Stanford Post-Game Notes
at Duke, September 10, 2011
The 10-game win streak is now the fourth longest in school history.
Andrew Luck threw for four touchdowns for the fifth time in his career. His 51 TD passes in his career are one behind Jim Plunkett for third place all-time (52). Luck went 20-28 for 288 yards pushing his career yardage numbers to 6,372 yards (sixth all-time).
The six sacks are the most since six against San Jose State in 2009. After allowing 27 yards rushing against San Jose State, Duke had just 35 yards rushing.
Chris Owusu crossed the century mark in receiving for the fourth time in his career and first since he had a career-best 165 yards against Arizona last year. He had two 100-yard games in 2009.
It was the 10th and 11th career touchdowns for Coby Fleener (10:01 in first, 6:41 in third). With Zach Ertz' TD catch in the fourth (37-7), six of the first eight Luck TD passes went to the tight ends.
It was the sixth career rushing touchdown for Jeremy Stewart, making it 30-7 in the third quarter (4:06).
Stanford has now scored first in 12 of last 15 games and scored points on its first drive in 11 of the last 15 games.
With a 17-7 lead at halftime, Stanford has outscored its opponents 345-100 in the first half over the last 15 opponents.
Andrew Luck threw his first interception of the season in the second quarter. He had eight all of last year, the last coming in the first half of the Orange Bowl.
