POST GAME STANFORD NOTES

Colorado at Stanford, October 8, 2011

• The 13-straight wins ties the longest in school-history (1939-41) and continues to be the nation's longest.

• For Andrew Luck it was his fifth career 300-yard passing game and school-record 25th career win (25-5). The 423 yards at Arizona, 2009 was a career-best.

Stepfan Taylor's first-quarter touchdown run was the 22nd of his career and moved him ahead of Mike Mitchell (1993-97) for sole possession of No. 6 on the school's all-time list. Kerry Carter (1999-02) is next with 23 TD's.

• The Cardinal continue to have never trailed this season, stopping UCLA on the one-yard line last week and this week against Colorado, Max Bergen with a blocked field goal and 75-yard return with 11:01 in the first.

• Colorado missed two field goal attempts today and on the season, opponents have hit just 2-of-10 field goals this season. Bergen's block was the first of the season for the Cardinal.

• With Blake Lueders' sack in the first quarter, and AJ Tarpley's sack assist in the second, nine different players have a sack this year. Overall Stanford has 17 sacks.

Michael Thomas had the Cardinal's first interception of the year, in the fourth quarter, in the 172nd passing attempt of the season.

• It was the fourth time in five games Stanford had allowed a TD or less (all except for UCLA).

• With Corey Gatewood catching a pass tonight, he became the 15th player to catch a pass this season.

Griff Whalen set his career-high his receiving yards (was 78 receiving yards at Oregon last year) and the 30-yard TD pass was a career-long.

• Stanford is now 20-2 in the last 22 home games (winning nine straight), outscoring opponents 150-29 (48-7) at home this season.

• 30-13 over three-plus years and 25-6 dating back to the 2009 campaign. The 5-0 start by David Shaw is the best start to a Stanford career since Chuck Taylor win his first nine in 1951.

• The crowd of 50,360 was another sellout, the sixth sellout in new Stanford Stadium history.
