The Washington Huskies looked set to enter the break down by 17 to the mighty Stanford Cardinal, but a rare Keith Price mishap resulted in a Michael Thomas touchdown, and now it's 38-14 with 30 minutes to go. (Check here for score updates and discussion.)
This one looked to be a race to one billion points, but Stanford's weighty defense appears to have started to figure out the Huskies. In fact, other than a pair of Chris Polk runs (of 46 and 61 yards), UW had only 133 yards before hurling some deep throws to conclude the half. (The other way of looking at it: 321 total yards for Washington!)
Andrew Luck has been game-managerly, pitching 13 times for 109 yards and two touchdowns. With a lead like this, he may not have to do a whole lot else unless the Dawgs can claw back in the third.
