The Stanford Cardinal continued their roll tonight, routing the Colorado Buffaloes 48-7. From the get-go, Stanford took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter scoring on a blocked field goal on Colorado's opening drive, then scoring a touchdown on their first offensive drive. Andrew Luck was once again masterful, completing 22 of 33 passes for 370 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. His one interception was off a tipped pass, as well.
Colorado's offense was suffocated, as Stanford forced them to pass the football. The Buffaloes had just 60 yards on the ground, but they also struggled through the air. Quarterback Tyler Hansen completed just a hair over 50 percent of his passes as the Buffaloes failed to do much of anything after their first few drives, as mentioned about the first ending in a blocked field goal.
Stanford moves to 5-0 on the season and 3-0 in the Pac 12, while Colorado falls to 1-5 and 0-2 in their debut Pac 12 season.
