After going half of the first quarter with both Stanford and Oklahoma State's offenses not doing much of anything, the Cardinal was able to connect on a deep Andrew Luck pass for a touchdown. Stanford had been handing the football off to Stepfan Taylor to run the football, perfectly setting up the 53-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Ty Montgomery. Andrew Luck dropped back to pass, executed the play fake perfectly, and Montgomery was wide open down the field.
The easy touchdown puts Stanford ahead early 7-0. The Oklahoma State defense played well early in the game, but if they're going to start biting on the play action fakes of Stanford, they could be in for a long night. Literally every Okie State defensive player bit on the play action fake by Luck. Luck showed his arm off a bit on the throw as well, throwing the ball about 50-yards in the air and hitting Montgomery in stride.
