Stanford’s Luck sets record, tops Notre Dame
Stanford 28, Notre Dame 14
Andrew Luck threw three of his four touchdown passes in the first half in what was likely his final home game to lead No. 6 Stanford to a 28-14 victory over No. 22 Notre Dame on Saturday.
The Cardinal (11-1) cashed in on a pair of Notre Dame miscues in the second quarter, including an interception that led to an 11-yard touchdown throw from Luck to Ty Montgomery with 10 seconds left in the half to make it 21-0.
The Fighting Irish (8-4) had a miserable first half offensively, gaining 75 yards and turning the ball over twice. Additionally, David Ruffer missed a 20-yard field goal in the second quarter that Stanford followed with a 10-play, 80-yard scoring drive.
Luck, who completed 20-of-30 passes for 233 yards, capped the scoring with his fourth touchdown pass, a 55-yard toss to Coby Fleener with 5:40 remaining in the game. Fleener also scored on a 28-yard catch in the second quarter.
Stepfan Taylor had 149 yards rushing for Stanford. Michael Floyd caught eight passes for 92 yards and a touchdown for Notre Dame.
It is thought by many Luck will forego his senior season and enter the NFL draft.
