Stanford opens football season with 39-13 win

Original post made on Sep 5, 2009

Toby Gerhart did what he does best, making life a little bit easier for Andrew Luck, who was making his college debut. Chris Owusu had a terrific game until he took a pretty hard hit that sidelined him for most of the second half. Delano Howell proved to be a smash success in his first appearance as a cornerback, and Richard Sherman did just fine in his first game as a defensive back. It all added up to a Stanford victory, a 39-13 victory in the season and Pac-10 opener for both teams on Saturday in Pullman.

PLEASE PLEASE put the score at the top of the article with the home and away teams! It took 14 paragraphs before you even said who they were playing (12 if you are the uninitiated and dont know who the Cougars are). If you can't manage that please summize the game in the opening paragraph.
