It's just another Luck day for Stanford football

 

Andrew Luck earned Pac-12 Conference Player of the Week honors Monday, two days after leading the seventh-ranked Stanford football team to a 44-14 victory over Washington State.

Luck, who threw four touchdown passes, all in the second half, took over the conference lead with his 180.55 efficiency rating, third best in the country.

Luck threw for 336 yards, and connected for touchdowns with tight end Levine Toilolo twice in the third quarter. He also threw an 8-yard completion to Stepfan Taylor for a touchdown and later added a 28-yard scoring toss to Coby Fleener.

Luck, who has won more games (26) than any other starting Stanford quarterback, seeks to keep things moving in the right direction Saturday, when the Cardinal (4-0, 6-0) hosts No. 22 Washington (3-0, 5-1) at 5 p.m.

Luck, a Heisman Trophy candidate, has helped Stanford score in all 31 trips into the red zone this season.

Luck ranks third at Stanford in career touchdowns (63), fourth in passing yards (7,632), first in passing efficiency (163.2) and accomplished all of it in less than three full years.
