SCOUT’S NOTEBOOK: STANFORD@USC
The Pac-12 battle between Stanford and USC was one for the ages, which saw the quarterbacks from both squads bring their “A” games, along with a host of others who flashed their skills on prime-time television .
No Luck involved in this one
Andrew Luck was sharp from the get-go, completing 29 of 40 throws for 330 yards and three touchdowns. In his first drive, he was successful in stepping away from pressure and throwing the ball on the move, as he did on a 23-yard hook-up with wide receiver Griff Whalen with Nick Perry breathing down his neck.
On 1st-and-15, Luck was very poised and confident in going through his progressions and coming back to his shallow option, Levine Toilolo, for seven yards.
