Andrew Luck Named Pac-10 Offensive Player Of The Week, Chasing John Elway

It's surprisingly the first time this year that Luck received offensive. The Pac-10 made the official announcement today.

Luck, a sophomore from Houston, Texas, completed 23 of 32 passes for 293 yards with two touchdowns (45, 5 yards) and no interceptions in the 42-17 win over No. 13 Arizona. He also rushed three times for 25 yards, bringing his season total to 370 rushing yards - most ever in a single season by a Stanford quarterback. He now has 22 touchdown passes on the year, which rank tied for fourth on Stanford’s all-time single-season charts.

So who is he chasing?

[Luck ranks] fourth on Stanford's all-time single-season list with Steve Dils (1978) and five shy of the school's all-time record of 27, shared by John Elway (1980) and Steve Stenstrom (1993).

With at least three games (plus a bowl game) left in his Cardinal career and some not-so-impressive pass defenses left to face (Arizona State, Cal and Oregon State have had their troubles against good quarterbacks this season), Luck could very well pass the best quarterback in Stanford's history. And who knows, Luck may have something to say about that when his career is done.
