The Cardinal won the Pac-10 opener with relative ease, wearing down the Bruins, Ted Miller of ESPN’s Pac-10 coverage was at the Rose Bowl with the report.
UCLA’s defense was game most of the night, but it wore down in the second half because the Bruins offense is simply lost.
The new “pistol” is firing blanks (I know, that’s a bad one). Quarterback Kevin Prince, who’s missed nearly every practice this season due to injury, only completed 6 of 12 passes for 39 yards before being yanked for Richard Brehaut at the start of the fourth. Prince threw an interception and his fumble was returned 21 yards for a TD.
Stanford wasn’t great. Quarterback Andrew Luck only completed 11 of 24 passes (two TDs). His running — 63 yards on 7 carries — was better than his passing.
