Andrew Luck is off to a spectacular start to this season and the Stanford's star quarterback will look to continue his dominance as the Cardinal travel north to Pullman to take on the Cougars. Washington State enters the game with a record of 3-2 and has surprised many around the nation with their winning record.

Luck has thrown for 1,383 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2011 despite losing reps because of Stanford's knack of knocking opponents out of the games early. He has thrown just two interceptions and is completing just over 72-percent of his passes. While the game this weekend does not project to be a close one, the Cardinal will need their star quarterback to be at the top of his game to ensure an upset does not happen.

As for the Cougars, after being one of the worst FBS teams in the nation the last two years, WSU is off to a solid start of 3-2, though the toughest opponent they have faced is probably UCLA, who they fell to last weekend by just three points. The team currently ranks in the top-15 in terms of passing yards and points-per-game of any D-I program in the country.
