Midway through the second quarter, Stanford was able to put together a 78 yard drive that ended in a 6 yard Tyler Gaffney touchdown rush to put the Cardinal back on top.

At halftime, Luck only has 81 passing yards and an interception, completing only eight of 15 pass attempts.Cal quarterback Zach Maynard, meanwhile, is 11-for-14 with 168 yards and a touchdown. This game is anything but over, and right now the outcome of the 2011 Big Game is up in the air.
