The Stanford Cardinal have put on a show in the opening half of their contest against the San Jose State Spartans and lead 27-3 heading into halftime. A combination of timely offense and good defense opened up opportunities for the team as they put up ten points in the second quarter.
Quarterback Andrew Luck has done a solid job managing the Cardinal offense. He has spread the ball around to several different receivers, connecting with seven receivers total. All seven receivers have one catch each except for Chris Owusu and Ryan Hewitt, who have two each. Luck has engineered a very balanced pass attack.
Luck has connected on 10 of 15 passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns. Both of those touchdowns came in the second quarter, one to Zach Ertz at the start of the period for a 13-yard score and the other to Ryan Hewitt for a 2-yard strike.
The Spartans finally managed to put some points on the board with 49 seconds left in the half as Harrison Waid connected on an 18-yard field goal. Waid missed a 23-yard attempt earlier in the second quarter.
Stanford is in control of this game and have had a good overall performance in the first half. The Cardinal will look to maintain, if not increase, their lead in the second half.
