YIKES the 3-0 Stanford Cardinal look formidable, at least on paper.

Coming to South Bend Stanford is 3-0 and ranked 16th by the AP.

The victims thus far:

Sacramento St. 52-17

UCLA 35-0

Wake Forest 68-24

This is the same Team that last year pummeled USC 55-21in the Coliseum and beat the Irish 45-38.

They lost a close one to Oklahoma in the Sun Bowl 31-27.

They are averaging 51 points a game, scoring with 10 passing touchdowns and 10 rushing.

Quite a balanced offense averaging 242 yards rushing per game and 233 yards passing.  Lot of players are getting there hands on the ball.

QB Andrew Luck is no slouch:

PASSING      GP-GS  Effic    Cmp-Att-Int   Pct   Yards  TD Long  Avg/G

Luck, Andrew  3 - 3    192.3    45 - 70 - 0    64.3   674     10    81     224.7

Luck is legitimate early Heisman talk.
13 receivers have been involved in the mix, 7 catching passes for touchdowns.

Scoring has been spread around thanks to lop-sided wins and bench clearing.  15 players have scored touchdowns.

Notre Dame transfer Nate Whitaker is 3-3 in Field Goals and the longest is 22 yards. What’s that tell you about Stanford constantly knocking in the Red Zone? He is 18-20 for PATs

On the defensive side, 35 players have been involved in making tackles on defense and special teams.
