Stanford vs. Wake Forest

Recording didn't start until mid-1st QTR

Andrew Luck - Quarterback - #12 - Stanford (black jerseys)

1st - 6:31 - Very lofty, slow deep ball that is floated ... horrible coverage by CB ... this ball should have been broken up ... not impressed by this TD pass 35-yard TD pass.

1st - 1:40 - 3-3-5 formation by Wake Forest ... with blitzing LBer Luck reads Cover-1 shell zone ... smooth, accurate pass to WR on post route ... not a ball with much zip but it has correct amount of touch to make it an easy enough catch for the WR

1st - 1:11 - Ball is slightly off target on deep post ... Ball could have had a lot more zip but Luck floats it ... receiver could have had this ball, but Luck could have been more accurate here too ... receiver was wide open with blown coverage by safety ... clean pocket to throw from

2nd - 11:17 - Touchdown to wide open RB on flare route ...not an impressive pass, but you'll be impressed if you only read the box score

2nd - 7:55 - (3rd&6 on own 48 yd line) ... All receivers covered ... steps up in pocket for passing line ... quickly decipers to run with football ... Shows adequate athleticism to scramble ... nice hurdle to avoid sack once he crosses LOS ... not caught from behind by Wake Forest safety #21 (lets assume he runs a sub 4.65 40 time) ... 52 yard touchdown run for Andrew Luck. Very impressive play

2nd - 3:46 - Ball slightly overthrown on fade route from 2 yard line.

3rd - 13:10 - Very nice throw on fade route ... excellent touch and accuracy ... incomplete but Luck put the ball where it needed to be - only where his WR could catch it.

3rd - 11:10 - Nice route by WR ... good route combination and play call which fooled the defensive backs ... Luck throws to wide open WR for an easy TD ... hard to mess that play up.
