Stanford leads 24-7 at the half


It’s halftime, it’s raining – lightly – and Stanford leads 24-7. The Cougars’ two turnovers hurt, though Stanford had just three points, those coming from the first one. And Washington State took advantage of the Cardinal’s turnover – an Andrew Luck interception – to score its lone touchdown – a Jeff Tuel to Jared Karstetter 12-yard pass. But WSU could have more points and the Cougars have missed just enough tackles to keep two Stanford scoring drives alive. … The Cardinal get the ball to start the second half. … The halftime stats: Total offense – WSU 129, Stanford 255; rushing yards – WSU 41, Stanford 142; Passing – Jeff Tuel 8 of 12 for 88 yards, one interception and one touchdown; Andrew Luck 11 of 16 for 113 yards, one pick and a TD. … The Cougars are actually getting some pressure on Luck, but he’s tough to sack. And Tuel hasn’t had the time for the receivers to make the double moves they need to get open. … By the way, do you think WSU, trailing 17-7, should have gone for the fourth-and-1 from their 36 with 2:57 left in the first half? Or was the punt the right thing to do? … We’ll be back after the game with our stories. Until then …
