2009 Stanford Cardinal Week 1 Stanford VS Washington State Result: Stanford Losses Turnover Battle, But Wins Game 61-20. In week 1 of the college football season, Stanford traveled north to face the Washington State Cougars in a PAC 10 matchup. From the outset, it was clear that Stanford was the superior team. The Wazzou defense did little to deter the Stanford passing attack. Andrew Luck, the highly touted RS freshman QB, started off his career with a bang. He threw for 322 yards on 20/31 passing, with 5 TDs. His only blemish were the turnovers. Luck's fumble and interception were both returned for Wazzou TDs. Luck threw early and often to a talented stable of receivers. Doug Baldwin had 8 grabs for 94 yards and a score, while Chris Owusu had 152 yards receiving to go along with 3 TDs. The defense played solid football for the most part. QB Kevin Lopina didnt find many open receivers against Stanford. This can be partially attributed to the pass coverage, but more likely it was a result of the pass rush. Stanford's defense combined for 8 sacks. Next week, Stanford travels to Maryland.
