Keeping Up With Luck

The young man just about all Dolphin fans would love to see in a Dolphins uniform next year, Andrew Luck, led Stanford to their 15th win in a row with a thrilling 56-48 triple overtime victory over USC. Luck was 29 of 40 for 330 yards and 3 TD's, but also showed that he is human by throwing a pick six late in the game to give USC a 7 point led with just over 3 minutes left in the game. But Luck drove the Cardinals 60 yards in 2:30 to tie it up, then threw a 5 yard TD pass in the third OT to win it. Luck also tacked on 36 yards and a TD on the ground. Luck's stats for the season: 174 of 242, 2218 yards (71.9% comp) 23 TD, 4 INT and his QB rating is 176.9

I watched the end of this game last night and the thing that impressed me the most came after Luck had thrown the INT to give USC the lead. Sure, Luck was mad at himself, but when the offense came back on that field, nobody was sulking or pouting or looking desperate. They all had that look of confidence, like they KNEW Luck would still lead them to a win. It's so easy to see why everyone wants him.
