Stanford wasn't always pretty but it dispatched Duke in workmanlike fashion, despite Andrew Luck delivering a pick-six.
Other than the interception, Luck completed 20-of-28 for 290 yards with four touchdowns. So, you know, good day.
It's also good news the running game got on track. The Cardinal rushed for 205 yards. The defense yielded some yards but was mostly dominant. The Blue Devils got a late TD against reserves.
No. 6 Stanford should get its first real test of the year next Saturday at Arizona. The Wildcats are desperate, and they are tough in front of the 'Zona Zoo.
