Halftime: Stanford 31, California 0
By Ted Miller
The Big Game is over at halftime.
Stanford leads 31-0, and there is no way that California can score 32 in the second half with struggling quarterback Brock Mansion.
That means we won't have to talk about Cal's split road-home personality any more. The Bears can get blown out at home, too.
Jim Harbaugh is going to even his record with Jeff Tedford at 2-2. And the Cardinal are making a major statement about themselves as the nation's best one-loss team.
Mansion has completed just 8 of 16 for 57 yards with two interceptions and a fumbled snap.
Meanwhile, there is Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. He's completed 10 of 13 passes for 165 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers. And he had two runs for 69 yards, including a 58-yard effort that included him running over Cal safety Sean Cattouse.
Stanford outgained the Bears 312 yards to 119 in the first half.
The only question remaining is how many points Harbaugh wants to score. And if he goes for two at any point in the second half.
