1Q update: Stanford 3, Washington State 0
By Kevin Gemmell
PULLMAN, Wash. -- Turnovers and challenges accented an other wise sloppy first quarter from both teams.
Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck threw his third interception of the season on his first pass attempt -- a streak intended for Jamal-Rashad Patterson that had too much air under it.
Washington State pulled a little misdirection of its own to start the game. After announcing that Marshall Lobbestael would be the starting quarterback earlier in the week, it was Jeff Tuel who started the game for the Cougars.
A 23-yard field goal from Jordan Williamson is the game's only scoring.
A scary moment on Stanford's second possession when wide receiver Chris Owusu took a hard hit and was on the ground for several minutes. He eventually walked off the field on his own, but it is unknown if he will return.
He's standing on the sidelines without a helmet, similar to how Coby Fleener was treated in Arizona after taking a hard shot.
Stanford has yet to allow any points in the first quarter this season.
