2Q: Stanford 31, Washington 14

By Kevin Gemmell

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- With running backs like this, who needs quarterbacks?

So much focus this week was on Stanford's Andrew Luck and Washington's Keith Price. Both have taken a backseat to Stanford's Stepfan Taylor and Washington's Chris Polk .

Polk has rushed for 127 yards and two touchdowns.

Taylor has 130 yards and a touchdown.

These were two top-20 rush defenses. So far the teams have combined for 366  yards on the ground.

Luck, however, does still have two touchdown passes. One from 1 yard out and another from 5 yards.
