Colorado Vs. Stanford Final Score: Andrew Luck Throws Three TDs In 48-7 Cardinal Victory

Jon Embree's first year at the helm of the Colorado Buffaloes has not turned out as well as expected. His team has sunk to 1-5 after a 48-7 loss to the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday evening. The game started off well when Stanford fumbled the kickoff, allowing Colorado to recover it. But that's really when things went bad.

Will Oliver's field goal attempt was blocked at the end of the ensuing drive and returned for a touchdown. Stanford went on to score three more touchdowns in the first half of the game. Colorado managed its one score on a Tyler Hansen five-yard touchdown pass to Tony Clemons in the second quarter. A 76-yard screen pass to Rodney Stewart set up that eventual scoring play.

Stewart, however, managed just 21 yards on 11 carries. Tyler Hansen wasn't that great either, completing just 16 of 30 passes for 204 yards. Stanford's Andrew Luck, though, finished 26-of-33 for 370 yards and three touchdowns. His last touchdown pass was a 30-yard strike to Griff Whalen.

The Buffs stay on the road next week with a trip to the northwest. They will face the Washington Huskies.
