After a sluggish first half, the Cardinal exploded in the second half to defeat Washington State, 44-14.
Here's Jon Wilner's game story from the Bay Area News Group
Then Stanford's tight ends took over, with a little help from quarterback Andrew Luck, and a tight game turned into a blowout.
Luck completed six passes to his tight ends in the third quarter -- one went to Coby Fleener for 62 yards; two went to Levine Toilolo for touchdowns -- as the Cardinal pulled away for a 44-14 win at Martin Stadium.
The victory extended No. 7 Stanford's winning streak to 14 games, the longest streak in the nation and the longest in school history.In Wilner's notebook, he wrote that the Cardinal would likely be ranked around 8th in the first BCS rankings.
He was correct as the first rankings were announced on Sunday evening.
