Luck Hands Over Keys to Farm

Sophomore QB Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck grabbed the game ball and finished off what his teammates had urged him to do all week: make sure it ended up in the right hands.
        While seventh-ranked Stanford's season-opening 57-3 romp over San Jose State on Saturday was filled with highlights, there might not have been a more significant moment than when Luck handed the ball off to new coach David Shaw in the locker room. It was a gesture that every Cardinal endorsed, and it was more than just a touching scene or a warm embrace.

        The keys to The Farm were officially passed.         Stanford dominated in every phase albeit against an opponent that was 1-12 last season and, perhaps most importantly, had that familiar swagger former coach Jim Harbaugh created.
