Defense Dominates Duke

Well, not all questions about our offense were answered on a pleasant Saturday night, but Stanford came to play against Duke, sending the ACC representatives on a long flight home. A Drew Terrell punt return for touchdown, an Ed Reynolds pick-six and three TD throws from Josh Nunes, including one to WR Jamal-Rashad Patterson, sent everyone home reasonably happy on a big night for the Pac-12.

Defense Dominates Duke

Stanford, Calif. (AP) - Drew Terrell returned a punt 75 yards for a score and caught a 19-yard touchdown pass, Ed Reynolds took one of his two interceptions for another touchdown and No. 25 Stanford rebounded from a disappointing debut to roll past Duke 50-13 on Saturday night.

Josh Nunes completed 16 of 30 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns, showing more flair in his second start since No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck left for the NFL. The redshirt junior overcame his first interception to move the Cardinal (2-0) offense with a strong and steady hand that never surfaced in a 20-17 win over San Jose State last week.

Jordan Richards also picked off a pass by Duke's Sean Renfree to highlight a dominant defensive effort by Stanford in a final tuneup before hosting second-ranked Southern California next week.
