No. 25 Stanford 50, Duke 13
This was the tune-up game Stanford needed. One week before matching up against No. 2 USC, the Cardinal slammed Duke 50-13 on the heels of Drew Terrell's 75-yard punt return for a touchdown and 19-yard touchdown catch. Replacing Andrew Luck, Josh Nunes completed 16-30 passes for 275 yards in his second start, while the Stanford defense held Duke to only 27 yards on the ground.
