The usual suspects performed in the early college football games on Saturday in the Pac-12 conference. Andrew Luck continued his Heisman Trophy campaign as the Stanford Cardinal blew out Duke on the road, and the Oregon Ducks got back on track with a home pasting of the Nevada Wolfpack in Eugene.

No. 6 Stanford 44, Duke 14: The Cardinal picked up the first road win of the season for the Pac-12 conference, as Andrew Luck completed 20 of 28 passes for 290 yards and four touchdowns, with one interception.

No. 13 Oregon 69, Nevada 20: Darron Thomas threw for 295 yards and a whopping six touchdowns as the Ducks recovered from their opening-week loss to annihilate Nevada. Oregon racked up 603 yards of total offense.

No. 8 Wisconsin 35, Oregon State 0: The Beavers are an absolute mess, one week after losing at home to Sacramento State, they got shutout by a tough Wisconsin team. Oregon State appears to have committed to freshman quarterback Sean Mannion, who completed a bevy of short passes for 250 yards in the loss. Beavers punter Johnny Hekker had a punt of negative four yards despite a lack of a rush.

Washington 40, Hawaii 32: The Huskies built a 21-0 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. Keith Price completed 18 of 25 passes for 315 yards and four touchdowns for Washington, who improved to 2-0.
