STANFORD, Calif. - Harbaugh Pleased With Final ScrimmageLuck Looks Sharp in Final Tune Up

Stanford went through its final scrimmage of fall camp this afternoon and unlike last week, head coach Jim Harbaugh was very satisfied with today's effort from his team that is gearing up for the season opener at Washington State on eight days.

Redshirt freshman Andrew Luck continues to look sharp running the first team offense. He completed 10-of-13 passes for 137 yards and one touchdown, a 60-yard bomb to Chris Owusu.

Tavita Pritchard also looked sharp, completing 6-of-8 passes for 53 yards.

No less than 14 Cardinal receivers caught passes in the scrimmage.

As sharp as Luck looked, Stanford's running backs also got plenty of work today. Freshman Stepfan Taylor carried seven times for 73 yards, including a run of 50 yards which set up a 20-yard TD run on the next play. Taylor also caught one pass for 30 yards.

Jeremy Stewart carried four times for 23 yards, including a one-yard touchdown run.

'It was a good scrimmage today,' said Harbaugh. 'We ran more plays than we intended but our guys are building up a necessary callous to contact. I was very pleased with our energy level.'

'We played on a much higher level than a week ago,' he continued. 'Our receivers did a real nice job today catching the ball. They are in a very good rhythm right now with Andrew.'

Stanford will continue its workouts tomorrow on Elliott Field.
