STANFORD, Calif. — Andrew Luck insists his dorm room doesn’t have a calendar. He doesn’t wear a watch, and his outdated cellphone doesn’t even show the day of the week.
Luck needs no reminder about today.
Since he announced in a one-sentence news release in January that he would return to school, Luck instantly put Stanford and Oregon on a collision course for that date. Everything for both sides has been building toward the moment.
Finally, it’s here.
Luck leads No. 3 Stanford against lightning-quick LaMichael James and sixth-ranked Oregon in the Pac-12’s showdown of the season tonight, shifting attention to the West Coast for a game that could decide the eventual league champion and keep the winner in the national title mix.
