Orange Bowl Winners - Luck and Stewart Shines

Luck was outstanding, and earned the honor of Orange Bowl MVP. But let’s not forget about running back Jeremy Stewart, who was surprisingly outstanding for Stanford, as well.

Stewart’s first touch of the game was a 60-yard rush on a perfectly blocked off tackle run to the left, which set the Cardinal up for its first score of the game. From there, Stewart went on to carry 17 more times, totaling 137 yards and two touchdowns.

As our Stanford blog, Rule Of Tree, points out, Stewart’s performance couldn’t have been more unexpected. Coming into the Orange Bowl, the senior had rushed for just 38 yards on 13 carries all season.
