STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - No quarterback in the country has had to manage expectations the way Josh Nunes has had to this season succeeding the NFL's No. 1 overall pick.
In the last three weeks alone, the redshirt junior quarterback outplayed Heisman Trophy hopeful Matt Barkley to upset Southern California, shouldered the blame of a stunning loss at Washington and rallied No. 17 Stanford (4-1, 2-1 Pac-12) from a two-touchdown deficit for a thrilling 54-48 overtime win against Arizona.
Nobody said filling Andrew Luck's shoes would be a smooth transition.
Fair or not, Stanford's streakiness this season has been tied directly to its new quarterback, and both are still somewhat of an unknown heading to seventh-ranked Notre Dame (5-0) on Saturday.
