2012 Fiesta Bowl Score Update: Cowboys Off To Slow Start Against Cardinal, Down 7-0

The offensive fireworks that were expected in this match up featuring Stanford and Oklahoma State haven't exactly appeared yet, at least through one quarter. Andrew Luck has been up and down with 68 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception on 4 of 6 throwing. Brandon Weeden hasn't looked like himself either through the first fifteen minutes completing 5-10 of his passes for only 26 yards and one interception.

Despite having the fourth overall offense, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy elected to defer after winning the coin toss. And it seemed at first, that his defense would reward him holding the Cardinal to a missed field goal and a three and out in their first two possessions. But the Cowboys couldn't take advantage as Weeden threw a pick on their first play then could muster nothing but a punt on their second drive.

When Luck got the ball back for the third time, he made the Cowboys pay, throwing a beautiful 53 yard strike to a wide open Ty Montgomery to put the first and only points on the board.

All didn't go Luck's way though, as he threw a pick to Justin Gilbert on a very alert play once he got the ball back. But yet, the Cowboys still couldn't get anything started as they were forced to punt the ball for the third time in four possessions as the first quarter came to a close.
