Back to school, work this week for No. 6 Stanford



STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Andrew Luck spent the bye weekend stuck on his couch watching so much football that he had to force himself to get outside at one point, if nothing else just to take a break.

There won’t be many of those for a while.

With fall classes beginning this week and Stanford opening its Pac-12 home slate Saturday against UCLA, the strong-armed quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful will be plenty busy the rest of the season. Not just on the football field, either.

The architecture major is taking three classes this quarter: architecture since 1900, urban sustainability and archaic Greek art history. He also is planning to step up his practice regimen to make sure the sixth-ranked Cardinal (3-0) stay perfect.
