Stanford outlasts USC in triple-OT thriller
Luck rallied the Cardinal back, overcoming his fourth interception of the season to force the first overtime game at the sold-out Coliseum since 2003.
Jeremy Stewart scored on a dive over the line to cap Stanford’s first possession of overtime, but Barkley hit Woods in the corner for a 15-yard score to even it. Freshman tight end Randall Telfer turned a short pass from Barkley into a TD to start the second OT, but Luck found Levine Toilolo with a cross-field TD pass moments later, and Whitaker knuckled home the extra point.
Woods had nine catches for 89 yards and a score.
Luck threw early TD passes to Tyler Gaffney and Ryan Hewitt, but he was at his best on the Cardinal’s final drive of regulation. He completed 10 straight passes down the stretch, yet still got help after throwing an incompletion on third down near midfield when USC safety T.J. McDonald needlessly leveled receiver Chris Owusu, keeping the drive alive.
After Robey’s TD, the Coliseum announcer warned fans in the sold-out stadium against rushing the field after the final gun.
Turns out, that gun was still about an hour away.
Stanford is USC’s oldest rival, and the schools have an eventful recent history during the Cardinal’s improbable rise as a football power. Stanford posted one of the most shocking upsets in recent college football history here four years ago before a 55-21 rout of USC in 2009 that included the most points allowed in USC history _ until the latest unforgettable night at the Coliseum.
