No. 16 Stanford took down Southern California tonight 37-35 before a sold-out crowd. The ending was dramatic, with Nate Whitaker compensating for a missed extra-point by kicking a field goal with four seconds left on the clock. Possibly the greatest moment of the game occurred when Stanford QB Andrew Luck flattened USC’s Shareece Wright after a fumble by Stephan Taylor in the final minutes of the first half.
The Trojans have now lost three out of their four most recent games against the Cardinal.
