Stanford 37, USC 35

Stanford students rush the field after the winning kick.

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.

Stanford Athletics also scored a major victory in water polo against USC, defeating the No. 1-ranked Trojans 5-3 in a game dominated by defense. Stanford goalie Brian Pingree proved a dominant force for the Cardinal with a career high 14 saves.
