Stanford, by virtue of its loss to Utah earlier this season, was already a long shot to have a chance at playing in the BCS National Championship Game. But after tonight’s defeat, the Cardinal are probably going to be on the outside looking in for any of the BCS bowl games.
USC, which is now 5-1 since the firing of Lane Kiffin, did the unthinkable and knocked off No. 4 Stanford at home, 20-17, on a 47-yard field goal by Andre Heidari in the final minute of play. The Trojans’ victory means that Oregon is the only one-loss team in the Pac-12 North, and unless the Ducks fall to either Arizona or Oregon State, the Cardinal will probably be on the outside looking in BCS-wise this postseason.
Here’s the game-winner – USC’s fans rushed the field right as the game ended.
