Entering the 108th Big Game on Nov. 19, Stanford's seniors had never beaten
Three minutes into the second half,
"Steve Levy - that guy did a great job," Stanford head coach Walt Harris said. "Those scrambles were a huge part of that drive that broke our backs."
Then, with just two minutes left and a 20-3 lead,
A failure to convert opportunities repeatedly haunted Stanford. Senior cornerback T.J. Rushing dropped a would-be interception that hit him in both arms and the chest on the drive that ended in Forcett's score. Later, senior kicker Michael Sgroi pushed a 41-yard field goal wide right that would have cut the deficit to just a touchdown with 9:31 to play.
