2012 Pac 10 Regular Season
Hogan to Ertz
13 Stanford vs. 2 Oregon
17 - 14
November 17, 2012
Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR
Oregon looked to be on its way to a National Championship but first they had to contend with Stanford. Oregon had home field advantage and was favored to win and with time running out in the 4th quarter they were up by a touchdown. That's when Kevin Hogan hit Zach Ertz for a 10yd pass to tie game at 14 - 14. Stanford then won the game in overtime.
2007 Pac 10 Regular Season
Stanford vs. 2 USC
24 - 23
October 6, 2007
Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
USC was the preseason favorite to win another National Championship and entered the Stanford game undefeated. But Jim Harbaugh had had his eye on USC all season, and despite entering the game with a record of 1 - 3, Harbaugh was looking for an upset. Before the game Stanford was handed a setback with the injury of it's starting quarterback T.C. Ostrander, but it didn't matter. Quarterback Tavita Pritchard had never started a game prior to that night but nonetheless led Stanford to a huge upset with the biggest play coming with less than a minute to go in the 4th quarter. Stanford was down 6 with :54 to play when Pritchard found Mark Bradford in the endzone for the winning score.
1990 Big Game
Revenge for The Play
Stanford vs. Cal
27 - 25
November 17, 1990
California Memorial Stadium, Berkeley
Stanford had scored with 12 sec left and was down 24 - 25. They tried for a 2pt conversion and it was intercepted. Reminiscent of "the Play," Cal thought they had won and stormed the field. Stanford did an onside kick, recovered it and John Hopkins stunned Cal fans with a 39 yd field goal for the win as time expired.
1971 Rose Bowl
Plunkett to Vataha
12 Stanford vs. 2 Ohio State
27 - 17
January 1, 1971
Rose Bowl Stadium, Pasadena, CA
Ohio state headed in to the Rose Bowl looking to win another National Championship, but Stanford had other plans. Down 13 - 14 to start the fourth quarter, Stanford stepped up with two touchdowns to win the game. Jim Plunkett's to 10 yard pass to Randy Vataha for the touchdown was the last score of the game and the final nail in the coffin for Ohio State.
