Harkey Lifts UCLA to Win with Last-Minute Touchdown
Oct. 18, 2008
The Bruins (3-4, 2-2 Pac-10) extended their win streak over the Cardinal (4-4, 3-2) to five in a row overall and six straight at the Rose Bowl.
Craft, who engineered a similar late rally to beat Tennessee in the season opener, completed six passes against Stanford during an 11-play drive that began at the UCLA 13 with 2:23 remaining. He finished it off when he sprinted toward the right sideline and, after defenders rushed toward him, threw to the wide-open tight end in the right side of the end zone.
The Bruins began their march after Stanford's Aaron Zagory kicked a 29-yard field goal with 2:31 remaining to extend the Cardinal's lead to 20-16.
Craft, despite being sacked seven times, finished 23-of-39 for 285 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.
The UCLA victory overshadowed a 138-yard, two-touchdown rushing performance by Stanford's Toby Gerhart.
Kai Forbath kicked field goals of 37, 19 and 28 yards for the Bruins. Zagory made kicks of 40 and 29 yards for the Cardinal.
Stanford's Tavita Pritchard, back in the lineup after leaving last week's game with a concussion, threw only 12 times and completed five for just 51 yards and was intercepted once.
