FINAL: Stanford 27, UCLA 24
What a game in Stanford!
UCLA certainly had its chance to win, but the Cardinal did just enough to claim the title.
More recap to come.
UCLA Missed Field Goal
Fairbairn misses wide left and Stanford will be the 2012 Pac-12 Champions!
UCLA Fourth Down
Not a safe throw by Hundley into traffic on third down, but it falls incomplete. Field goal attempt coming.
Nice, safe call by Mora and UCLA with the quick out.
Hundley hits Johnson to move the chains! What poise by the freshman!
UCLA at the Stanford 40-yard line. 0:47 remaining.
Johnathan Franklin, who has been money for UCLA has a huge drop on third-down swing pass. It's down to this.
Hundley just misses on a dangerous throw to Johnson. 1:06 remaining.
Roughing the Passer
Wow, just a terrible penalty by Stanford's Trent Murphy. UCLA already near midfield now with the clock ticking near one minute.
Stanford 27, UCLA 24—Fourth Quarter, 2:18
UCLA will have just over two minutes and zero timeouts now to take the ball about 80 yards for the win or less for the tie.
Incomplete pass! UCLA comes up with the defensive stop it needed. The game now hinges on this final Bruin drive.
Here's the game, folks. 2:29 remaining for the Pac-12 title.
Great play from Datone Jones to force an enormous third down and long.
Stanford first down! Bruins forgot all about Hogan on the zone read and he made them pay.
UCLA just burnt its last timeout. Will have about four minutes minutes to work with if it can come up with a stop here.
Stanford 27, UCLA 24—Fourth Quarter, 4:39
Hundley nearly threw his second pick, overlooking linebacker A.J. Tarpley. It was the sack by Josh Mauro that set the play up, however.
Look for Stanford to pound this clock out now against a tired UCLA defense. Bruins need a quick stand.
Franklin now over 200 yards for the game.
Stanford was offsides but Franklin went the opposite direction for an easy first down anyway. His success continues as the Cardinal defense is looking tired as well.
Stanford Field Goal
Stanford 27, UCLA 24—Fourth Quarter, 6:49
Jordan Williamson boots his second field goal of the day to give Stanford the lead.
Tough spot for UCLA now trailing by three. Still a lot of time left to take down off this clock, but points are the main priority.
It'll be on the shoulders of a freshman quarterback, no less.
OR a holding penalty from Stanford. That may work as well.
Bruins may need a turnover to survive.
As expected, the pounding from the Stanford offense is starting to noticeably wear on the UCLA defense.
Don't really understand this, but I think it's a good thing?
This Fox announcing crew sounds like the old Alabama Cable Network group calling the high school game of the week. And I love it.— Josh (@JoshuaBBlack) December 1, 2012
