3Q: Stanford 28, OSU 24
By Kevin Gemmell
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Momentum, she is a swinging.
The Cardinal stopped OSU on its first drive of the second half, then a 26-yard punt return from Drew Terrell gave the Cardinal solid field position at their own 41. They marched down to the OSU 15 where Andrew Luck connected with Zach Ertz on a 16-yard scoring strike.
After stopping OSU again, Quinn Sharp pinned the Cardinal at their own 3-yard line, and fullback Geoff Meinken fumbled at the Stanford 4, which OSU recovered.
But OSU failed to get in after three tries and opted for a 19-yard Sharp field goal.
