Huskies score with 21 seconds left to beat Stanford
Dylan Morris threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Jalen McMillan with 21 seconds remaining as Washington defeated host Stanford 20-13 in a Pacific-12 Conference game Saturday night.
Peyton Henry kicked four field goals for the Huskies (4-4, 3-2 Pac-12), who won at Stanford for the first time since 2007.
The Huskies got the ball back at their own 33-yard line with 2:51 left.
Morris threw an 11-yard pass to McMillan and Sean McGrew rushed for 16 yards to get them into Stanford territory. Cameron Davis gained 6 yards on third-and-4 from the 34 and Morris scampered for 7 yards to give UW a third-and-2 from the 20. Instead of setting up a field goal, Morris threw a strike to McMillan in the back right corner of the end zone.
The Huskies piled up 229 yards rushing, with McGrew gaining 114 yards on 19 carries and Davis adding 99 yards on 18 attempts. Morris completed 17-of-25 passes for 146 yards.
Trailing 12-3 entering the fourth quarter, the Cardinal took the lead as quarterback Tanner McKee scored on a 1-yard sneak and Joshua Karty added a 43-yard field goal with 7:05 remaining.
McKee was 21-of-32 passing for 194 yards with two interceptions, the latter by Washington’s Brendan Radley-Hiles with 6 seconds left. McKee’s first interception and a lost fumble on a sack led to UW field goals.
Austin Jones rushed 16 times for 62 yards for the Cardinal (3-5, 2-4), who suffered their third straight loss.
Washington took a 9-3 halftime lead as both teams failed to convert red-zone trips into touchdowns.
Karty kicked a 35-yard field goal on the opening drive of the game.
It remained 3-0 until the second quarter, when Henry hit from 24, 37 and 32 yards, capping drives of 57, 50 and 81 yards. The last kick came on the final play of the half.
