College football: Stanford wins it in closing seconds – Los Angeles Times

Keller Chryst threw a three-yard touchdown pass to JJ Arcega-Whiteside with 20 seconds left and No. 20 Stanford survived Bryce Love’s absence for a 15-14 come-from-behind victory over Oregon State on Thursday night at Corvallis, Ore.

Love, the nation’s leader with an average of 198.1 yards rushing per game, tweaked an ankle against Oregon on Oct. 14. The Cardinal, 6-2 overall and 5-1 in the Pac-12 Conference, announced that Love would sit out about 90 minutes before the start of the game.

Stanford went for it on fourth and 10 on the Oregon State 40 with 2:19 left in the game and Chryst hit Kaden Smith with a 25-yard pass to keep the drive alive. After Chryst found Arcega-Whiteside in the end zone, the two-point conversion failed but Stanford intercepted Oregon State quarterback Darell Garretson’s long pass with three seconds left.

The Beavers (1-7, 0-5) were playing the second game since the school parted ways with head coach Gary Andersen. Interim coach Cory Hall was the cornerbacks coach.
