Scott Laidlaw rushed for 132 yards on 23 carries and Stanford overcame a 17-13 deficit early in the fourth quarter to win the 1973 Big Game, 26-17. I'm not a fan of the uninspired Touchdown Illustrated cover, though the Cal helmets look pretty cool. To go from the 1972 masterpiece to something like this is pretty jarring. Unfortunately, it's also a sign of things to come.
A young Herm Edwards, who always played to win the game.
