Throwback Thursday: Stanford's dramatic victory over Notre Dame

It was a fantastic game and a fantastic way to send off the Seniors.

For more great Stanford videos check out Stanford Athletics on YouTube.

From our Rule of Tree game recap:

"Stanford drove inside the Stanford 10 with under two minutes to play and the clock ticking. David Shaw opted not to use any of his time outs apparently having decided that red zone defense is where Stanford would make their last stand. On third and three from the Stanford ten Notre Dame came up just shy forcing a dramatic fourth and one but Josh Adams came up huge for the Irish converting on fourth down and moving the ball to the Stanford two. The next play DeShone Kizer bootlegged into the end zone. for the touchdown. Notre Dame takes a 36-35 lead with 30 seconds left. The play was reviewed and Kizer probably was short, but the play stood.

With 25 seconds left Stanford took over from the Stanford 27. A Notre Dame face mask gave Stanford a quick 15 yards and David Shaw used a timeout. The next play Hogan throws deep to Rector but the pass sailed over his head. The next play Hogan hits Cajuste for 26 yards across the middle of the field getting the Cardinal into field goal range.

Conrad Ukropina would attempt a 45-yard kick and nailed it Stanford wins! 38-36. What a game!!"

Go Stanford!
