Solomon Thomas Scores Final Touchdown in Win Over UCLA

It was merely icing on the cake, but it sure was fun.

Trailing by three points with four seconds left in the game, UCLA lined up for a Hail Mary. Joey Alfieri sacked UCLA QB Josh Rosen and stripped the ball. Solomon Thomas picked up the ball and returned it for a meaningless touchdown, as the clock expired and Stanford won 22-13.

The final score was a misleading 22-13 that did not reflect just what a nail-biter Stanford played for the entire game. Stanford trailed for nearly the entire game before finally scoring the go-ahead touchdown, 16-13, with just 24 seconds to spare.
