How quickly fortunes can turn! Stanford seemingly had Washington State held to a 3-and-out when, right before 4th down, Stanford got called for an illegal substitution. Washington State was gifted a fresh set of downs on the unforced mistake as Stanford fans collectively groaned.
But four plays later, facing 4th-and-1, Bobby Okereke intercepted a pass from Luke Falk and returned it for a touchdown to put Stanford on top, 21-17:
This was Stanford’s sixth consecutive game with an interception. This is Stanford’s longest streak of interceptions since the 2011-2012 seasons.
