Stanford Vs. USC Score Update: Andrew Luck Helps Stanford Tie It Up, 34-34 Heading Into Overtime

This game wasn't expected to be a blowout by any means, but the Pac-12 meeting between the Stanford Cardinal and the USC Trojans has turned into a legitimate dogfight.

The Trojans jumped out in front with a 28-yard Matt Barkley pass to Marqise Lee in the fourth quarter. The Cardinal answered that with a field goal to tie the game again at 27-27. Two minutes later, Andrew Luck shockingly threw a pick-six that was returned by Nickell Robey.

Luck was able to lead yet another Stanford drive that ended in a touchdown run from Stepfan Taylor with less than a minute left in regulation.

After some discussion that may have earned the Trojans another second of regulation time, the game is heading into overtime with the score knotted at 34-34. USC is hoping to pull off a huge upset and turn away the Cardinal with their first loss.
