Hutchinson Rallies Cardinal By UCLA, 21-20

Chad Hutchinson hit Brian Manning with a 10-yard touchdown pass in the final minute to rally Stanford to a 21-20 victory over UCLA in a Pac-10 matchup.

Hutchinson, who completed 22 of 30 passes for 268 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, hit Manning on a fade pattern to the left corner to cap off a 10-play, 80-yard drive.

The victory snapped the Cardinal's (3-5, 2-3) three-game losing streak against UCLA. UCLA (4-4, 3-2) still leads the all-time series, 36-28-3.

Cade McNown had given the Bruins a 17-14 lead with 4:01 remaining when he found Keith Brown on a 37-yard scoring pass to put UCLA in front for the first time since Skip Hicks scored on a five-yard run at 8:31 of the opening quarter.

McNown, who completed 14 of 34 for 156 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions, rolled out under pressure and found Brown on the left sideline for the score.

Bjorn Merten, who earlier kicked a 27-yard field goal, then connected from 47 yards out to make it 20-14.

With Stanford trailing 7-0, the Cardinal rolled off 14 second-quarter points on a Mike Mitchell 10-yard scoring run and a Hutchinson to Troy Walters 50-yard touchdown pass. Walters caught eight passes for 144 yards.

Hicks rushed for 94 yards on 26 carries.
