Miller Boots Oregon With OT Field Goal, 27-24

Kevin Miller kicked a 26-yard field goal in overtime to lift Stanford to a 27-24 victory over Oregon in a Pac-10 Conference game.

Orgeon had the first overtime possession but Stanford defensive end Kailee Wong stripped the ball from quarterback Tony Graziani and defensive tackle Carl Hansen recovered it.

Stanford (2-3, 1-1 Pac-10) took over at the Oregon 25-yard line and Mike Mitchell rushed twice for 11 yards and a first down. The Cardinal ran three plays to the Oregon 11 and Miller kicked the game-winner on 4th-and-5.

Stanford, which had lost consecutive road games to Wisconsin and Washington, leads the all-time series with Oregon, 41-20-1.

Oregon (3-4, 0-4) has lost four straight games.

Mike Mitchell's six-yard run gave the Cardinal a 7-0 lead just under three minutes into the game. He carried 20 times for 121 yards.

Saladin McCullough's three-yard run tied the score with 9:23 left in the first. Joshua Smith kicked a 19-yard field goal to cap a 17-play, 97-yard drive and give the Ducks a 10-7 lead with 8:25 left in the second.

Graziani hooked up with Damon Griffin on a 50-yard scoring pass, giving Oregon a 17-7 lead just 1:15 into the third. Graziani was 16-of-32 for 254 yards and Griffin caught two passes for 73 yards.

Mitchell ran 42 yards for a score to pull the Cardinal within 17-14 just over five minutes into the fourth, but Pat Johnson ran back the ensuing kickoff 95 yards to give the Ducks a 24-14 cushion.

Chad Hutchinson found Damon Dunn with a 27-yard scoring pass, pulling the Cardinal within 24-21 with 8:02 to go in the fourth. Hutchinson was 27-of-41 for 365 yards and Dunn had eight catches for 115 yards.

Miller kicked a 25-yarder with 50 seconds left in regulation.
