Hutchinson Paces Cardinal Past Washington State, 33-17

Chad Hutchinson found Damon Dunn on a 58-yard touchdown pass early in the second half to lead Stanford to a 33-17 Pac-10 victory over Washington State.

Hutchinson completed 15-of-22 passes for 206 yards and an interception for the Cardinal (5-5, 4-3 Pac-10), who were down 14 points early in the second quarter. Stanford leads the all-time series 27-19-1 and has won the last five games.

Ryan Leaf passed for 250 yards and two interceptions, going 18-for-38 for Washington State (5-5, 3-4). Receiver David Knuff caught eight passes for 102 yards and a touchdown.

Leaf and Knuff opened the scoring with a 14-yard touchdown at 6:47 of the opening quarter. Michael Black's eight-yard scoring run made it 14-0 just over 2 1/2 minutes into the second period. Black rushed for 68 yards on 18 carries.

The Cardinal tied it 14-14 when Jonn Ritchie scampered three yards for a touchdown and Troy Walters returned a punt 75 yards for a score.

Washington State's Tony Truant and Stanford's Kevin Miller exchanged field goals after the Hutchinson-to-Dunn touchdown and Greg Comella added a one-yard scoring plunge. Jon Haskins caught Leaf in the end zone for a safety to close the scoring.
