USC upsets 5th ranked Stanford

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Andre Heidari kicked a 47-yard field goal with 19 seconds to play, and Southern California's stalwart defense repeatedly came up big in a 20-17 victory over No. 5 Stanford on Saturday night.

Cody Kessler passed for 288 yards for the revitalized Trojans (8-3, 5-2 Pac-12), who earned their fifth win in six games under interim coach Ed Orgeron.

USC's remarkable defensive performance included two fourth-quarter interceptions against the powerful Cardinal (8-2, 6-2), who followed up last week's win over Oregon by getting knocked out of the national title chase and maybe the Rose Bowl race as well.

After the inconsistent Heidari's field goal and Stanford's final play, USC fans stormed the Coliseum field, where Stanford had won in its last three trips.
