Stewart’s TD helps Stanford complete comeback vs. Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz. — Jeremy Stewart scored on a 1-yard run midway through the fourth quarter as Stanford rallied for a 21-20 victory over Arizona on Saturday.

It was the second Pac-10 road victory in two tries for the Cardinal (3-4, 2-3 Pac-10), which upset then-No. 2 Southern California in Los Angeles two weeks ago.

Stanford sophomore quarterback Tavita Pritchard improved to 2-1 as a starter, with both wins coming on the road. Pritchard was 19 of 27 for 181 yards and a touchdown, with two interceptions.

Arizona (2-6, 1-4) lost for the fifth time in six weeks. Coach Mike Stoops fell to 9-21 in Pac-10 play.

The Cardinal thwarted Arizona’s final threat when cornerback Nick Sanchez forced receiver Anthony Johnson to fumble, and Will Powers recovered at the Arizona 22 with 2:13 to play.

Wildcats linebacker Spencer Larsen intercepted a pass and forced a fumble, and Nate Ness also had an interception for Arizona, which limited Stanford to 277 total yards.

Arizona quarterback Willie Tuitama went 28 of 41 for 238 yards and a touchdown, with one interception. Jason Bondzio kicked two field goals, including a career-long 49-yarder.

Stanford tailback Jason Evans rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown as a replacement for Anthony Kimble, who has a shoulder injury.

Arizona took a 10-0 lead early in the second quarter on a 21-yard reverse by Mike Thomas, who jogged into the end zone.

The Cardinal cut the score to 10-7 on a 33-yard pass from Pritchard to Richard Sherman midway through the second quarter.
