Oregon State game-winning 56-yard touchdown vs Stanford

One of the college football plays of the year came on the final game of Week 6 on Saturday night.

Trailing 27-22, Oregon State’s Tre’Shaun Harrison made an absolutely absurd catch on a Ben Gulbranson pass and took it to the house for a go-ahead 56-yard touchdown with 13 seconds remaining vs. Stanford.

Harrison made a leaping catch right at the helmet of a Stanford defender, landed on his feet and spun around, and then ran past another defender for a ridiculous touchdown.

On the next play from scrimmage, Oregon State’s Ryan Cooper Jr. intercepted Stanford quarterback Tanner McKee to lock up the victory for the Beavers. So, the Harrison touchdown served as the game-winner.


Now that’s some high-quality #Pac12AfterDark action.

Oregon State was out of timeouts and needed a touchdown with the five-point deficit, so it would’ve been very difficult to come back if Harrison didn’t turn that amazing catch into a touchdown.

And it was quite the comeback for the Beavers. Oregon State trailed 24-10 entering the fourth quarter, before outscoring Stanford 18-3.

Oregon State improves to 4-2 (1-2 in Pac-12 play), while Stanford falls to 1-4 (0-4 in Pac-12).
