The folks at SDCCU Stadium are taking the #PAC12AfterDark meme a bit too far.

The Stanford-San Diego State football game was under delay for about 20 minutes after the lights went out at SDCCU Stadium with 3:58 left in the fourth quarter. No one at the stadium seems to have any idea why the lights went out.

Stanford, ranked 19th in the nation, has a 17-13 lead over a San Diego State team that may sneak into the top-25 with a victory.

Update: The lights going out turned out to be San Diego State’s secret weapon! The Aztecs returned from the delay to score what would serve as the game-winning touchdown.
