Stanford needed a little luck to remain undefeated in Pac-12 Conference play.
Cardinal kicker Conrad Ukropina hit a 19-yard field goal just after the two-minute warning, then Washington State’s Erik Powell missed from 43 yards as time expired as No. 8 Stanford held on for a 30-28 victory in Pullman, Wash.
Senior quarterback Kevin Hogan only threw for 86 yards but had 112 rushing yards on 14 carries and two touchdowns for Stanford (7-1, 6-0 Pac-12).
