Big Game blunder: Stanford beats Cal on blocked extra point in final minute
This is a tough way to lose a rivalry game.
Stanford defeated Cal 24-23 on Friday night after the Bears missed an extra point that would have tied the game with 58 seconds remaining.
Here’s the clip:

That’s junior defensive end Thomas Booker with the block.
Cal still had all three timeouts left, but Stanford was able to muster a first down on its ensuing drive to ice the game.
This was Cal’s problem all night long — special teams. The Bears also muffed a punt and had a field goal blocked at the end of the first half.
Stanford is now 1-2 on the season and has bragging rights against the Bears for the next year. Stanford also holds the all-time series record 60-44-10.
