STANFORD, Calif. (AP) When the game was on the line, Dorian Thompson-Robinson wasn't going to allow UCLA to lose.
Thompson threw a tiebreaking 75-yard TD pass early in the fourth quarter and came back from a banged-up shoulder to throw a clinching touchdown late that helped No. 24 UCLA spoil Stanford's return home with a 35-24 victory over the Cardinal on Saturday.
"The one thing I don't think gets mentioned enough with Dorian is how tough he is. He's been tough from the get-go," coach Chip Kelly said. "It's an underrated quality for a quarterback to be a tough guy. I think that was on display tonight. It's something that we've known for four years now. But I think he really showed that tonight."
