CORVALLIS -- So close. It looked like the Oregon State Beavers were going to grab their second win of the season against No. 20 Stanford at home, but they couldn't hold on in the closing seconds.

The game went back and forth for most of the night and the Beavers had a 14-9 lead late in the fourth quarter. With 2:24 remaining and the clock winding down, star running back Ryan Nall fumbled and the Cardinal recovered.

They moved down the field, converting on fourth down once and third down once. The Cardinal capped the drive off with a 3-yard touchdown strike from Keller Chryst to J.J. Arcega-Whiteside with 20 seconds left in the game. Stanford went for two to go up by a field goal, but didn't convert, which gave them a 15-14 lead they hung onto.

It is the best effort the Beavers have given all year long, but it was helped by the fact Stanford was without star running back Bryce Love, who sat out with an ankle injury.

Cory Hall and Co. go back to the drawing board as they now have a week and a half to prepare for a trip to Cal, where they will try to win their second game in nine tries.
