Josh Nunes led Stanford to a huge comeback against Arizona in a 54-48 victory, as Matt Scott threw a critical interception for the Wildcats and Stepfan Taylor clinched it for the Cardinal in overtime.

The Stanford Cardinal survived a wild offensive affair in the Farm with the Arizona Wildcats. Here are the video highlights that showcase the plays in their big comeback.

It didn't look like Stanford was in good shape early on in the 4th quarter when they fell behind 48-34 after Matt Scott found Terrence Miller for a nine yard touchdown. But the maligned Josh Nunes rallied Stanford, taking them down the field on two crucial drives. After a great Ty Montgomery kickoff return, Nunes marched Stanford 60 yards down the field and rushed it for a one yard score, and then Nunes took Stanford down the field 84 yards in four and a half minutes to tie the game on another rushing score.

Arizona ran out the clock and played for overtime instead of trying for the win, and it cost them. Chase Thomas picked off Scott's 69th pass attempt on the game, and Stepfan Taylor then clinched the game two plays later on a 22 yard scamper into the end zone.
