With just under two minutes left in the game, No. 3 ranked Oregon led Stanford by two touchdowns.

That’s when injured quarterback Tanner McKee and the Cardinal receivers took over.

Junior wide receiver Elijah Higgins caught a 2-yard scoring pass from McKee on an untimed play after regulation had ended due to a penalty against Oregon. That scored tied the game and sent it into overtime.

In the extra period, wide receiver John Humphreys’ 14-yard touchdown reception from McKee was the difference in Stanford’s 31-24 overtime win over the Ducks.

For the game, McKee threw for 230 yards and three touchdowns. Higgins caught six passes and Humphreys caught four.

Humphreys’ game-winner has been chosen as the U.S. Farm Raised Catfish “Catch of the Week.”

Remember … for the tailgate tent or the pre-game party, U. S. Farm-Raised Catfish is always “the winning catch.”

The Catfish Institute, or TCI, was formed in 1986 by catfish farmers and feed manufacturers to raise consumer awareness of the positive qualities of U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish. Since its formation, U.S. per capita consumption has more than doubled.

U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is a sustainable and environmentally friendly seafood product. The National Audubon Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Environmental Defense all recommend U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish as a safe environmental choice. To find out more, visit www.uscatfish.com.
