Just a little over nine minutes remained in a back-and-forth game between the Arizona Wildcats and the Stanford Cardinal. The home team trailed by 14 points, the largest margin for either team during the contest, played on Saturday at Stanford.
But, when you have Josh Nunes on your side, there’s no reason to panic.
The senior quarterback led Stanford to two fourth quarter touchdowns, scoring both himself on short runs to tie the game. In overtime, the Cardinal pulled out a 54-48 victory.
The Cardinal signal-caller completed 21 passes for 360 yards, including two touchdowns with no interceptions. He averaged 10.6 yards per attempt, and had scoring tosses of 11 and 12 yards. He had another rushing touchdown in the third quarter, giving him 393 total yards and responsibility for five scores.
For his performance, Nunes has been named the NRA/Lindy’s Gunslinger of the Week.
Throughout the 2012 season, the top passing performance in college football each week will be honored with this recognition from the National Rifle Association and Lindy’s Sports. At the end of the season, the NRA/Lindy’s National Gunslinger of the Year will be named.
