Pledger, a transfer from Oklahoma who only had 11 yards coming into the game, ran 20 yards for a touchdown with 4:53 to play. “After the game, I was holding my daughter and had tears in my eyes.

Clark Phillips took an interception 54 yards for a score to clinch it with 2:19 remaining. The Cougars (1-3, 0-2 Pac-12) forced seven fumbles, recovering three, with at least two others
