Revenge of “The Play” by Tim Howey | Aug 27, 2007 | Sports | 2 comments I only have one thing to say about "The Play" that was catastrophically-blown by the officials… I was present at "The Revenge of the Play"… November 17, 1990 – Revenge of "The Play" — Stanford scores nine points in the final 12 seconds to win 27-25. Ed McCaffrey’s touchdown catch cuts the deficit to one. After a failed two-point attempt, the Cardinal needed a prayer. A recovered onside kick, a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty on Cal and a 39-yard field goal later that prayer was answered. 🙂 Tim Howey (Stanford ’91) 2 Comments Debbie Christensen on August 27, 2007 at 11:11 pm The same Ed McCaffrey from the Denver Broncos?? I used to be a HUGE Denver fan. Tim Howey on August 28, 2007 at 6:56 am You’re right Debbie.
