LOS ANGELES, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Andre Heidari kicked a 47-yard field goal with 19 seconds left Saturday, sending Southern California to a 20-17 upset over fifth-ranked Stanford.

The decisive boot was set up when Su'a Cravens picked off Cardinal quarterback Kevin Hogan with 3:02 remaining.

On the next play, Trojans quarterback Cody Kessler threw a long, incomplete pass to Marqise Lee, who was hurt on the play.

With 1:23 remaining, USC faced a fourth-and-2 at the Stanford 48-yard line and Coach Ed Orgeron elected to go for it, calling on Lee to re-enter the game.

Kessler hit him with 13-yard completion for a crucial first down.

Heidari followed with his field goal six plays later and USC (8-3, 5-2 Pac-12) had the upset win.

Kessler completed 25-of-37 passes for 288 yards with a touchdown.

Hogan went 14-of-25 for 127 yards and was intercepted twice for the Cardinal (8-2, 6-2).
