Washington: Fifteen point lead with seven minutes left, win by one point and they had a shot for the win. USC: Fourteen point lead with eight minutes left, they not only won but got up to a double-digit lead. Arizona: Ten point lead with three minutes left, they had a three at the end to tie. SMU: Seven point lead with seven minutes left, lost. Stanford: Ten point lead with seven minutes left, sixteen point lead earlier in the half, won by one. Utah #1: Seven point lead with four minutes left, lost. WSU #2: Ten point lead with twelve minutes left, went to OT. Utah #2: Fourteen point lead with seven minutes left, lost. Penn State: Nine point lead with a minute and a half left, won by one. Kudos to the team for playing well earlier in these games and getting a lead, but still. There is a skill to closing out games; SDSU just had a streak of 164 straight wins when leading a game with five minutes left. In general regarding close games we've had fourteen games this year that came down to the final couple of possessions. Our record in those games is a solid 9-5. However shockingly given that record, in all of those games except for just one (Oregon) we were outplayed in the final minutes.
