USC Trojans fans charged the field at the Los Angeles Coliseum after last night's 20-17 win over  Stanford.

The loss probably knocks the 4th-ranked Cardinals out of contention for a national title, and was USC's first win over Stanford in its last four games against the team. More than that, it was vindication for a team that's suffered some major setbacks over the season, including several humiliating losses early on and the sacking of coach Lane Kiffin midseason. 

But it was a last minute, 47-yard field goal that brought the crowd to a cheering frenzy.

From the ground: Rushing USC's field after beating Stanford

The Associated Press reports at least 3 people were hurt rush the field, but their injuries were all minor: 

USC spokesman Tim Tessalone says three fans were taken away. One fan had an injured leg, while another a blood pressure concern and a third had a medical issue related to diabetes.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Katherine Main says 10 people were taken to hospitals from the Coliseum on Saturday night — five during the game and five more after the game. She had no immediate details on the injuries or when they occurred, but said the injured were in fair condition.

Interim coach Ed Orgeron, who has led the Trojans to wins in five of their last six games, played down his role in the team's turnaround, telling the AP: 

"I don't know if I pulled them together. I think they just came together. The leadership of this program is really coming to the forefront."

The Trojans play the University of Colorado Buffaloes November 23 in Boulder, Co.
