Matt Kalil blocked Utah’s 41-yard field-goal attempt on the final play and Torin Harris returned it for a touchdown that wasn’t counted until two hours after the game ended in Southern California’s wacky 23-14 victory Saturday night in the first game in Pac-12 history.
Matt Barkley passed for 264 yards for the Trojans (2-0, 1-0), but they couldn’t celebrate until Kalil swatted down Coleman Petersen’s final kick after the Utes (1-1, 0-1) drove into field-goal range from their 33 in the final 1:01.
Harris returned the kick into the Utah end zone, but the officials appeared to rule the touchdown didn’t count because of an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty when much of the USC bench ran onto the field to celebrate.
Long after the Coliseum had emptied, Pac-12 officials announced Harris had scored after all.
California 36, Colorado 33 (OT): Keenan Allen hauled in a 5-yard TD pass from Zach Maynard in overtime, lifting the Bears to a thrilling win over the Buffaloes in Boulder, Colo.
Maynard lofted a pass into the corner for Allen, who easily beat Colorado defensive back Parker Orms to set off a wild celebration by the Bears (2-0).
It counts as a nonconference victory for Cal, as the schools scheduled the game before Colorado (0-2) joined the Pac-12.
