California Vs. Colorado Final Score, Overtime: Bears Eke Out Win Over Buffs In Extra Period

California's 36-33 overtime win over Colorado doesn't count as a Pac-12 win this year. But the Bears' close call in Boulder will have Cal on alert for when it does.

A late Colorado field goal pushed the game into overtime, tied at 30, and another three-pointer from Buffaloes kicker Will Oliver forced Cal to score or lose in the second possession of the first overtime. Keenan Allen came through with a touchdown on a five-yard pass from Zach Maynard, giving the Bears a win and pushing their record on the season to 2-0.

Colorado got back into the game, which it trailed 16-6 at halftime, with a passing game that put up 474 yards, all from the arm of Tyler Hansen. But miserable play in the most critical moments — the Buffs were 6-for-17 on third down — and miscues aplenty (12 penalties for 98 yards) doomed Colorado in the end.
