Allen's TD lifts Cal to 36-33 OT win over Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Keenan Allen hauled in a 5-yard TD pass from Zach Maynard in overtime, lifting California to a thrilling 36-33 win over Colorado on Saturday despite a record-setting offensive day by the Buffaloes.

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 non-conference victory for Cal, as the schools scheduled the game before Colorado joined the Pac-12.

Will Oliver connected on a 22-yard field goal in overtime after hitting a 32-yarder with 30 seconds remaining to extend the game for the Buffaloes (0-2).

Paul Richardson caught 11 passes for a school-record 284 yards to help Colorado rally from a 10-point deficit in the second half. Richardson grabbed two TD passes from Tyler Hansen, who finished with a team-record 474 yards passing.

Cal, making its first trip to Folsom Field since 1982, was outgained 582-370.
