Colorado Buffaloes fall to California Golden Bears in second overtime

The Colorado Buffaloes fell to the California Golden Bears 59-56 at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, California, Saturday afternoon.

After coming out of the gates, the Colorado Buffaloes were looking quite fervent. The team's quarterback Sefo Liufau hit tight end Sean Irwin up the field for a 22-yard touchdown pass, and the touchdown capped a seven-play, 56- yard drive, giving the team an early lead of 7-0 in the first.

The Colorado team was in command with 14-0 as 7:53-minute time was remaining in the initial quarter. But, the California team's quarterback Jared Goff finished off a 6-play, 63-yard drive with a five-yard touchdown pass to Lucus Gingold, bringing the team to within seven.

At the end of first quarter, Colorado was leading the Golden Bears with a score of 21-7.

In the second half, the Golden Bears scored 21-unanswered points, thanks to Jared Goff who gathered two touchdown passes. Colorado's Will Oliver missed three field goals.

Then, quarterback Sefo Liufau arranged a 10-play drive worth 76-yards, hitting Nelson Spruce on a 6-yard slate route, which provided the Buffaloes with a 42-35 lead as 3:16 minutes left in the ball game.

In overtime, Colorado won the coin toss and decided to start on defense. In the very first play, Liufau threw a deep ball to Spruce on the right side of the field, which resulted into tying of the ball game up at 56. But, the California team finally took over in the second overtime, and grabbed the victory.
