BOULDER, Colo.- Keenan Allen hauled in a 5-yard TD pass in overtime from his half brother, Zach Maynard, 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) near the goal line.

The catch by Allen came moments after Will Oliver connected on a 22-yard field goal in overtime for Colorado, his fourth of the game. Oliver also nailed 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. The speedy wideout grabbed two TD passes from Tyler Hansen, who finished with a team-record 474 yards passing.

The game won’t count in the Pac-12 Conference standings because it was scheduled as part of a home-and-home series before the Buffs bolted from the Big 12. But it may have just given the Buffs an early preview of what may be in store during league play.

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

Big tight end Anthony Miller caught two of Maynard’s four TD passes, and C.J. Anderson scored on a 19-yard scamper in the fourth quarter.

The victory was Jeff Tedford’s 74th as Cal coach, tying him with Andy Smith (1916-25) for most in school history.
