Video: Arizona Knocks Off Cal On Ridiculous Hail Mary

There were a number of great college football games Saturday, but it's likely that most fans missed the most entertaining of all. Arizona vs. Cal, which kicked off at 10:30 PM EST, saw 94 points and over 1200 yards of offense out in Tuscon. And the way the contest ended will be talked about for quite some time.

Arizona, trailing 31-13 to start the fourth quarter, mounted a furious comeback, ripping off 30 points in 13 minutes to put itself in position for some last-minute magic. After Cal's James Langford missed a field goal with 52 seconds to play, the Wildcats trailed 45-43 and began their final possession on their own 30-yard-line. Quarterback Anu Solomon, who threw for 520 yards and five touchdowns on the day, drove his team all the way to the Golden Bears' 47-yard-line with four seconds remaining. The rest, as they say, is history.

The heave was caught by running back Austin Hill, who began the wild celebration. It was an absolute heartbreaker for Cal, which wound up giving up 36 points in the game's final period. Arizona, somehow, is now 4-0.
