Liufau yells for facemask call while avoiding sack

It's not often you see a quarterback complain to a ref during the play.

Of the combined 25 penalties called Thursday night against UCLA and Colorado, this was by far the most entertaining. With a UCLA defender draped all over him, quarterback Sefo Liufau appealed to the referee to throw a flag for a facemask penalty  even pantomiming a facemask tug  before shaking free and completing a short pass. Liufau got the personal foul flag he wanted and, ultimately, the 20-10 win, keeping the Buffs atop the Pac-12 South.
