SALT LAKE CITY (AP)
Coleman Petersen missed a 48-yard field goal try with two seconds remaining as Colorado escaped with a 17-14 victory over Utah on Friday, ending the Utes' hopes for a Pac-12 South title and halting the Buffaloes' school-record 23-game road losing streak.
Petersen missed all three attempts after entering the contest leading the Pac-12 in field goals made with 17. With the loss by Utah (7-5, 4-5), UCLA will represent the South in the inaugural Pac-12 championship game.
Tyler Hansen passed for 264 yards and a touchdown to lead Colorado (3-10, 2-8), which won outside its home state for the first time since Oct. 27, 2007, when the Buffs beat Texas Tech 31-26.
Colorado dominated from the start. At halftime, the Buffs led 10-0 and held a 254-39 total-yardage advantage and 11 1/2-minute edge in time of possession.
Utah running back John White left the game in the third quarter with a left ankle injury. He carried 10 times for 28 yards.
