Sep 27, 2014 7:54 PM

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Jared Goff threw seven touchdown passes and California used a rare defensive stop and a 34-yard field goal in double overtime from James Langford to snap a 15-game Pac-12 losing streak by beating Colorado 59-56 on Saturday.

On a day that Goff and Sefo Liufau both threw seven touchdown passes and the teams combined for more than 1,200 yards offense it ended up being defense and the kicker that won the game for the Golden Bears (3-1, 1-1).

Colorado (2-3, 0-2) could not punch it in after having first-and-goal from the 2 to open the second overtime, as Cal stopped four straight running plays capped by Jalen Jefferson knocking Liufau for a 3-yard loss on fourth down from the 1.

Cal failed to get a first down on its possession and Langford came on and drilled the kick to give the Bears their first conference win since Oct. 13, 2012.
