TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Javorius Allen ran for 205 yards and three touchdowns, and Southern California survived a last-second field goal try to knock off No. 10 Arizona 28-26 on Saturday night.

USC (4-2, 3-1 Pac-12) left the Coliseum defeated and deflated a week ago after losing to Arizona State on a Hail Mary. The Trojans were headed toward another stinging loss after Jared Baker scored on a 1-yard with 1:07 left and Caleb Jones recovered the onside kick.

With the crowd roaring for another improbable victory, the Wildcats came up short when Casey Skowron missed his third field goal of the night, a 36-yarder that sailed wide right with 17 seconds left.

Arizona (5-1, 2-1) struggled with red-zone issues in the first half before mounting their comeback. Baker scored all three of his touchdowns in the second half, but was stuffed by USC's Leonard Williams on the 2-point try before the final flurry.
