With their Pac-12 title and possible College Football Playoff hopes on the line, the Utah Utes were able to pull off a major upset against USC.

The No. 14 Utes pulled what looked like a reverse USC, as they led by as many as 14 but ended up giving up a lead late. However, as he does every time he plays in Los Angeles, Bryson Barnes was playing the game of his life.

Following a touchdown run by Caleb Williams to give USC a 32-31 lead with less than two minutes, Barnes was able to lead the Utes down the field, which was capped off by a heroic run on 2nd-and-15 with 16 seconds remaining.

With just three seconds left in the game, Utah kicker Cole Becker drilled the game winner, giving Utah the 34-32 win.

With the win, Utah's postseason aspirations are well-and-alive. Barnes finished the day 14-of-23 with 235 yards and three passing touchdowns, and also added a rushing touchdown.
