Arizona Edges Cal, 10-9, With Late TD

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Nick Foles threw a 3-yard pass to Juron Criner with 1:11 to play for the game’s only touchdown and No. 14 Arizona escaped with a 10-9 victory over California in their Pac-10 opener on Saturday night.

The score was set up by Foles’ 51-yard pass to Criner, who had been questionable for the game because of a turf toe injury. Criner fought off California’s Darian Hagan to catch the 51-yarder.

The winning seven-play, 77-yard drive came after California’s Giorgio Tavecchhio missed a 40-yard field goal try with 2:37 to play.

Arizona clinched the victory when Kevin Riley’s pass bounced off the hands of Marvin Jones and was intercepted by Joseph Perkins. Perkins fumbled but Robert Golden recovered for Arizona to seal it.
