Welcome to conference football, folks. In a mere four Pac-12 league games in 2014, we’ve had (a) an athletic director jog down from the press box to the sideline to argue officiating; (b) a comeback from a 22-point halftime deficit to win on a Hail Mary; and (c) a sizzling matchup in which a favorite for the first college playoff gets extended by a team that hasn’t had a winning season in 11 years. Whew.

After a costly turnover in the fourth quarter, Halliday ran over to the offending receiver but did not express his frustration. Instead, he gave him a high-five and a smile.
