Zane Gonzalez kicked a 36-yard field goal in overtime and No. 15 Arizona State overcame an uneven performance to take control of the Pac-12 South with a 19-16 victory over No. 18 Utah on Saturday night.

Utah (6-2, 3-1, No. 17 CFP) had the ball first in overtime and had to call a timeout just before Andy Phillips attempted a 35-yard field goal to avoid a delay penalty. Phillips pushed that attempt wide right and did the same thing when it counted.

Arizona State (7-1, 5-1 Pac-12, No. 14 CFP) managed just a couple of yards on its overtime drive, but Gonzalez made his kick count, driving the ball through the uprights to send the Sun Devils charging onto the field.

The victory, combined with Arizona's loss to UCLA, gives Arizona State a one-game lead in the Pac-12 South and keeps the Sun Devils' College Football Playoff hopes alive.
