That one sucks. A block in the back penalty ultimately called back an incredible individual effort in what would have absolutely been a top-10 level play for California Golden Bears WR Nikko Remigio.

Remigio fielded a punt in the first quarter against the Oregon State Beavers and made the most of his opportunity, juking and cutting his way to an incredible 89-yard punt return touchdown. However, it was called back after a block in the back, and pinned the Cal offense back inside their own 10.

The Cal Bears head to the second quarter, trailing 14-7 to Oregon State.
