Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona State blocked extra point attempts at the end of regulation and the second overtime, enhacing its bowl chances with an improbable 30-29 win over rival Arizona on Thursday night.

Arizona State (6-6, 4-5 Pac-10) rallied from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter and broke through for a blocked extra point with 27 seconds left in regulation to keep the score tied at 20-all.

Cameron Marshall scored on a 2-yard run in the second overtime and David Douglas of Arizona (7-5, 4-5) answered with a 9-yard touchdown run, but James Brooks leaped to block Alex Zendejas' extra point to send Arizona to its fourth straight defeat.

Thomas Weber kicked five field goals for Arizona State, which now must wait to see if the NCAA clears its bowl waiver after one of the wildest finishes in this heated rivalry.
