Oregon vs. Cal 2012 score update: Bears trailing, 14-7, after 1st quarter

California's bid to play spoiler against Oregon began with a stumble as the Bears trail the Ducks 14-7 after the first quarter.

Oregon opened the scoring early in the game with a 57-yard touchdown drive following a Cal three-and-out to start the game, giving the Ducks a 7-0 lead thanks to Macus Mariota's 10-yard pass to Colt Lyerla. The Bears responded with a 71-yard drive to tie the game thanks to an Allan Bridgford 10-yard pass just under three minutes later.

The game would get chippy a few drives later when the Ducks appeared to have been stopped short on third down deep inside Cal territory. A personal foul against Cal gave Oregon another chance on the drive, with the Ducks scoring and taking the lead just four plays later after Byron Marshall's 3-yard touchdown run.

Oregon has outgained Cal 147-104 through the first quarter, with Cal quarterback Bridgford 3-of-5 for 39 yards and a touchdown so far in the game.
