Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
Both the Cal Golden Bears and the Arizona State Sun Devils managed to escape from Saturday's game relatively injury free.
The Cal Golden Bears fell to 1-4 on Saturday after losing to the Arizona State Sun Devils, 27-17.
But if there's one positive to be taken from the game, it's that neither team sustained any major injuries before the fourth quarter came to a close. The Bears will next take on the UCLA Bruins on Saturday, Oct. 6, with a relatively clean bill of health.
Even still, Cal fans aren't happy following a third straight defeat by the Golden Bears. It's Cal's worst start since the 2001 season and has head coach Jeff Tedford firmly on the hot seat. His team was booed off the field following the loss.
Cal recovered from an early 7-0 first quarter deficit to tie things up early in the second. ASU put up 13 unanswered points, but the Golden Bears fought back to pull within 20-17 in the fourth quarter. A Kevin Ozier touchdown pass midway through the final quarter was enough to put the game out of reach for the Golden Bears.
