Two long drives in the third quarter resulted in field goals by Cal Golden Bears kicker Vincenzo D'Amatoa and kept the game against the Washington Huskies within reach as Washington leads after three quarters, 14-13 at California Memorial Stadium.
The first made kick came from 23 yards and was following a seven-play, 65-yard drive that took three minutes, 20 seconds to complete. The second from 21 yards was the result of an exceptionally long 16-play, 90-yard drive that Cal failed to capitalize on with a touchdown and had to settle for three points instead.
The two field goals gave Cal a 13-7 lead through most of the quarter, but it was a 29-yard touchdown from Huskies quarterback Keith Price to Austin Seferian-Jenkins that put Washington back on top with just 41 seconds left in the quarter.
Cal quarterback Zach Maynard completed 14 for 27 passes for 159 yards and zero touchdowns and interceptions in the contest through three. The Golden Bears' lone TD came on a 14-yard run from freshman wide receiver Chris Harper.
