Cal Vs. Ohio State Score Update: Golden Bears Trail 20-14 After Third Quarter

The California Golden Bears are hanging tough against the Ohio St. Buckeyes, trailing by a score of 20-14 after three quarters of play. It appears the Buckeyes were ready to blow the game wide open when leading 20-7 at half, but Cal's defense really stepped up in the third quarter to keep the deficit manageable.

An 81-yard touchdown rush from Brendan Bigelow was the lone score of the quarter. The Bears had a chance to convert a 42-yard field goal late, but it went wide left.

Zach Maynard has played very well thus far, completing 21 of his 29 passes for 242 yards and a touchdown. Isi Sofele has rushed for 68 yards on 17 attempts. Keenan Allen leads the California receivers with eight receptions and 76 yards.

Braxton Miller has been great for Ohio State, throwing for two touchdowns and rushing for another. The sophomore quarterback is 11-for-21 with 134 passing yards, as well as 58 rushing yards on eight attempts.

The fourth quarter is about to begin on ABC.
