The California Golden Bears suffered a loss to the No. 12 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday afternoon, but the Golden Bears faithful weren't too displeased that their team dropped the seven-point decision. It should continue getting better, too, considering the Golden Bears shouldn't have to worry about injuries stemming from this weekend's road trip.
Neither team suffered any noticeable injuries on Saturday afternoon, meaning Cal only has to worry about injuries they've already been dealing with -- particularly tight end Richard Rodgers, offensive lineman Matt Summers-Gavin and linebacker Khairi Fortt, all of which missed Saturday's game but could return next week against the USC Trojans.
As far as Ohio State is concerned, they were without a pair of running backs on Saturday as Adam Homan and Carlos Hyde both watched from the sidelines whereas defensive lineman Michael Bennett also was inactive. The Buckeyes didn't report any new injuries, however, which bodes well for their future as well.
