The California Golden Bears were hoping for a win over the visiting Oregon State Beavers in order to attain bowl eligibility. They succeeded admirably with a relatively easy 23-6 win at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Saturday night.
There were two big stars for Cal in the game. The first was the Golden Bears defense, which held the Beavers to just two first-half field goals on the evening, and limited the Oregon State running game to just 27 total rushing yards. They also recovered a fumble and grabbed two interceptions.
The other star for Cal was running back Isi Sofele, who racked up 190 yards on 23 carries, with a long of 56 and a 20 yard touchdown in the third quarter. Quarterback Zach Maynard was responsible for the other two Cal touchdowns in the game. In the first quarter, he threw a 19 yard pass to Michael Calvin. He added a 5 yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter.
