This game was anything but pretty. Coming into this weekend, both Cal and Washington State were 2-4. Last weekend, Cal upset UCLA and were hoping to ride that momentum into Washington. While it wasn't a commanding win, Cal earned their second straight victory within the Pac-12, 31-17.
In the first quarter, Cal quarterback Zach Maynard completed a pass to Keenan Allen putting the Bears up, 7-0. After they scored the first points of the game and were up on Wazzu, Cal never looked back.
Washington State starting quarterback Connor Halliday wouldn't make it out of the first quarter. After throwing two interceptions, Halliday would be pulled in favor of backup Jeff Tuel. Tuel threw to the right team the rest of the game and scored two touchdowns in the Cougars attempt to catch up to Cal. He might have not had any interceptions, but Tuel had four rushes for a -24 yards.
After Saturday's game, Wazzu has now lost four straight games and is 0-4 in Pac-12 play. Head coach Mike Leach and his crew have their bye-week coming up to attempt to work out the multiple issues.
