Following Cal's 21-3 loss to the Stanford Cardinal in the Big Game on Saturday in Berkeley, Golden Bears head coach Jeff Tedford is eager to move on and focus on his team's upcoming game against Utah, according to a report from the San Jose Mercury News.

The Bears offense was dreadful on Saturday. After rushing for 503 yards combined in the team's two games before facing Stanford, they could only muster a meager 3 yards on the ground against the Cardinal.

When asked about his offense's struggles, Tedford didn't really want to talk about it. He told the San Jose Mercury News:

"Spoke about this already. If we could move on to Utah that would be great. It puts a knot in my stomach to talk about last week."

Utah (2-5, 0-4 Pac-12) has lost four consecutive games, two to Top 25 teams, and have had little to hang their hat on in 2012 aside from a 24-21 upset of then-No. 25 BYU in Week 2.

The Bears (3-5, 2-3 Pac-12) have some stiff competition over the next four games, two of which are against Top-10-ranked Oregon and Oregon State, and with three wins needed to finish at 6-6 and be bowl eligible, they are facing a tough task.

Kickoff for Saturday's game is slated for 6:45 p.m. PT.
