Through the first half, the California Golden Bears are certainly looking focused and determined. They enter halftime without having allowed the Washington State Cougars to record a single score and hold a comfortable 23-0 lead.
Both of Cal's scores in the second quarter came in the final six minutes. C.J. Anderson had a five-yard touchdown run for Cal to end a drive of 9 plays for 71 yards. With under a minute left in the half, Giorgio Tavecchio (who earlier had an extra point attempt blocked by WSU) drilled a 43-yard field goal.
Cal defense has held Washington State to a paltry 55 total yards, and a stunning -15 rushing yards.
Quarterback Zach Maynard is helping lead the Cal offensive charge, with Isi Sofele close behind. Maynard has thrown for 106 yards with a touchdown. Sofele has reacked up 91 yards on 15 carries with a touchdown of his own.
The Golden Bears are firing on all cylinders, and hope to carry this momentum into the second quarter. They have not shown any signs of letting up so far.
