Cal vs. Presbyterian Halftime Score Update: Golden Bears Up 42-12 Behind Three Zach Maynard Passing Scores

The California Golden Bears have put up some distance over the Presbyterian Blue Hose, mostly accomplishing it on offense through the air. After another three-and-out by Presbyterian early in the first quarter, the Bears drove downfield starting from their 45. Zach Maynard found Keenan Allen for seven yards and Anthony Miller for nine on a 4th down conversion before hooking up with Michael Calvin for 22 yards on a 3rd and 16. Isi Sofele punched it in from three yards out to make it 21-0.

Sean Cattouse logged his second interception on an overthrow by Presbyterian quarterback Ryan Singer. Maynard then found Marvin Jones on a post route (although it looked like Keenan Allen was the intended receiver), but it worked out as Jones went streaking 51 yards for the score to put the Bears up 28-0. Maynard would hook up with Spencer Hagan on a tight end seam route, then would find Keenan Allen up the middle to give Cal their final touchdown of the first half.

Presbyterian has gotten points on the board thanks to Blue Hose cornerback Justin Bethel. Bryan Anger saw his punt blocked byBethel off the right side, who then tracked the ball down and returned it for a touchdown. Bethel then undercut a short out route on a half-rollout by Maynard, and pick-sixed it for his second score of the game.  Presbyterian missed their first extra point and then failed to convert a two point conversion on the second touchdown.
