Cal Vs. Presbyterian Score: Bears Up Lead To 63-12 Behind Brendan Bigelow Kickoff Return

The second-string unit is in for the California Bears, and they're just bowling over the Presbyterian Blue Hose. Freshman Brendan Bigelow took the opening kickoff of the second half, and scorched the Blue Hose for an 88 yard touchdown return.

Allan Bridgford replaced Zach Maynard in the second half, and seemed unsteady on his first scoring drive. But Bridgford showed his potential with a nice 33 yard strike to Marvin Jones that put Cal in the red zone, and Covaughn Deboskie-Johnson punched it in on 4th and goal from the six. Bridgford found Keenan Allen on the subsequent drive for a 27 yard strike, and the Bears ran the ball with a combination of Deboskie-Johnson and Dasarte Yarnway the next 50 yards, with Yarnway punching it in from six yards out.

The Cal defense hasn't been significantly challenged. The Blue Hose have only two first downs to Cal's 28, and 17 total yards to 550 for the Bears. It has gone as expected.
