After all, Adams just led this offense to a single game school record of 777 yards. "We ran into a good slate of teams, but we need to play better and be better". "All their receivers can make plays and are scary, and so I think he's a fantastic player. It didn't have anything to do with the weather".
California and quarterback Jared Goff look to get untracked Saturday as the Golden Bears visit Oregon, which has re-entered the Pac-12 North race with back-to-back road victories. Cal is hoping to avoid that fate and also avoid a four-game losing streak.
"It's going to test our character". "We took three good punches in the face". How are we going to respond? "It's a three-week season", quarterback Jared Goff said.
"I think they made adjustments and we didn't adjust very well to them and it didn't go our way for the rest of the first half", Goff said.
"It's a three-week season now".
Royce Freeman had 29 carries for 180 yards as the Ducks (6-3, 4-2 Pac-12) held on to a slim shot at a place in the conference championship game with their third straight win. It was halftime and Oregon had rolled up over 400 yards of Offense on Cal. The Oregon Defense did their job and did it well in the first half allowing just over 100 yards through the air. A pass intended for Devon Allen was intercepted in the end zone ending the Ducks scoring threat and giving the ball back to Cal at the 25-yard line with a 7-0 lead.
It looked promising early for the Bears. Goff threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Stephen Alexander on third down to put the Bears ahead 7-0. "I give them a huge thanks, it was just something we haven't seen much of this season, the amount of holes that were open, just the variety of different run plays we were able to go out with today".
"If we want to go to a bowl game, we have to start winning", Goff said. "After that, it kind of stalled". The Bears' 12 interceptions are second-most in the conference, but they had none against UCLA or USC. Adams added a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Dwayne Stanford that gave the Ducks a 24-10 lead.
Other Cal players that were injured included safety Stefan McClure, cornerback Darius Allensworth, defensive end Todd Barr and, defensive tackles David Davis and Tony Mekari.
"It will be a significant injury report", Dykes said. "We left a lot of plays on the field (vs. ASU)". Oregon State has won each of the last six meetings in Berkeley including a 49-17 victory in 2013.
For the past few years, being an Oregon Duck football fan has been akin to attaching yourself to the rocket ship, rapidly ascending to exciting new heights you never thought possible. Cal would take the lead 10-0 on the Ducks. Adams left ASU dizzy with his scrambling ability and 315 passing yards with four touchdowns.
Then, unlike the slow and steady rain hitting Autzen Stadium, things quickly start to get out of hand.
The touchdown was just the momentum that the Oregon offense needed. The Ducks had 22 first downs. He ranks eighth nationally with 138.6 yards a game. Cal totaled 196 yards and 11 first downs in the half. Cal's defense forced Oregon to punt after three plays on its first possession, and the punt was blocked by sophomore Raymond Hudson.
