WSU Vs. Cal Score Update: Cougars Yet To Score On Offense, Down 23-0 At Halftime

The Washington St. Cougars enter halftime with a large deficit against the Cal Golden Bears after only 38 total offensive yards in the first half. The Cougars have had trouble moving the chains and find themselves down 23-0.

The Cougars began the second quarter with possession and marched down to the Cal 35-yard line before a mix-up cost the Cougars a scoring chance on 4th-and-9.

Neither team had success on offense during the next two drives as the Golden Bears went three-and-out and the Cougars managed only 23 yards before being forced to punt. Cal received the ball after the punt at the Cal 29-yard line.

Cal's next possession looked very similar to the two drives in the first quarter that yielded points for the Golden Bears. Quarterback Zach Maynard found receivers and running back Isi Sefele routinely rushed up the Cougar defense for gains of seven-plus yards to keep the chains moving. C.J. Anderson scored Cal's third touchdown of the game with a five-yard carry into the endzone.

The inefficient offensive play of the Cougars continued with another three-and-out. Cal managed to tack on a few more points before the half, using a 43-yard field goal by Giorgio Tavecchio to take a commanding 23-0 lead into halftime.

The Cougars will need a momentous second quarter effort in order to turn this game around. Washington State has generated only 38 total yards of offense so far with only five first downs.

The Golden Bears will receive the kickoff to start the second half.
