Washington State is unranked and looking for their first Pac-12 victory. Standing in their way are the high-flying Cal Bears. Cal is coming off an upset victory over the UCLA Bruins. WSU is coming off their third loss in as many games, and are close to their fourth. The Cougars are down at the half, 14-3.
Wazzou starting quarterback Connor Halliday didn't last through the first quarter. After going 3-of-9 with two interceptions, he was pulled from the game. Jeff Tuel replaced Halliday. He has yet to throw a pass for a touchdown, but he managed to keep the ball out of the other team's hands.
Cal quarterback Zach Maynard threw for 75 yards. Of those 75, 69 yards belonged to a Keenan Allen reception for a touchdown. Maynard threw one interception, but Washington State failed to convert on the opportunity. In the second quarter, Maynard handed off the ball to leading rusher C.J. Anderson for a four-yard touchdown.
