The California Golden Bears hosted their Pac-12 rivals the Washington State Cougars on Saturday night, and it was fair to call it something of a lopsided game. Everything appeared to go Cal's way and the Cougars couldn't seem to buy a break. A huge first half was all the scoring that Cal would prove to need, as they locked up a 30-7 victory. The Golden Bears improved to 5-4 as the Cougars dropped to a woeful 3-6 (1-5 in Pac-12 play).
The Cougars were kept off the board entirely until the fourth quarter of the game, when Rickey Galvin managed to get a 5 yard touchdown run. If Cal hadn't fumbled the ball at the edge of their own red zone, it's unlikely that WSU would have scored at all in this one.
It was a lackluster game for quarterback Marshall Lobbestael as well. Although he threw for 155 yards, it seemed like he was throwing an incomplete pass at every crucial moment. He finished the game having completed on only 15 of 37 pass attempts.
The Cougars will be slinking off to lick their wounds after this one, as it was a humiliating defeat where they looked completely punchless on both sides of the ball.
