The California Golden Bears are coming off a tough home loss to rival and 5th ranked USC, 30-20. The Bears made it close through the third quarter, but could never regain the lead.
The Oregon Ducks looked to be rising back to prominence in the PAC-12, but lost 37-35 on the road to the Arizona State Sun Devils. The Ducks gave up 17 points in the first quarter, and could never regain the lead.
California Golden Bears
California gave the Trojans all they could handle in last weeks 10 point home loss. The game was tied in the fourth quarter, then the Trojans outscored the Golden Bears when it counted for the win.
Golden Bears quarterback Ross Bowers was 22 of 50 for 303 yards passing, one touchdown and four interceptions. If it hadn’t been for Bowers ill-advised turnovers, the Bears could have pulled off the upset win.
Defensively the Golden Bears played well last week. Based on the eye test, the Golden Bears were solid against USC. The defensive unit allowed 356 total yards against a top five team.
The Oregon Ducks looked like they arrived in Arizona asleep off the bus. The Ducks fell behind ten points in the first quarter, and were never able to get back into a solid groove on offense in the loss.
The Ducks had 401 yards of total offense for the game. Quarterback Justin Herbert has to be better for the Ducks offensively. He was 19 of 35 for 281 yards and three touchdowns. Decent, but not good enough.
On defense, the Ducks allowed 489 yards of total offense against Arizona State. Hopefully the Ducks secondary will be aware of a turnover prone Ross Bowers this week.
