Washington Closes Season with Loss at Cal
Dec. 6, 2008
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- Washington conclude the 2008 campaign Saturday with a 48-7 loss at California.
Nate Longshore threw a touchdown pass in his final home game, and Cal's defense created four turnovers as the Golden Bears (8-4, 6-3) finished unbeaten in seven games at Memorial Stadium this season. With a fourth-place finish in the Pac-10, Cal is headed to its sixth straight bowl game under coach Jeff Tedford, likely the Emerald Bowl across the Bay on Dec. 27 against the Miami Hurricanes.
Taylor Bean passed for 80 yards and scored on a 2-yard run late in the third quarter for the Huskies. Bean got the first significant playing time of his career in relief of Ronnie Fouch, who started the Huskies' final eight games in place of injured Jake Locker.
