Bears Fall To Oregon State
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Freshman cornerback Jeremiah Earby scooped up a fumble and returned it 33 yards for a touchdown, but that was the only time the Cal football team found the end zone Saturday in a 38-10 setback against Oregon State.
Earby's TD with 2:33 remaining in the second quarter cut the Beavers' lead to 21-7 and gave the Bears a dose of momentum heading into halftime. But Oregon St. scored 10 unanswered points in the third quarter to put the game away.
Freshman kicker Michael Luckhurst attempted his first career field goal and converted from 36 yards away.
A week after scoring 35 points in a loss at USC, Cal (3-7, 1-6 Pac-12) was limited to 156 total yards and didn't score an offensive touchdown.
With the loss, the Bears were eliminated from bowl contention.
Sophomore Oluwafemi Oladejo led Cal's defensive effort with a career-high 13 tackles.
Saturday marked the Bears' final road game of the season. Cal has two games remaining, beginning with the 125th Big Game against Stanford next Saturday at 2:30 p.m. The game will air on the Pac-12 Network.
