Cal Falls Short Against UCLA 10/18/14

By: Jennie Vo

 

In an early game against UCLA at Kabam Stadium in Berkeley, California, the Cal Bears were set to face the UCLA Bruins from Southern California.

 

Cal had the first possession of the ball game and their first big play came Stephen Anderson (WR, 89) who caught the pass from Jared Goff (QB, 16) and ran for 39 yards; however, the Bears failed to capitalize on the play were forced to punt. In UCLA’s next possession, the Bruins inched their way to the end zone as Brett Hundley (QB, 17) completed a 16 yard pass to Paul Perkins (24, TB) for the game’s very first touchdown. This drive had the only score of the quarter, putting the Bruins up 7-0.

 

In the second quarter of action, UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley fumbled the ball, which was recovered by Cal’s Hardy Nickerson (MIKE, 47). This led to an 18 yard pass from Goff to Bryce Treggs (WR, 1) and a 3 yard rush from Daniel Lasco (RB, 2) to put the Bears on the board. In UCLA’s next possession, the Bear’s defense was able to stop the Bruins at Cal’s 19 yard line, forcing them Bruin kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn (PK, 15) to kick a field goal from the 37. This put UCLA up 10-7. Their lead was short lived as the Bears were able to recover another fumble from Bruin Paul Perkins (TB, 24). Cal’s Luke Rubenzer (QB, 8) then threw 7 yard touchdown catch to Chris Harper (WR, 6), making the score 14-10. The touchdowns didn’t end there, as UCLA was able to run the ball into the end zone with 2:50 left in the quarter, giving UCLA the lead, 17-14. After, the Bear’s were unable to score and  were forced to punt; UCLA was able to score… again. Hundley pass completed to Perkins for 49 yards, ending the first half 24-14 (UCLA lead).

 

After the amazing halftime performance from the Cal and UCLA bands, the Bear’s offense came out aggressive as Goff completed a 49 yard pass to Kenny Lawler (WR, 4). Lasco then rushed for 2 yards into the end zone giving shortening UCLA’s lead 24. On that drive, Cal was able to score in 46 seconds. In the very next drive by UCLA, Cal’s defense was able to stop them short of a touchdown, forcing the Bruin’s to kick another field goal - pulling UCLA’s lead 27-21. Cal was able to turn defense into offense as Goff threw a 24 yard touchdown pass to Trevor Davis (WR, 9), which gave the Bears a 28-27 lead over the Bruins. However, UCLA did not give up as Hundley rushed for 15 yards into the end zone. UCLA then failed for the 2-point conversion. UCLA led 33-28 by the end of the 3rd quarter.

 

In the fourth, both teams battled hard until the final minute. Cameron Walker (CB, 3) from Cal intercepted Hundley and runs for 34 yards. Goff then threw to Lawler for 34 yards into the end zone; Cal, however, failed to convert a 2-point conversion. The score was 34-33. Cal’s defense, again, was able to stop UCLA’s next drive at the 8 yard line, forcing them to kick a field goal, giving UCLA the lead, 36-34. In the kickoff return, Trevor Davis from Cal suffered from a knee to the helmet and had to be carted off the field. Then, Cal was able to convert a 4th down into a 1st; however, their drive fell short as Goff’s pass was intercepted by Marcus Rios (DB, 9) at Cal’s 1 yard line. This play ended ballgame, giving UCLA a 36-34 victory.

 

Cal’s next game is October 24 against the Oregon Ducks at Levi’s Stadium.
