California wide receiver Chase Lyman's 176 receiving yards was his career-high and is the 11th-highest single-game total in Bears history. Lyman's three touchdown catches tied the school's single-game record, last accomplished by Bobby Shaw in a triple-overtime win against Oregon State in 1996. Lyman's 79-yard touchdown catch from Aaron Rogers was the Bears' longest of the season and the 12th-longest pass play in Cal history, and it made Lyman the only player in Cal history to have at least two catches of 78 yards or more in his career.
Oregon State quarterback Derek Anderson's string of consecutive games with a touchdown pass ended at 22.
California's touchdown on its first drive of the game marked the first time an OSU opponent has scored on its first possession this season.
Oregon State running back Dwight Wright has had three runs of 45-plus yards this season.
The 21 points scored by Cal in the first quarter is the most scored against OSU in a quarter this season.
Cal's 21 first-quarter points are the most allowed by OSU in the first period of a game since Washington scored 21 on Nov. 6, 1992 at Husky Stadium in Seattle (a 132-game span).
aBeaver cornerback Aric Williams had his first multiple interception game of his career.
The 42-point margin of victory was California's largest over Oregon State since the Bears' 42-0 win in Berkeley in 1992.
The crowd of 36,003 was Oregon State's 25th consecutive sellout at Reser Stadium.
