Bears Visit Oregon in First Road Trip of 2013
Kickoff – Cal at Oregon (Sat., Sept. 28, 7:30 p.m. PT)
Coming off of a bye week, the Cal football team will face a top-five opponent for the second consecutive game. Two weeks after taking on No. 4/3 Ohio State, the Golden Bears will trek to Eugene, Ore. to face No. 2 Oregon at Autzen Stadium for its Pac-12 opener and first road game of the year. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. and will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks. While Cal leads the all-time series, 39-34-2, the Ducks have won the last four meetings with Cal winning only twice in Eugene in 13 trips since 1980, most recently with a 31-24 victory in 2007. Two high-octane offenses will be featured in the Saturday night tilt. Oregon currently ranks second in the nation in total offense (672.0 ypg), rushing offense (355.3 ypg) and scoring offense (61.3 ppg). Cal quarterback Jared Goff leads the nation in passing (435.3 ypg) and total offense (429.7 ypg), while Cal is second in passing offense (438.7 ypg). Oregon has scored at least 59 points in each of its first three games of the season, while the Bears have run at least 90 offensive plays from scrimmage in each of their first three contests. Goff’s top two targets – Bryce Treggs and Chris Harper – are both on the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award. Treggs is third in the Pac-12 and fifth nationally in receptions per game (9.3 rpg).
• Second-ranked Oregon is the third top-25 opponent that Cal will face in its first four games of the season. The Bears opened with No. 22 Northwestern and squared off against No. 4/3 Ohio State on Sept. 14.
• The current combined record of Cal’s first four oppoents is 14-1 with Northwestern (4-0), Ohio State (4-0) and Oregon (3-0) all unbeaten with the lone loss for Portland State (3-1) to Cal. The four teams have combined to average 48.7 points and 567.5 yards per game over those 15 contests. Cal’s schedule heading into the 2013 season was rated the third-toughest nationally according to Phil Steele.
• True freshman Jared Goff is the top quarterback in the country averaging 435.3 passing yards per game and 429.7 yards of total offense. He became the second Cal quarterback to throw for 400 yards in back-to-back games with his 485 passing yards against Portland State after throwing for 450 in the season opener against Northwestern. He threw for 371 yards and three touchdowns for the first time in his career against Ohio State.
• Two of Cal’s specialists – placekicker Vincenzo D’Amato and punter Cole Leininger – currently lead the Pac-12 in their respective categories and are canddiates for the Lou Groza Award and Ray Guy Award for the nation’s top placekicker and punter, respectively. D’Amato, who led the Pac-12 in kicking in 2012, is also tied for first in the nation, averaging 2.7 field goals per game. He has been good on eight of his first nine attempts this season, including a season-best 43-yarder against Ohio State. Leininger has a 43.9 yard average, had a career-long 70-yard punt against Northwestern among his four 50-yard punts and has placed four punts inside opponents’ 20-yard line thus far in 2013.
Cal ranks second in the nation in passing offense (438.7 ypg) and ninth in total offense (556.0 ypg) while leading the conference in passing offense. Cal has produced more than 500 yards of total offense and ran at least 90 plays from scrimmage in each of its first three games. In the season opener against Northwestern, Cal posted 548 yards of total offense on 99 plays from scrimmage. In the Bears’ first win of the season against Portland State, the Bears produced 616 offensive yards topped by Jared Goff’s 485 passing yards. Cal and Portland State combined for 1,169 total offensive yards to rank second all-time at Cal. Some of the big plays in the Portland State contest were a 75-yard touchdown pass from Goff to Richard Rodgers that was the longest from scrimmage since Zach Maynard and Keenan Allen connected for a school-record 90-yard touchdown reception at Washington in 2011. The Bears came up with 503 yards of total offense against Ohio State. Goff had another long touchdown pass against the Buckeyes when he connected with James Grisom for a 61-yard score. The touchdown pass was the first of a career-high three on the day for Goff.
In addition to leading the Pac-12 as a team in passing offense (438.7 ypg) and kickoff coverage (44.7 ypk), a number of individuals lead the Pac-12. Jared Goff is the leader in per-game passing (435.3), completions (34.3 cpg) and total offense (429.7). Goff has led the nation in passing through the first month, and currently owns the second and third highest single-game passing totals in school history. The other Pac-12 leaders are among the special teamers as Vincenzo D’Amato leads the conference in field goals (2.7 fgpg) and Cole Leininger is the Pac-12’s top punter (43.9 avg.). D’Amato, who is also first among Pac-12 kickers in scoring (11.7 ppg) and field goal percentage (88.9%, 8-9) as well as tied for first in PAT kicking percentage (1.000%, 11-11), is looking to repeat as the Pac-12 leader in kicking which would also be the third year in a row that a Cal kicker led the conference in that category after Giorgio Tavechio accomplished the feat in 2011.
Bears Face Third Toughest Schedule
With a docket that features eight teams that played in bowl games a year ago, Cal’s 2013 schedule ranked as the nation’s third-most difficult by Phil Steele and was No. 4 in the country according to Sporting News heading into the season. The 2012 bowl schools on the Bears’ slate are Arizona, Northwestern, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington. In addition, Ohio State was a perfect 12-0 last season but ineligible to go to the postseason. Six of Cal’s games in 2013 come against squads that were ranked at the time of the game in Northwestern (No. 22 AP/No. 22 USA Today) Ohio State (No. 4/3) and Oregon (No. 2/2) or currently ranked for those still remaining on the schedule in Stanford (No. 5 USA Today/No. 5 AP), UCLA (No. 13 AP/No. 14 USA Today) and Washington (No. 16 AP/No. 20 USA Today). The combined record of all of Cal’s ranked opponents is 20-0. The Bears were also the only team in the nation who had seven teams on its schedule ranked in the preseason top 25.
Cal’s 2013 squad is one of the nation’s youngest with a preseason experience rating that was No. 12 in the Pac-12 and No. 125 out of No. 126 teams according to Phil Steele’s combined experience chart. Ironically, head coach Sonny Dykes’ former school, Louisiana Tech, is the only team in the nation according to Steele with less experience than the Bears. Currently on the Cal depth chart, only four seniors are listed as starter (Jackson Bouza, Dan Camporeale, Deandre Coleman, Vincenzo D’Amato), while a combined 13 freshmen (Damariay Drew, Jared Goff, Steven Moore, Khalfani Muhammad, Hardy Nickerson) and sophomores (Stephen Anderson, Chris Harper, Jalen Jefferson, Cole Leininger, Stefan McClure, Jordan Rigsbee, Freddie Tagaloa, Bryce Treggs) are listed as starters.
Points Off of Turnovers
The Cal defense has caused six turnovers thus far and went on to score on three of the six ensuing drives after those turnovers. Cal has posted 17 points off of turnovers in total thus far.
Goff Leads Nation After First Four Weeks
Goff leads the nation in passing yards per game (435.33 ypg) and total offense (429.67 ypg), while ranking third nationally and pacing the Pac-12 in completions per game (34.33 cpg), as well fourth nationally and second in the conference in total passing yards (1,306). Goff has completed 103-of-168 passes (61.3%) with seven touchdowns and four interceptions for a 135.60 passer efficiency rating over his first three collegiate contests.
Goff became only the second Cal quarterback to throw for over 400 yards in back-to-back games with 450 in his first contest in the season opener against Northwestern and 485 in a victory over Portland State the following game. The two totals were the second and third-highest total passing yards in a single game at Cal and the two highest in non-overtime contests. Pat Barnes is the only other Cal quarterback to throw for 400 yards in back-to-back games, accomplishing the feat in 1996 and breaking the school record for the most passing yards in a game with 503 in a quadruple overtime victory over Arizona.
In his most recent contest against Ohio State, Goff threw for 371 yards and notched three passing touchdowns for the first time in his career. Goff has five completions of 50 or more yards to five different receivers in the first three games, finding Richard Rodgers (75-yard TD, Portland State), Khalfani Muhammad (62 yards, Portland State), James Grisom (61-yard TD, Ohio State), Chris Harper (52-yard TD, Northwestern) and Bryce Treggs (50 yards, Portland State). Goff has completed passes to a total of 14 different receivers. He also scored a rushing touchdown against Portland State.

With injuries to some of the key Cal defensive players from the 2012 season in Nick Forbes, Avery Sebastian, Brennan Scarlett and others keeping the defensive depth chart thin, other defenders for Cal have stepped up in the first three games of the season. Khairi Fortt is the team leader in tackles with 25 after notching a career-high 13 against Ohio State. He currently ranks fifth in the Pac-12 in tackles per game (8.3). His 2.5 tackles for loss tie him for the team lead with Jalen Jefferson. Hardy Nickerson is second on the club with 24 takedowns. Nickerson has posted a career-high-tying 11 tackles in the last two consecutive contests. Jefferson (23) and Stefan McClure (21) are third and fourth on the team in tackles.
In the secondary, Alex Logan and Kameron Jackson have each recorded interceptions thus far, along with Sebastian who is out for the rest of the year with an injury. The interception was the fourth of Jackson’s career after he notched three against UCLA last year that equaled the most by a Pac-12 player in 2012. McClure leads the secondary in tackles, tackles for loss (1.5) and pass breakups (2).
D’Amato Tied For National Lead In Field Goals Made
Vincenzo D’Amato is tied for first nationally in field goals made with an average of 2.7 per contest. D’Amato has been good on eight of his nine field goal attempts. He tied his career high with three makes in each of the first two games and added two more against Ohio State, including a season-high 43-yarder. He is also tied for 13th nationally in scoring with an average of 11.7 points per game, ranking first in the conference among kickers and fifth overall.
In addition, D’Amato threw his first career touchdown pass against Northwestern. On the opening drive of the season, Cal lined up for a field goal only to run a fake when holder Jackson Bouza flipped the ball back to D’Amato, who then passed it back to Bouza who ran in for the score to open the Sonny Dykes era. Those efforts helped Cal garner its first conference player of the week honors as D’Amato was named the Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week for the opening week of the season against Northwestern.
D’Amato was a preseason first-team All-Pac-12 choice of Lindy’s and Sporting News, a second-team selection according to Athlon and College Sports Madness, and a third-team pick by Phil Steele. D’Amato is also on the watch list for the College Football Performance Awards Placekicker Trophy, a candidate for the Lou Groza Award given to the nation’s top placekicker and was the No. 8 draft eligible placekicker in the nation prior to the season according to Phil Steele. He is also one of 30 final candidates for the prestigious Senior CLASS Award given to a player for notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
