BERKELEY – The final stats from the Cal-Washington State football game at Memorial Stadium on Saturday have been corrected. With the corrections, Cal quarterback Jared Goff’s passing yardage increased to a Cal single-game record 504 yards (33-of-59, 2 TD, 1 INT). Goff surpasses Pat Barnes, who had held the record since Nov. 2, 1996, when he passed for 503 yards in a four-overtime win vs. Arizona.
Chris Harper’s corrected receiving totals are now 14 receptions for 231 yards and a touchdown, with both the receptions and receiving yards third on Cal’s all-time single-game list.
The changes come due to one of two primary corrections made from the final stats distributed following the contest listed below.
*On the first play of Cal’s drive that began with 12:20 in third quarter the play was changed to a 15-yard pass completion from Goff to Harper. The play was originally credited as a 15-yard run for Harper but later ruled a forward pass.
*With 13:58 remaining in the second quarter, the credit for the safety has been changed from Deandre Coleman to “Team”. Coleman is still credited with a two-yard tackle for loss and tackle on the play.
