Release:  10/08/2013

Kickoff – Cal at No. 11/13 UCLA (Sat., Oct. 12, 7:30 p.m. PT)
For the fourth time in its first six games, the Cal football team takes on a top-25 opponent this Saturday when the Golden Bears trek to Southern California to face No. 11/13 UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Saturday, Oct. 12 (7:30 p.m. PT). The game will be telecast on ESPN2 or fans can listen on KGO 810 AM or TuneIn. Last season the Bears enjoyed a 43-17 victory over the Bruins at Memorial Stadium, highlighted by Kameron Jackson’s three interceptions. Led by true freshman quarterback Jared Goff, who ranks third in the nation in passing yards (364.2 ypg), the Bears bring an offense to Pasadena this season that ranks 17th in the nation and fourth in the conference at 515.6 ypg to square off against a UCLA offense that is fourth nationally in total offense (561.8 ypg) and fifth in scoring (48.0 ppg) to rank second in the Pac-12 in both.

Quick Hitters
• In last Saturday’s contest against Washington State, Jared Goff set the Cal single-game passing record with 504 yards through the air, surpassing Pat Barnes’ 503 yards he garnered in a four-overtime win over Arizona in 1996. Goff also became the second quarterback in Pac-12 history to throw for 450 yards in three games. Goff owns three of the top four single-game passing performances in the history of the program in his first five games at Cal. He ranks third in the nation and second in the Pac-12 in passing yards per game (364.2 ypg).

• Like Goff, Chris Harper also placed his name in the record books against Washington State. He hauled in 14 receptions for 231 yards, including an 89-yard touchdown reception that was the second-longest pass play in school history. The receptions and yards both rank third in single-game school history. Harper became the fifth Cal receiver in school history to notch 200 yards receiving and the first since Geoff McArthur against Stanford in 2003. Harper ranks 14th in the nation and third in the Pac-12 in receiving yards per game (114.0 ypg). He is tied for 12th nationally and fourth in the Pac-12 in receptions per game (7.6 rpg).

• The record of the four teams that have defeated Cal is a combined 19-3 with Ohio State (6-0) and Oregon (5-0) still unbeaten. Cal’s schedule heading into the 2013 season was rated the third-toughest nationally according to Phil Steele.

• Cal has run at least 90 plays from scrimmage in all five games this season with a high of 99 in the season opener against Northwestern.

• The Bears have five starters from the team’s preseason depth chart currently out with injuries including four (Mustafa Jalil, Stefan McClure, Brennan Scarlett, Avery Sebastian) on the defensive side of the ball. Other defensive players listed on the team’s preseason depth chart that are out or have missed signifcant action due to injury include Nathan Broussard, Austin Clark, Nick Forbes, Alex Logan (retired) and Sione Sina. On the offensive side of the ball, Chris Adcock is out for the season.

Offensive Success
Cal ranks fourth in the nation in passing offense (402.6 ypg) and 17th in total offense (515.6 ypg) while ranking second in the conference in passing offense. Cal produced more than 500 yards of total offense in its first three games and again last Saturday against Washington State to make it four of five. Cal has also ran at least 90 plays from scrimmage in each of its first five contests. In the season opener against Northwestern, Cal posted 549 yards of total offense on 99 plays from scrimmage. In the Bears’ win against Portland State, Cal had a season-high 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. 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. Cal was limited to a season-low 325 yards of total offense at Oregon but still ran 95 plays from scrimmage against the Ducks. Against Washington State, Cal produced 585 yards of total offense, including a school-record 504 yards passing from Goff. One of Goff’s passes went for an 89-yard touchdown to Chris Harper, the second longest pass play in the history of the program.

New Marks Set in the Cal Record Book Last Week
Despite losing to Washington State, 44-22, the Cal offense had a record-setting day. Jared Goff passed for a school single-game record of 504 yards passing, eclipsing Pat Barnes’ 503 yards in a quadruple-overtime win against Arizona in 1996. Goff also became the second Pac-12 quarterback to throw for 450 yards in three games in his career (Andrew Walter, Arizona State, 2002). One of Goff’s touchdown passes went for 89 yards to Chris Harper. It was the second-longest pass play in school history. The longest pass play is 90 yards from Zach Maynard to Keenan Allen at Washington in 2011. Harper’s 14 receptions for 231 yards rank him third in each category on Cal’s single-game lists.

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 are currently ranked for those still remaining on the schedule in Stanford (No. 5/5), UCLA (No. 11/13) and Washington (No. 16/19). The current combined record of all of Cal’s ranked opponents is 29-2 with the three ranked teams they have played to this point 15-1. The Bears were also the only team in the nation who had seven teams on its schedule ranked in the preseason top 25.

Youthful Squad
Cal’s 2013 squad facing the nation’s third-toughest schedule 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 nationally according to Phil Steele’s combined experience chart. Ironically, head coach Sonny Dykes’ former school, Louisiana Tech, was the only team in the nation at the start of the season according to Steele with less experience than the Bears. Currently on the Cal depth chart, only three seniors are offensive or defensive starters (Mark Brazinski, Dan Camporeale, Deandre Coleman), while a combined nine freshmen (Michael Barton, Damariay Drew, Jared Goff, Kenny Lawler, Steven Moore, Khalfani Muhammad, Hardy Nickerson, Cameron Walker) and five sophomores (Chris Harper, Jalen Jefferson, Jordan Rigsbee, Freddie Tagaloa, Bryce Treggs) are listed as starters.

Goff One of the Top QBs in the Nation
Jared Goff ranks third in the nation in passing yards per game (364.2 ypg), fifth in total passing yards (1,821) and seventh in total offense (355.2 ypg). Goff has completed 139-of-234 passes (59.4%) with nine touchdowns and five interceptions for a 133.19 passer efficiency rating over his first five collegiate contests.

Against Washington State, Goff passed for a school single-game record of 504 yards passing, surpassing Pat Barnes’ 503 yards in a quadruple-overtime win against Arizona in 1996. Goff now owns three of the top four single-game passing performances in school history in his first five contests. Goff has also became the second Pac-12 quarterback to throw for 450 yards in three games in his career (Andrew Walter, Arizona State, 2002). One of Goff’s two touchdown passes against the Cougars went for 89 yards to Chris Harper. It was the second-longest pass play in school history.

Against Ohio State, Goff threw for 371 yards and notched a career-high three passing touchdowns. Goff has seven completions of 50 or more yards to five different receivers in the first five games, finding Richard Rodgers (75-yard TD, Portland State), Khalfani Muhammad (62 yards, Portland State), James Grisom (61-yard TD, Ohio State; 53-yard TD, Washington State), Chris Harper (89-yard TD, Washington State; 52-yard TD, Northwestern) and Bryce Treggs (50 yards, Portland State). He also scored a rushing touchdown against Portland State.

Harper and Treggs Create One-Two Punch
Sophomore wide receivers Chris Harper and Bryce Treggs have combined for 74 catches, 988 receiving yards and five touchdown receptions in the first five games. Harper leads the team with 38 receptions and career highs of 570 yards receiving and four scores. Treggs has already surpassed his number of catches from 2012 with 36 receptions for 418 yards and a touchdown.

Harper ranks third in the Pac-12 and 14th in the nation in receiving yards (114.0 ypg), as well as fourth in the Pac-12 and tied for 12th in the nation in receptions (7.6). Treggs ranks fifth in the Pac-12 and tied for 17th in the nation in receptions (7.2 rpg), as well as seventh in the Pac-12 and 39th in the nation in receiving yards (83.6 ypg).

Against Washington State, Harper posted career highs of 14 catches and 231 yards while adding a touchdown. The receptions and receiving yards rank third in each category on Cal’s single-game lists. He became the fifth Cal receiver to post 200 yards receiving, and the first since Geoff McArthur accomplished the feat against Stanford in 2003. One of Harper’s catches went for a 89-yard touchdown, the second-longest pass play in school history. Treggs added six catches for 70 yards to give the duo 20 catches for 301 yards, with the yardage total the second most by two Cal receivers in a single game. The record is 327 set by Wesley Walker (8-289) and Jesse Thompson (4-38) on Oct. 2, 1976, against San Jose State.

In the season opener against Northwestern, Treggs notched personal bests of 13 catches and a career-high 145 yards against the Wildcats. The 13 receptions ranks tied for fourth all-time in Cal single-game history. The record is 16 catches by McArthur in that 2003 game against Stanford. Combined with Harper’s 11 catches for 148 yards, their performances marked the 11th time in school history that Cal had two receivers go over 100 yards receiving in the same game. The 293 yards receiving by Harper and Treggs against Northwestern ranks tied for third on the school’s all-time list for yards receiving by two receivers in a game.

Treggs and Harper stormed onto the scene at Cal when both had a touchdown catch in their first collegiate games in the 2012 season-opener against Nevada.

Treggs And Harper On Biletnikoff Award Watch List
Bryce Treggs was one of nine receivers added Sept. 24 to the watch list for the 2013 Biletnikoff Award by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc., the creator and sponsor of the award presented annually to college football’s outstanding receiver. Treggs joined fellow Golden Bear wide receiver Chris Harper, who was announced on the preseason watch list in July. Fans can vote for Treggs and Harper online at BiletnikoffAward.com. Every fan can vote once daily on the Biletnikoff Award Fan Vote page. The aggregate tally will be counted as one official vote when semifinalists, finalists and the winner are selected.

Grisom is Three-For-Three
James Grisom has caught a touchdown reception in each of the last three games. His first touchdown catch came on a 61-yard strike from Jared Goff against Ohio State. He followed that with a seven-yard reception late in the fourth quarter at Oregon from Zach Kline. Against Washington State, Grisom hauled in a 53-yard score from Goff.

Grisom joined the Cal football program as a walk-on during the team’s 2012 spring practice after having been enrolled as a student at Cal since the August of 2010. He picked up a spot on the team, and at the end of training camp last August earned a scholarship. Like many of the Cal student-athletes, academics and other hobbies are important to Grisom. He also likes to compose music, which he ultimately hopes will be used in movies and video games in the future.

Muhammad An All-Around Threat
Khalfani Muhammad leads Cal, ranks ninth in the Pac-12 and 46th nationally with an average of 123.8 all-purpose yards per game. Muhammad had 495 all-purpose yards (99 rush, 117 receiving, 279 kick return) in his first four games before missing the team’s most recent contest against Washington State due to injury but is still third on the team in total all-purpose yards.

Muhammad has totaled team highs of 12 kick returns and 279 kick return yards with his average of 23.3 yards per kick return ranking third in the Pac-12 and 48th nationally.

Muhammad had team highs in all purpose-yards against Portland State (career-high 174), Northwestern (152) and Ohio State (142).

Muhammad had 13 rushes for 68 rushing yards as well as his first collegiate touchdown on a four-yard scoring run that capped Cal’s first drive of the game against Portland State, while half of his rushing yards came on a career-long 33-yarder. Muhammad also caught four passes for 85 yards, including a career-long 62-yarder, and added one kick return for 21 yards against the Vikings. All of his numbers other than kick returns were career highs. He had career highs of six kick returns for 126 yards in the season-opener against Northwestern.

D’Amato Leads Pac-12 In Field Goals Made
Vincenzo D’Amato is tied for fifth nationally and second in the Pac-12 in field goals made with an average of 2.2 per contest. D’Amato has made 11 of his 12 attempts to rank third in the conference in field goal percentage (91.7). He tied his career high with three makes in each of the first two games and added two more against Ohio State and Washington State. He also booted a season-high 46-yard field goal in the rain at Oregon. D’Amato is also tied for 33rd nationally and ninth in the Pac-12 (fifth among kickers) in scoring with an average of 9.4 points per game.

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.

Leininger Emerging As A Ray Guy Award Candidate
Cole Leininger is emerging as a candidate for the Ray Guy Award, ranking third in the Pac-12 and No. 39 nationally with a 42.4 yard punt average. Leininger’s number was called upon a lot against Oregon on Sept. 28, as he booted a career-high eight punts for an average of 38.8. His first punt of the season went for a career-long 70 yards against Northwestern, while he had a career-best average of 49.0 against Ohio State. Leininger was a third-team preseason All-Pac-12 choice of Phil Steele after a solid freshman season when he played in all 12 games and averaged 39.9 yards per punt.

The History of Memorial Stadium
Originally completed in November 1923, Memorial Stadium is dedicated to University of California, Berkeley students, alumni and other Californians who lost their lives in World War I. Cal boasts an all-time record of 320-221-16 (.589) at Memorial Stadium. The Bears have enjoyed 12 undefeated home campaigns, including three in the past decade (2004, 2006, 2008). Cal has twice won eight home games in a season (1924, 1938). Memorial Stadium is also home to one of the most memorable moments in college football history – “The Play” – Cal’s five-lateral kickoff return on the final play of the 1982 Big Game to beat Stanford.

Bears As the Best, Against The Best
In 2009, the Bears recorded back-to-back wins in consecutive weeks over nationally ranked teams for the first time since 1950, defeating No. 18 Arizona at Memorial Stadium before winning at No. 14 Stanford. Cal also had a 43-17 victory over then-No. 25 UCLA at Memorial Stadium in 2012 but after falling to then-No. 22 Northwestern in the 2013 season opener and later to No. 4/3 Ohio State and No. 2/2 Oregon, the Bears have lost 11 of their last 12 games to ranked teams. Cal was last ranked in 2010 after having been among the nation’s top 25 teams at one point in seven consecutive campaigns from 2004-10 and eight times in nine seasons from 2002-10. Since 2002, Cal is 15-8 when playing as a top-10 ranked team.
