Cal shuts out USC at the Coleseum
This game was a lot easier than it probably should have been.
This game was too close for comfort, but Cal escapes with a win against 0-7 Washington State. The PAC 10 is down this year.
Michigan State 32
MSU came firing out of the box and scored a TD on their first drive with a 16 yard pass. Cal was able to respond with a TD of their own on their opening drive. Cal held MSU to a FG and was 10-7 MSU lead at the end of the first quarter.
The second quarter was decisive as Cal scored three TDs and MSU wasn't able to do anything offensively. The key play was an interception just before the half which Cal was able to convert into a TD and take a 28-10 lead into the half.
MSU would make a furious comeback in the 4th quarter, but there just wasn't enough time on the clock and Cal HB Leslie Holmes, in for the injured starter Moore, broke off a 66 yard run to ice the game.
It sucks that we had to play almost three quarters in two different games that were disconnected due to lag.
Good game, Chaotic. Maybe, see you next year in the Rose Bowl.
