BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Freshman quarterback Jared Goff passed for 485 yards and two touchdowns to give coach Sonny Dykes his first win at California while leading the Golden Bears to a 37-30 win over Portland State on Saturday.
Goff completed 31 of 58 attempts and was 19 yards shy of breaking the school's single-game passing record. He became the first Cal quarterback since 1996 to throw for 400 yards or more in back-to-back games.
The two teams combined for 1,169 yards of total offense and 54 first downs. There were 42 plays of 10 yards or more, including four that went 50 or longer.
DJ Adams rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns for Portland State (1-1).
Vincenzo D'Amato added two field goals for the Bears, who face four ranked teams over the next six weeks including back-to-back games against No. 3 Ohio State and No.2 Oregon.
