California beats Sacramento State 55-14

September 6, 2014

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Jared Goff matched his career high of four touchdown passes, backup Luke Rubenzer threw for one and ran for another, and California beat Sacramento State 55-14 on Saturday.

Kenny Lawler caught two touchdown passes form Goff - including a leaping one-handed grab - while Maurice Harris and Darius Powe also scored on touchdown receptions. Goff went 17 of 22 for 229 yards.

Daniel Lasco added a 50-yard scoring run as the Golden Bears (2-0) raced to a 42-0 lead midway through the second quarter then coasted to its most lopsided win since beating Presbyterian 63-12 in 2011.

It's the first time Cal has opened with back-to-back victories since winning its first three games in 2011. The Bears went 1-11 last year in coach Sonny Dykes' first season.

Cal also got a lift from its defense, which held Sacramento State (1-1) to minus-12 yards rushing in the first half.
