California beats Sacramento State 55-14
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.
