Obviously, the first two possessions weren’t the finest hour for Cal’s defense. The Bears were absolutely abused up front and made Louis Rankin look like a Heisman Trophy candidate. You may have noticed that at the start of Washington’s second possession, the Bears had an entire new defensive line. That didn’t seem to make much of a difference. Halfway through the drive, the starters were back on the field. But a nice job by the defense to force a three-and-out immediately after Cal’s first touchdown.
The replacement defensive line included Michael Costanzo at tackle. Off the top of my head, I am not sure if he had played all season.
