Don’t know if you all noticed on the replay, but Kevin Riley already had his arms outstretched signaling touchdown while his pass to Cameron Morrah was still in flight. Of course, when you’re that wide open, it’s probably a pretty easy prediction to make.

Very important drive for Cal to answer there. Key play: The four-yard pass to Shane Vereen on 3rd-and-4. It was very close and the Bears may have enjoyed a generous spot.

Good playcalling as well on the drive. The Bears were running and doing the short stuff, and you just got the feeling they would go to play action and try to stretch the field at some point. That allowed Sean Young to get behind his defender to haul in his 42-yard catch that set up the score.
