Football: Cal-Oregon game thread

FINAL SCORE: Oregon 55, Cal 16. Click here for my final game story.

END OF 3RD QTR: Oregon leads 55-10. Cal is saying that Khalfani Muhammad left the game with a head injury and Kameron Jackson suffered an injury to his lower leg. No other details, including their status for next week.

Cal also confirmed that Goff was not removed from the game because of an injury.

BTW: Oregon’s 55 points through three quarters is not the most the Ducks have scored against Cal. That was 59 — last year.

My apologies for not providing more details of this train wreck while battling deadline issues brought on by the late start.

END OF 1ST QTR: Oregon 27-0. Cal four lost fumbles, two of them by Jared Goff, who is replaced at QB by Zach Kline. Kline completes 1st three attempts for 58 yards, then is intercepted in end zone on an apparent miscommunication with WR Bryce McGovern. Cal outgained just 205-91 in the quarter, but four TOs were too much. Goff was 3 for 6 for 11 yards and 2 lost fumbles when he came out. Khalfani Muhammad and Kameron Jackson both injured and have not returned.

WELCOME: Arrived here at Autzen Stadium at 4:30 p.m., after driving 2 hours from Portland, and the rain and wind were minimal.

But it doesn’t look like that’s going to last. Very cloudy here and the bad weather is on its way.

The Bears and Ducks are on the field, beginning warmups. Will keep you posted as things evolve here.

 CAPTAINS: Senior DE Dan Camporeale was named a game captain for tonigiht to go with the Bears’ four season captains: Freddie Tagaloa, Jackson Bouza, Stefan McClure and Deandre Coleman.

CAL WINS the coin toss . . . defers to get the ball in the second half.
