Football: Statistical fix gives Goff single-game passing record with 504 yards

A statistical correction from Saturday’s Cal-Washington State game resulted in freshman Jared Goff setting a single-game passing school record with 504 yards.

Goff originally was credited with 489 yards, but a play that was initially called a run by Chris Harper has been changed to a 15-yard pass completion.

As a result, Goff broke by 1 yard the record of 503 yards set by Pat Barnes in a four-overtime game against Arizona in 1996. Goff was 33 for 59 with two touchdowns and an interception.

Harper’s updated stats are 14 receptions for 231 yards. Both of those figures rank third on Cal’s single-game list.
