Some nutty numbers off Cal’s 59-56 double-OT win over Colorado:
– Jared Goff’s seven touchdown passes is the second-most in Cal history, behind Pat Barnes’ record of eight in a 56-55 four-overtime win over Arizona in 1996.
– The combined 14 TD passes by Goff and Colorado’s Sefo Luifau set a Pac-12 record.
– Goff passed for 449 yards, the fourth-highest total of his career. He now holds four of the top five spots on Cal’s single-game list.
– His 35 career TD passes ties him for No. 8 on Cal’s career list . . . in just 16 games. The record, FYI, is 64, held by Kyle Boller (1999-2002).
– Goff has thrown 17 touchdown passes this season — tied for second-best in the nation. He needs 14 more to equal Barnes’ single-season record of 31 set in 1996.
– Goff has climbed to No. 5 nationally in pass efficiency at 190.2. A 17 to 3 TD to INT ratio will do that.
– The Bears’ game next Saturday at Washington State will feature two of the most prolific passers in the country. WSU’s Connor Halliday threw four Saturday in a win at Utah and has an NCAA-best 20 for the season.
– Cal is averaging 17.1 yards per completion, a far cry from last year’s dink-and-dunk offense where that number was 10.8 yards.
– The Bears have scored 159 points the past three games, more than in any three-game since span putting up 169 in 1922 in wins over Washington State (61-0), Washington (45-7) and Nevada (61-0).
– Daniel Lasco had 200 yards rushing (108) and receiving (92) and now has 347 rushing yards over four games, averaging 6.3 per attempt. Click here to see Lasco’s school-record 92-yard TD reception, during which he eluded several CU defenders, then leveled one to break into the open.
– Nine different Cal players have caught touchdowns this season, led by Kenny Lawler, who had two vs. CU and five for the season.
– Penalties continue to be a problem for the Bears. They had 12 for 113 yards against Colorado and have been flagged for 373 yards in four games.
