Cal Beats Washington State 20-13

PULLMAN, Wash. (CBS/AP) — Shane Vereen ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns, and up-and-down California snapped a six-game road losing streak that dated to last season with a 20-13 win over Washington State on Saturday.

The Bears (5-4, 3-3 Pac-10) were playing without quarterback Kevin Riley, who injured his knee in a game against Oregon State last week.

Brock Mansion started in his place, completing 12 of 24 passes for 174 yards while throwing two interceptions against a WSU (1-9, 0-7) defense that ranked at or near the bottom of the conference in nearly every defensive statistic.

But a staunch defensive effort by Cal, which had lost its previous four road games this season by a combined score of 145-61, bailed out the Bears’ ineffective offense against a Cougar team that has now lost 16 consecutive conference games.
