SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — After starting the Pac-12 season with back-to-back losses, California has a lot more to worry about than a blowout loss a year ago to Southern California.
When that loss was as thorough and humiliating as that 48-14 game at the Los Angeles Coliseum was for the Golden Bears, it’s hard to forget it completely.
The Trojans rolled out to a 42-0 halftime lead and coasted to the victory. USC gained 373 yards in the opening half and held Cal scoreless until the closing minutes of the third quarter after the score was already 45-0.
Cal (3-2, 0-2) looks to put together a much stronger performance in this year’s rematch against the Trojans (4-1, 2-1) at the Golden Bears’ temporary home of AT&T Park on Thursday night.
