High SAT scores don't seem to correlate with intelligence on the football field as Cal blows an opportunity to tie the Beavers in the final seconds of the game.

Oregon beat the #2 Cal Bears 31-28 in an incredible game. OSU survived a late push from the Bears to pull a huge upset.

OSU basically hit all of my keys to the game, except for stopping the run and minimizing big plays. Sean Canfield played his best game as a Beaver today. He did not throw a single INT. He made no major mistakes and it was the main reason we won. Bernard played hard as always. That kid has heart.

Layborne(sp?) nearly cost us the game with some big mistakes....

OSU played with huge heart and intensity. The offensive line was fierce for 4 qtrs. The defensive front 7 played unreal. Stopping Cal 4 times at the goal line was insane. Our defensive line is probably the best in the NCAA.

The ending of the game was bizarre. I thought this was going to overtime. Cal's QB is a redshirt freshman and it showed at the end. All he had to do was throw the ball out of bounds instead of trying to run it up the middle. This loss will hurt for a long time for the Bears. Worse, LSU lost to Kentucky earlier. If Cal won, they would have been #1 in the nation.

This was a great win for the program.
