Kickoff – Cal vs. Washington (Friday, Nov. 2, 6 p.m. PT)
Heading home for two of the nal three weeks of the regular season, Cal hostsWashington at Memorial Stadium tonight for Cal’s rst-ever “Gold Out” footballgame. Cal is coming off a 49-27 loss at Utah last Saturday, while Washingtonknocked off previously unbeaten Oregon State, 20-17, at home. Cal needsto sweep its nal three regular-season games to become bowl eligible, whileWashington must win two of its remaining four.The last time the Huskies came to Berkeley was the 2010 regular-seasonnale, which also marked Cal’s last game at Memorial Stadium before the venuewas renovated. Although Washington has won three straight in the series, thelast two meetings between the Bears and the Huskies were not decided untilthe nal moments of the game. Washington plunged into the end zone fromone yard out to score the game-winning touchdown on the nal play in 2010for a 16-13 victory. In 2011, Cal took the ball 85 yards for rst-and-goal fromthe Washington two-yard line before the Huskies held them out of the endzone four straight times for a 31-23 win.

Although Cal’s rushing attack has been held to a 78.0 yardaverage over the last two games after averaging 220.7 in the previous three,Bigelow was able to rattle off his third touchdown run of 50-plus yards atUtah when he scored on a 57-yard TD and is averaging 12.7 yards per runon 27 carries. The last time a Cal running back had three rushes of 50 or more yards was Best in 2009 (61, 73, 93). Bigelow’s other two 50-plus yardTD runs came at Ohio State when he rushed for a career and team-high 160yards on four carries to become only the second FBS player in the last decadeto have over 150 yards rushing on ve or fewer carries. One of Bigelow’sruns at Ohio State was an 81-yard touchdown that was the longest rush bya Cal player since a 93-yard touchdown run by Best at UCLA in 2009 andthe longest run by an opponent in the history of Ohio Stadium. Bigelow alsohad another score of 59 yards at Ohio State.
