Cal beat the Air Force Academy in the Armed Forces Bowl by a score of 42 to 36. Kevin Riley replaced Nate Longshore and was almost flawless, completing 16 of 19 passes for 269 total yards and three touchdowns. His passing percentage was 84.2 percent.
Longshore wasn’t bad, completing 5 of 8 attempts for 36 yards, but Tedford said before the game that Riley would get a chance, and when he sparked the team to 14 quick points by the close of the half there was no looking back.
A nice way to close an incredibly frustrating season.
