CALIFORNIA: Jahvid Best only carried the ball 10 times in the opener for California, but that is all the sensational tailback needed to lead the Golden Bears to a convincing, 52-13 win over Maryland. On his third carry of the season the junior back scampered for a 73-yard touchdown, giving the Golden Bears a lead they would never relinquish. Best finished with 137 yards and two scores in the contest, while Covaughn DeBoskie-Johnson added 54 yards on nine carries, and Shane Vereen tallied 48 yards and one TD on 10 attempts. Not to be out done was quarterback Kevin Riley, who threw for 298 yards and four scores on 17-of-26 passing. Cal will once again be home next week when the team hosts Eastern Washington.
