SF Chronicle: Big day for receiver Jones

Ron Kroichick

Saturday's game was a homecoming for Cal wide receiver Marvin Jones. He grew up in Etiwanda (San Bernardino County), a short drive from the Rose Bowl, and talked excitedly during the week of playing in front of several family members and friends.  Jones gave them reasons to cheer, catching two first-half touchdown passes to propel the Bears toward their 45-26 victory. Both times, quarterback Kevin Riley lofted the ball high into the air to give Jones, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound sophomore, a chance to run under it.  On the second touchdown, with 46 seconds left before halftime, Jones outjumped UCLA cornerback Alterraun Verner in the back of the end zone.  "Kevin just puts the ball up where nobody can catch it but me," Jones said. "That's what I love, and he does a good job doing that."
