Yahoo Sports: Cal's L.A. Woes



Cal coach Jeff Tedford has done many good things in rebuilding the program since arriving in Berkeley in 2002.  He has led Cal to six bowls in a row and notched a 62-30 record, including a 36-23 mark in the Pac-10. Tedford also led the Bears to a share of the Pac-10 title in 2006. Best of all in the eyes of Cal fans: Tedford is 6-1 against Stanford.

But Tedford has yet to notch a win in Los Angeles since becoming Cal’s head coach. The Bears play at UCLA on Saturday, bringing with them an 0-7 record in L.A. under Tedford. Failures to win in Southern California are a major reason why he has been unable to get Cal to its first Rose Bowl since the 1958 season.
