AP: #6 California Golden Bears Put 28 Points on Board in First Quarter to Cruise Past Arizona

Justin Forsett ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns and Nate Longshore threw for 235 yards and a touchdown as the #6 California Golden Bears jumped to a big lead early and cruised past the Arizona Wildcats 45-27 in a Pac 10 showdown Saturday.  The Bears scored four touchdowns in the first quarter to set the tone as Forsett got it started with a 9-yard touchdown run. After the Wildcats managed to put a field goal on the board California countered with a Longshore to Lavelle Hawkins for a 18-yard touchdown. Cal tacked on a Jahvid Best 1-yard touchdown run and then Tyson Alualu recovered a fumble and took it back 4-yards to give the bears a 28-3 first quarter lead.  California’s defense shut down the Wildcats running game, holding Arizona to just 21 yards on 20 carries and picked of quarterback Willie Tuitama twice in the rout.   Next week the California Golden Bears will put their 4-0 record on the line when they travel to take on the #13 Oregon Ducks.
