Game Notes

California finishes the regular season with an overall record of 7-5, te Bears' first winning season since 2011 when the Bears finished 7-5 and played Texas in the Holiday Bowl. Cal has now won nine of the last 11 meetings against the Sun Devils. The last time Cal overcame a 21-point deficit was in the 2007 Armed Forces Bowl, which was also a 21-point comeback that led to a 42-36 win over Air Force.

Cal finishes the 2015 regular season with a record of 5-1 at home, the Bears best home record since 2008 when they won all seven home games.

With a school-record 542 yards through the air, Jared Goff increased his school record to 11,733 career passing yards. He also increased his school record for career touchdown passes to 90, which tied him for fourth all-time in Pac-12 history with Washington State's Connor Halliday. Goff completed 30-of-51 passes tonight along with five touchdowns. Goff now has 29 250-yard passing performances, 20 300-yard passing performances, seven 400-yard passing games and three 500-yard passing games, all school records. Goff also broke his own school single-season record for passing yards, now with 4,252, surpassing his previous record from last year of 3,973. He became the ninth quarterback in Pac-12 history to throw for 4,000 yards. He also broke his single-season school record for total offense, now with 4,260, surpassing his previous record of 3929 that he set in 2014. Goff broke his school single-season passing touchdown record, now with 37 this season, breaking his previous record of 35. Goff also had a career-long 20-yard run, part of his personal-best 31 rushing yards.

Cal set team single-season records in passing yardage (4,425), passing touchdowns (38) and total offense (6293).

Junior linebacker Hardy Nickerson set a career high with 16 tackles.

Senior defensive end Kyle Kragen notched his sixth sack this season, ninth of his career. He is 11th in the Pac-12 in sacks, and 29th in tackles.

Senior defensive tackle Trevor Kelly and freshman defensive end Cameron Saffle notched their first career sacks. Redshirt senior defensive end Todd Barr collected his fourth sack this season, giving him 8.5 for his career.

Senior wide receiver Trevor Davis caught a 34-yard pass in the first quarter. It was his 11th play of over 20 yards this season.

Junior place kicker Matt Anderson is now 16-for-19 on the season and has made his last 10 attempts. He was 2-for-2 on Saturday, good on field goal attempts from 39 and 26 yards. The last time Cal won with a game-winning field goal, it was off the foot of James Langford against Colorado last year in overtime.

Junior defensive tackle Marcus Manley and redshirt freshman safety Quentin Tartabull made their first career starts. Tartabull -- the son of former Major Leaguer Danny Tartabull -- played in his first game as a Bear, after redshirting due to injury last year, and missing most of fall camp while rehabbing.
