BERKELEY -- Without Darius Allensworth, California started walk-on safety Chibuzo Nwokocha and featured De'Zhon Grace heavily in the cornerback rotation, and with safety Luke Rubenzer going down in the middle of the game, the Bears played Malik Psalms -- a former corner -- heavily at safety. True freshman Traveon Beck -- who started the season as a backup nickel -- was also pressed into service this week as a corner.
The Bears allowed 417 passing yards, including a 39-yard touchdown pass from receiver Dante Pettis to Oakley (Calif.) Freedom product Darrell Daniels. The 66 points given up set a modern-era school record. The 704 yards given up were the most this season. 812 yards in 2014 is the program record for yards given up.
