Lackluster Season Continues in Loss to Arizona

Jason Johnson threw for 315 yards and four touchdowns as Arizona snapped a 10-game conference losing streak with a 38-24 victory over winless Cal on Saturday.

Johnson hit Bobby Wade for touchdown passes of 50, 13 and 16 yards, while Clarence Farmer ran for a career-best 165 yards and a score. With Johnson completing 19 of 28 passes, Arizona (4-5, 1-5) kept its long-shot bowl hopes alive.

Cal QB Kyle Boller, who missed the previous two games with a back injury, relieved freshman Reggie Robertson and threw TD passes of 38 and 44 yards to LaShaun Ward in the fourth quarter. Terrell Williams also had a 2-yard TD run for the Golden Bears, who have only three chances left to avoid the school's first winless season since 1897.
