Postgame React: Oregon State 31, California 14

Final Score: Oregon State 31, California 14

We have to first of all start with the injury to Jahvid Best. It greatly changed the dynamic of this game, and it's great to hear that it looks like Best only suffered a concussion and nothing extremely serious, as it first appeared. Again, the thoughts and prayers of Beaver Nation are with the Best family and the California football program tonight. 

Sean Canfield finished the game 29 of 39 passing, and threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception in the second half, but overall, played very well. Joe Halahuni caught six passes for 128 yards, and is quickly becoming OSU's most dangerous receiver. 

The Bears did a great job containing Jacquizz Rodgers and stopping the run. Rodgers finished with 68 yards on 25 carries, with 25 of those yards coming on Quizz's lone touchdown of the night. At one point in the first half, Jacquizz had 14 rushing yards on 14 carries. 

A lot of credit also needs to go to the defense, the front seven especially. They held Cal to just 39 rushing yards in the game. Kevin Riley was 19 of 34 for 200 yards. He threw a touchdown and an interception-- he was okay, but not fantastic by any means. 

We've already started to break down this game in the second half open thread, but here's a place to post more of your analysis on tonight's win. My game recap will come later tonight, so keep an eye out for that.
