BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Giving up five fourth-quarter touchdowns, squandering an 18-point lead and losing on a last-second desperation heave could leave a long-term hangover for many teams.
For a California team that has lost 15 straight Pac-12 games after last week's collapse at Arizona, the loss lingered only for a short time as the players decided to take the positives out of three strong quarters rather than dwell on a rough fourth.
The Golden Bears (2-1, 0-1) hope that confidence transfers over to their conference home opener on Saturday against Colorado (2-2, 0-1).
Cal has not won a conference game since winning at Washington State on Oct. 13, 2012.
