BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Jared Goff threw for 309 yards and three touchdowns in one half and California returned two interceptions for scores to beat Grambling State 73-14 in a season opener Saturday.

Goff connected with Kenny Lawler three times for scores as the Golden Bears broke out to a 52-0 halftime lead with the highest-scoring half in modern school history.

Cameron Walker and Devante Downs each returned interceptions for scores as Cal overwhelmed lower-division Grambling State on both sides of the ball.

Johnathan Williams threw four interceptions in the first half against the Tigers, who have been outscored 185-20 in their last three meetings against schools from Power Five conferences.

Martez Carter scored on a 90-yard run in the fourth quarter and Nicholas Peoples added two interceptions for the Tigers.
