  The face of Cal football for the past four years is on the move. Redshirt senior quarterback Chase Garbers announced via Twitter on Dec. 14 that he is declaring for the 2022 NFL draft. While sporting a blue and gold uniform, Garbers has thrown for 6,580 total yards and boasts 1,174 total yards on the ground. During the fall 2021 season, the Newport Beach local surpassed former Cal quarterback Joe Kapp as the program's all-time lead rushing quarterback and ranked within the Pac-12's top three quarterbacks for total offense. Garbers' decision follows a series of announcements made by a number of graduating Bears, including Nikko Remigio, Trevon Clark and Christopher Brooks. Stretched thin of former starters, Cal will have to rely heavily upon younger faces to fill gaping voids next season. - Daily Californian

  Chase Garbers returned from a bout with COVID-19 to throw the longest pass in Big Game history, leading California to a 41-11 victory over Stanford on Saturday. Garbers was one of more than 20 players from Cal (4-6, 3-4 Pac-12) to miss the game at Arizona two weeks ago following a positive test. The Golden Bears had more than 40 positive tests in all for the program, leading to last week's game against Southern California to be postponed. But nearly all of those players were back on Saturday for the Big Game and Cal delivered a thorough beating of Stanford (3-8, 2-7) with 636 yards of offense, including 352 on the ground. Garbers delivered the biggest play with an 84-yard TD pass to Trevon Young to open the scoring in the second quarter. That broke the record for longest pass in the series, eclipsing the 82-yarder Brian Johnson threw to Walter Batson for Stanford in 1987.

Garbers added a 1-yard TD pass to Christopher Brooks later in the half to deliver Cal just its second win in the past 11 Big Games. Garbers ran and threw for a score two years ago in a 24-20 win at Stanford Stadium that was the Bears' only other win in the past 11 games against Stanford (3-8, 2-7). The Cardinal have dropped six straight games overall for their longest skid since losing their first nine games in 2006 under coach Walt Harris. Even the return of Tanner McKee made little difference for Stanford. He missed the past two games when the Cardinal were outscored by 66 points in losses to Utah and Oregon State and struggled to get much going on offense. Stanford was gashed again by big plays, allowing a 75-yard run to Brooks and a 76-yard TD run to Marcel Dancy in the third quarter. The Cardinal have allowed five TDs from scrimmage of more than 50 yards in the past three games. - California/AP College Football

  After three straight Pac-12 losses to open the season, California is starting to find its stride. Chase Garbers threw one of his three TD passes one play after a partially blocked punt and the Golden Bears beat Oregon State 39-25 Saturday. "We're certainly improving," Cal coach Justin Wilcox said. "There are guys who are developing and making some big plays in the game who are coming into their own a little bit. We are improving but the margins are so thin at this level of football and in our conference that there are going to be a handful of critical plays in the game that you have to find a way to make and I thought there were some big ones today." The biggest plays came in the closing seconds of the third quarter with Cal (3-5, 2-3 Pac-12) leading by seven points.

Chance Nolan couldn't connect with Trevon Bradford on a third-down pass and sent out Luke Loecher to punt. Nick Alftin got a piece of the kick and it went out of bounds 1 yard past the line of scrimmage. Garbers then went deep and connected on a 38-yard TD pass to Trevon Clark to make it 31-17 on the final play of the third quarter. The Beavers (5-3, 3-2) lost for the second time in three games and fell a game behind rival Oregon in the Pac-12 North. "There's nobody feeling sorry for themselves, because we put ourselves in this position," defensive back Jaydon Grant said. "We're the ones who came out and didn't execute. We're the ones who came out and got out-physicaled from top to bottom. We're the ones who are accountable for losing this game - not the coaches, not the game plan. It's us. It's not being able to execute for four quarters throughout the duration of the game. It's don't feel sorry for yourself and back to work tomorrow." Oregon State tried to mount a comeback, cutting it to 31-25 on a 46-yard TD pass from Chance Nolan to Trevon Bradford followed by a 2-point conversion. - California/AP College Football

  Chase Garbers passed for two touchdowns and broke the school record for career rushing yards by a quarterback, leading California past Colorado, 26-3, on Saturday. The Golden Bears (2-5, 1-3 Pac-12) made several big plays offensively to go with a solid afternoon from their defense and special teams while snapping a three-game losing streak. Garbers completed 22 of 29 passes for 225 yards but did his most damage on the ground, rushing for 96 yards on 10 carries. That also moved Garbers past Joe Kapp as Cal's all-time leader for quarterbacks with 1,025 yards. Kapp ran for 931 from 1956-58. Dario Longhetto made a career-best four field goals, including a 50-yarder as time expired in the first half. The Bears defense added six sacks and held the Buffaloes to 104 yards of offense.

Colorado (2-5, 1-3) failed to get into the end zone and was limited to a 33-yard field goal by Cole Becker. The Bears, off to their worst start since coach Justin Wilcox took over in 2017, scored on their first five possessions and led 23-3 at halftime. Garbers had a pair of touchdown throws in the first half, including a perfectly thrown 24-yard lob to freshman tight end Keleki Latu over tight coverage by Colorado linebacker Quinn Perry. Cal pushed its lead to 17 when Garbers ran a play-fake and connected with wide open Gavin Reinwald for a 31-yard score. Colorado never got anything going. Buffaloes quarterback Brendon Lewis was held to 69 yards passing while the running game managed only 35 yards. - California/AP College Football

  After opening the season with a couple of tight losses, California coach Justin Wilcox will take any sort of win - even if it was closer than he wanted against a lower-level team. Chase Garbers threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns, Nikko Remigio returned the second-half kickoff for a score and Cal beat Sacramento State 42-30 Saturday for its first win of the season. "You never minimize a win," Wilcox said. "It's hard winning in college football, regardless of who you're playing...It's good to get a win. But we all know that we need to be much, much better." The Golden Bears (1-2) had lost their first two games of the season to Nevada and TCU in tight contests but handled the FCS-level Hornets (1-2) to avoid their first 0-3 start in a full season since 2001. Cal also lost its first three games in last year's pandemic-abbreviated four-game slate.

Garbers led the Bears to TD drives on their first two possessions of the game on drives capped by 4-yard TD runs from Damien Moore. Garbers got into the act himself when he connected on a 45-yard TD pass to Jeremiah Hunter late in the first half and a 12-yard touchdown to Trevon Clark in the third. He also ran for a 16-yard score in the fourth. "Each and every week we have gotten better," Garbers said about Cal's offense. "We have taken steps forward. As the season goes on and weeks go on, we'll keep taking that next step." - California/AP College Football

  After a pandemic-shortened 2020 season, the California Golden Bears are excited to show off what they hope will be a much more dynamic offense with respected longtime NFL coordinator Bill Musgrave and veteran quarterback Chase Garbers. Coach Justin Wilcox brought on Musgrave last season to build on a strong finish to 2019 only to have spring practice cut short after only a few sessions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Then after an abbreviated offseason, the Bears managed to play only four games last season, with one canceled as they arrived at the stadium and another scheduled on short notice.

The results predictably weren't very good as Cal won just one game and scored 20.3 points per game. That should change this season after a full spring practice and offseason. "We've had a lot more time to communicate, meet, spend on football," Wilcox said. "Any time you get that, you're getting better and better every day. If you talk to Chase, he'd tell you the same thing. The comfort level has significantly improved." Garbers has fared well in his career when healthy. He has thrown for 4,049 yards in 24 career games with 34 TDs and 16 interceptions. Cal won all seven games in 2019 when Garbers was healthy but lost twice when he left early with injuries and went 1-3 when he didn't play. "I think Chase is primed for a great season. I really do," Wilcox said. "He's played a ton of football. Got a lot of different experiences. His comfort level in practice, his comfort level within the schemes, just operating. He's confident. I think that just comes with age and time. Doesn't always happen overnight. He's had some really good moments. He's learned a lot along the way." - Oakland Tribune

  Chase Garbers threw for a touchdown and ran for a short score, Muelu Iosefa had a late fumble recovery, and California earned its first victory of the season by beating No. 21 Oregon 21-17 on Saturday night. Oregon (3-2) got the ball back with 2:01 left and Tyler Shough marched the Ducks down the field, but his team gave the ball away once again in what has become a problematic pattern for the Ducks this season. Garbers outshined young Oregon star Shough, who threw for 231 yards in his fifth time with 200-plus yards passing in as many career starts.

Shough's 67-yard completion to Travis Dye in the final minute of the second quarter set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Cyrus Habibi-Likio that lifted the Ducks to a 17-14 halftime lead. They didn't score again. Garbers completed 10 of his first 13 passes and wound up 20 of 32 for 183 yards for the Golden Bears (1-3), who had an extra-point attempt blocked in the waning moments of a 24-23 loss to rival Stanford in the Big Game last Friday on their home field. - California/AP College Football

  Stanford linebacker Gabe Reid said of Garbers: "He's a dangerous weapon. We saw that last year in the Big Game. He kind of gashed us, so we're definitely emphasizing doing your assignment. It's not about trying to do too much, but working together to try to bring him down. It's about getting everybody to the ball." Fans often define Cal quarterbacks by how they perform in games against Stanford. Just ask Kevin Brown, Steve Levy and Dave Penhall, who have all combined to pay for zero meals in Berkeley since improbable Big Game wins. But Garbers is different. He was good before his career-defining victory and has shown signs of being great since. Cal is 13-7 when Garbers starts and 13-4 when he plays more than a half. He's the Pac-12's active leader in wins (13) and has a Redbox Bow Offensive MVP on his mantel after a five-touchdown onslaught against Illinois last year.

After impossible circumstances in the season opener, which called for Cal to prep for UCLA without defensive linemen and travel to Pasadena - all in about a 40-hour timespan - Garbers went 18-of-33 for 122 yards and an interception. He bounced back last week at Oregon State with a 28-of-42, 315-yard, three-touchdown performance that graded out at 92% on offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's scale. "Confidence comes from one source and one source only, and that's demonstrated performance," Musgrave said. "Chase played here as a young player and got some good experience and took some lumps, like we all do when we start out playing. I think he's learning as he goes along. "He's climbing, he's learning, and he's gaining from every single rep that he gets." - San Francisco Chronicle

  Longtime NFL assistant Bill Musgrave was hired Friday to become the new offensive coordinator at California. Coach Justin Wilcox announced Musgrave will replace Beau Baldwin next season for the Golden Bears. Baldwin left to become head coach at Cal Poly. "Bill Musgrave has a brilliant offensive mind and is one of the top teachers of offensive football and quarterbacks," Wilcox said. “Bill has incredible football knowledge and has been extremely versatile in the offensive systems he has run throughout his career, which is important. He also has a strong desire to coach again at the collegiate level, where he can help develop young football players at a formative stage of their careers.”

Musgrave has more than two decades of coaching experience in college and the pros and has spent 13 seasons as an offensive coordinator. His only college coaching job came in 2001-02 when he was offensive coordinator at Virginia. He has ties to the Bay Area having played as a backup quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers from 1991-94 and serving as offensive coordinator for the Raiders in 2015-16 when he helped them earn their only playoff berth in the past 17 seasons. - AP College Football

  Chase Garbers threw four touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading California to a 35-20 win over Illinois on Monday in the Redbox Bowl. Christopher Brown Jr. ran for 120 yards on 20 carries, and Makai Polk caught five passes for a season-high 105 yards as Cal (8-5) won its first bowl game since 2015. Brandon Peters passed for 273 yards and one touchdown for Illinois (6-7) in his return after sitting out the regular-season finale with a concussion. Peters, who was shaken up again after diving out of bounds following a scramble late in the fourth quarter, completed 22 of 37 passes and added a team-high 68 rushing yards.

Garbers, who had been in and out of the lineup all season because of a shoulder injury, got going after being sacked on the first play from scrimmage and throwing an incomplete pass on the second. The offensive MVP of the game, Garbers completed 22 of 31 passes for 272 yards with TD passes of 4, 3, 2 and 6 yards. He also scored on quarterback sneak from the 1 early in the second quarter while helping the Bears set a season-high for scoring. The strong showing by Garbers offset an uneven day by California’s defense. - AP College Football

  Chase Garbers and California were determined not to rest on their laurels after last week's win over Stanford in The Big Game. The Golden Bears showed no signs of a letdown as they defeated UCLA 28-18 on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl. Cal (7-5, 4-5 Pac-12) was led by Christopher Brown Jr.'s 111 yards rushing and two touchdowns while the defense had a season-high six sacks and held the Bruins to 58 rushing yards. "Many people might have seen this as a trap game coming off the win over Stanford, but I think we came out and imposed our will on them. We had that mindset during practice all week," said Garbers, who completed 17 of 29 passes for 230 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Brown - who had his second 100-yard game of the season — scored both of his touchdowns in the second half as the Golden Bears completed the regular season with wins in three of their last four. Cal led 14-10 at halftime before they went up by two scores with 5:38 remaining in the third quarter on Brown's 1-yard run up the middle. After UCLA responded with Joshua Kelley's 1-yard TD run and Dorian Thompson-Robinson's pass to Delon Hurt for the 2-point conversion, Brown got another huge hole and went 11 yards to give the Bears a 28-18 advantage 7 seconds into the fourth quarter. - California/AP College Football

  It took nearly a decade, a heads-up play by oft-injured California quarterback Chase Garbers and one final stand by the Golden Bears defense to make it happen. The Axe is headed back to Berkeley. Garbers scored on a 16-yard scramble with 1:19 remaining in the fourth quarter, lifting California to a 24-20 win over Stanford in the 122nd annual Big Game on Saturday. "We finally got it back," Garbers said of The Axe, which has been in Stanford's possession since 2009. Garbers, who was knocked out of last week's loss to USC, passed for 285 yards and a touchdown and ran for 72 yards on 13 carries. His final run came after he overthrew Nikko Remigio in the end zone and helped the Golden Bears (6-5, 3-5 Pac-12) end a nine-game losing streak to their San Francisco bay rivals. "I was just excited I had a rushing touchdown" Garbers said.

Garbers wasn't even cleared to play against Stanford until late Thursday evening. He had suffered an upper body injury a week earlier against USC and was held out of all contact drills in the days leading up to the Big Game. "Gutsy, tough," Bears coach Justin Wilcox said of his quarterback. "To make the throws that he made on the last drive and then the scramble for the touchdown, those are huge plays. I think people are going to be talking about that drive for a while." California fans stormed the field after the game, forming a blue-and-yellow sea on the floor of Stanford Stadium. More importantly for Wilcox's team, California became bowl eligible heading into the season finale against UCLA next week. - California/AP College Football

  California will be without starting quarterback Chase Garbers indefinitely because of an apparent shoulder injury he suffered in Friday's loss to Arizona State. Garbers was scrambling when he fell on his throwing arm late in the second quarter against the Sun Devils. After being taken to the locker room for examination, Garbers emerged in the second half wearing a splint. Coach Justin Wilcox declined on Monday to say what the nature or severity of Garbers injury is, saying only that it is an upper body injury. “That's kind of all we can say about it,” Wilcox said. “I understand the interest. There's only so much we can say. He'll be back hopefully as fast as humanly possible.”

A redshirt sophomore who split time as a starter in 2018, Garbers was coming off his best game with the Golden Bears after throwing for a career-best 357 yards and four touchdowns in a win at Mississippi on Sept. 21. Garbers led Cal on an early scoring driving against Arizona State and was 9 of 12 for 177 yards and a touchdown before getting hurt. “I thought he was really coming into his own,” Wilcox said. “Even in that game, he finished 9 of 12 and two of (the incompletions) were dropped. So you feel for him. He puts a ton of time in this too. But it's part of it. It'll be next man up.” Devon Modster, a transfer from UCLA who struggled in the second half after replacing Garbers, will start Saturday against at No. 13 Oregon. Modster was 5 of 14 for 23 yards and an interception in the end zone against Arizona State. Afterward, he called his performance terrible. - AP College Football

  California quarterback Chase Garbers left the game against Arizona State in the second quarter with an apparent right arm injury. Garbers got hurt when he landed on his throwing arm on a scramble late in the second quarter for the 15th-ranked Golden Bears on Friday night. He was helped off the field, giving high-fives to teammates with his left arm and went straight to the locker room. There was no immediate word on the extent of the injury. Devon Modster came in to replace Garbers and threw an interception in the end zone in the closing seconds of the first half. - AP College Football

  Chase Garbers passed for one touchdown after using his legs to get California's offense going, Greg Thomas kicked three field goals and the Golden Bears beat North Texas 23-17 on Saturday. Christopher Brown Jr. ran for 47 yards and a touchdown while Cal's defense had six sacks and forced two turnovers. The Bears are 3-0 for the third time in three years under coach Justin Wilcox. Cal won despite being held to three points over the final three quarters. For us it was all about the level of execution and we've just got a long way to go there," Wilcox said. "No two ways about it. Our guys play hard and the effort's really good. Now the level of execution's gotta match that for us to do what we want to do. We're not there yet."

North Texas quarterback Mason Fine completed 21 of 40 attempts for 210 yards and two touchdowns to surpass the 10,000-yard mark for his career but the Mean Green (1-2) fell behind big for the second straight week and couldn't recover. Cal dominated on both sides early in the first-ever matchup between the two schools then held on after North Texas made a late surge. The Mean Green pulled within 23-17 on Fine's 18-yard TD to Jyaire Shorter late in the fourth quarter and got the ball back with less than two minutes remaining but turned it over on downs. Garbers was a big factor for the Bears staying unbeaten, one week after Cal's stunning 20-19 win over then-No. 14 Washington in a game that was delayed by weather for more than 2½ hours. Garbers repeatedly burned the Mean Green with keepers and scrambles while running for a career-high 70 yards on 18 carries despite North Texas frequently stacking the box. - Cal Football

  It took until early Sunday morning before California could run onto the field in celebration, party with the few Golden Bears fans still hanging around and enjoy another victory over Washington. Greg Thomas kicked a 17-yard field goal with 8 seconds left, and California beat No. 14 Washington 20-19 in a game delayed more than 2½ hours due to severe weather. The Pac-12 Conference opener for the schools ended up being a strange night on the shore of Lake Washington, capped by Thomas' short field goal, giving the Golden Bears (2-0, 1-0 Pac-12) the shocking victory. A severe thunder and lightning storm delayed the game early in the first quarter and left only a smattering of fans waiting out the lengthy delay when the game resumed at 10:30 p.m. and finally ended at 1:22 a.m.

It was only the Bears' fans cheering in a corner of the mostly empty stadium when the clock hit zero after knocking off the Huskies for the second straight year. "I'm really proud of the team because it wasn't the cleanest, but they just keep fighting and they're a tough bunch of guys," Cal coach Justin Wilcox said. California quarterback Chase Garbers wasn't asked to do much with his arm, but came up with two big completions on the final drive, hitting Jordan Duncan for 19 yards and Kekoa Crawford for 27 yards to get inside the Washington 5. The Bears were aided by a pass interference call and, after forcing Washington to call three timeouts, Thomas connected on a field goal shorter than an extra point. - AP College Football
