  09/08/19 - Chase GarbersrSo/2022, California, 6-2, 205 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  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 2┬Ż 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

  WEEK 2 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL FBS DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: EVAN WEAVER, CALIFORNIA, Senior, Linebacker, Gonzaga, WH/Gonzaga,...Evan Weaver recorded a career-high 18 tackles (14 solo), including two tackles for loss, and one forced fumble as California defeated Pac-12 rival Washington, 20-19. With the victory, the Golden Bears improved to 2-0. Notes: Evan Weaver is the fifth California player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004, and the first since former Golden Bear linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk (Oct. 15, 2017). - The Walter Camp Football Foundation

  Christopher Brown Jr. had never been called into a postgame press conference before so the California running back needed a little help to get settled in. The way Brown ran the ball in the Golden Bears season opener, he might as well get used to it. Brown rushed for a career-high 197 yards and a touchdown on 36 carries in his first start, and California overcame a sloppy first half and beat UC Davis 27-13 on Saturday. "We were trained for this and we were overly prepared for this," Brown said. "That played a big role in how many touches we get, how many plays we get. It's really the guys up front that made the holes. I just ran. They blocked."

Brown, a seldom-used backup to Patrick Laird last season, provided the biggest spark and became the first Cal running back to go over 100 yards in his first start since Jahvid Best in 2008. "We knew Chris would get the ball a lot," Bears coach Justin Wilcox said. "That's what we expect of him. He's a big, physical guy and this is his type of game. Give it to him and let him break tackles. Probably more touches and more yards than he had all last year. He's been preparing for this." That was critical on a day when Cal's passing game was hit-and-miss for most of the afternoon. Quarterback Chase Garbers shrugged off two turnovers and completed 16 of 28 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns, both to Kekoa Crawford. Greg Thomas kicked a pair of field goals, including a career-best 47-yarder, as the Golden Bears won their third consecutive opener under Wilcox. - AP College Football
