Post Game Thoughts: UC Davis

For 16 minutes and 37 seconds, this was the least fun Cal football game since perhaps this game. Over the first quarter and change Cal had as many turnovers (3) as first downs. Cal’s longest passing play that didn’t end in a turnover was 5 yards, and Chase Garbers was 3-8 for 16 yards. Thanks to a 30 yard net punt, a holding on a kick return, and a fumble, special teams had consistently provided horrible field position. The defense was OKish but allowing 10 points and 94 yards early wasn’t exactly encouraging either, and Davis seemed to be finding both running lanes and open receivers.
