BERKELEY— Freshman quarterback Jared Goff needed just one game to work his way into California's record books.
Getting the rebuilding Golden Bears a win might be a bit more challenging.
After hosting Portland State this Saturday, Cal faces four ranked teams in a six-week span that includes back-to-back games against No. 3 Ohio State and No.2 Oregon.
That's why Goff doesn't understand what all the fuss was about after he passed for 445 yards and two touchdowns in his Cal debut, a season-opening 44-30 loss to No. 19 Northwestern.
"The main job of the quarterback is to win," Goff said. "It was helpful getting my first game under me, but at the same time I wanted to finish that game out on top. We didn't, so it was disappointing."
