Cal Vs. Stanford Final Score: Big Game Goes To Cardinal, Despite Bears' Best Effort

The Cal Bears hung around for much of the game, heading into the half down by just a point and coming as close as seven in the fourth quarter in the Big Game. But the Bears ran out of real estate as Stanford kicked a field goal with three minutes to go to make it a two-possession game.

Cal did find the end zone on its next possession, but ran off all but 14 seconds of clock. The one-yard touchdown run cut the Stanford lead to three, 31-28, but Cal needed an onside kick and at least a field goal to force overtime.

The Bears were unable to come up with the onside kick as Stanford tight end Coby Fleener collected the ball to dash Cal's hopes. Despite making a late run and giving Stanford a scare, Cal was unable to pull off yet another upset on a wild Saturday, falling by a field goal, 31-28.
