CALIFORNIA WON: Zach Maynard completed 25 of 30 passes for 295 yards and four touchdowns as California (2-4) upset No. 25 UCLA (4-2), 43-17, in Berkeley. The Bears forced six Bruin turnovers, including four interceptions by quarterback Brett Hundley, to hold a UCLA offense that was averaging 37 points per game coming in to just 17 points. CJ Anderson rushed for 151 yards and a score, while tight end Richard Rodgers caught seven passes for 129 yards. Hundley threw for 252 yards and two scores for UCLA, while running back Johnathan Franklin had 103 yards on 15 carries. It was Cal's seventh-straight win over the Bruins in Berkeley.
WHEN CALIFORNIA WON: A comedy of errors ensued early in the fourth quarter with Cal leading, 29-17. Anderson fumbled, but UCLA gave it back on its next possession when Cameron Jackson intercepted Hundley. Then UCLA defensive tackle Cassius Marsh pounced on a Maynard fumble before Michael Lowe intercepted another Hundley pass and returned it 57 yards to the UCLA 27. This time, Cal finally took advantage, with Anderson pounding his way to the one-yard line on three carries and Maynard sneaking it in from there to make the score 36-17 and in the bag for the Bears with 7:57 to play.
WHY CALIFORNIA WON: Maynard played his best game of the season and showed how effective Jeff Tedford's offense can be when it gets good quarterback play. The Bears piled up 495 yards from scrimmage and kept the UCLA defense on its toes with an unpredictable game plan. But it wouldn't have worked without Maynard, who completed 83 percent of his passes after hitting under 50 percent in his previous two games.
WHAT CALIFORNIA WON: A good win over a good team. The Bears hadn't beaten an FBS team yet this season and Tedford's seat was starting to get hot. The next five games are winnable, so a bowl game is still a possibility. But it had to start with a win tonight.
WHAT UCLA LOST: A chance to snap the road game blues against Cal. UCLA hasn't beaten the Bears in Berkeley since 1998.
