Cal Football Returns To Its Roots, Runs Their Opponents Off The Field [Pacific Takes]

19

"After running an average of 30 times at a pace of three to four yards per carry the first four-five meaningful contests, Cal has upped it to 40-45 carries a game the past three and average about four to six yards per carry. Isi Sofele has gotten better as conference play has progressed. He actually had a strong 100+ yard game against Oregon (but only was given the ball 12 times), then struggled against good USC and Utah teams, but after that he's started to take off, amassing 330 yards the last two weeks. Cal ran over Washington State and Oregon State by using the ground game and a platoon of backs (Sofele, C.J. Anderson, Mike Manuel, Covaughn Deboskie-Johnson, Brendan Bigelow) all getting touches to keep defenses on their heels. The Cal run attack has amassed nearly 300 yards per game the past two victories after only topping 150 yards once in their first seven FBS contests. "
