Ray Hudson named Pac-12 special teams player of the week!
Hudson blocked the first Oregon punt of the game on the first possession of the contest and the first time he was ever on a punt block/return special teams unit in his entire football playing career to give Cal the ball on the Oregon 38-yard line. The blocked punt led to a Cal touchdown and 7-0 lead when Jared Goff found Stephen Anderson in the end zone on a seven-yard scoring pass on the ensuing Cal drive.
Hudson also played a part in Cal’s second blocked punt of the contest when he recovered a punt blocked by Hamilton Anoa’i on the first Oregon drive of the third quarter and advanced it two yards. The second blocked punt gave Cal the ball at the Oregon 45-yard line and also led to a touchdown when Cal marched down the field and scored on a Vic Enwere nine-yard run to cut the Oregon lead to 31-21.
