Partway through the first quarter of the California Golden Bears' battle with the Texas Longhorns, a record was broken.
We've got a brand new record holder, ladies and gentlemen. #GOBEARS! pic.twitter.com/8vQo4Wxttd— Cal Bears (@CalAthletics) September 19, 2015
In the end, that wasn't the only record to fall yesterday. In just three games into his third year, Jared Goff is the new holder of three Cal career records.
Goff set three records tonight - career passing yards (8,379), total offense (8,266) and completions (704).— Cal Football Notes (@calfbnotes) September 20, 2015
Troy Taylor was the previous holders of all three of those records with marks of 8,126, 8,236, and 683.
You can hear from Goff himself from his post-game press conference:

- Annia Mejia attributes the Bears' early success to communication and backfield leadership

- Check out post-game interviews from Coach Sonny Dykes, CB Darius White, and RBs Khalfani Muhammad and Vic Enwere:
(To help settle the missed/tipped debate, White alleges that he tipped the kick and presumably credits maligned special teams coordinator Mark Tommerdahl with teaching kick-blocking technique.)
- And, as a result of our glorious victory:
