Jared Goff threw two touchdowns against Washington to tie the all-time career passing Cal touchdown record of 64 scores over two and a quarter years, matching Kyle Boller.
Goff's first beauty went to Bryce Treggs down the sideline to put Cal up 20-7 just before halftime.

Goff's second touchdown that tied the record went to Kenny Lawler to lift the Bears to what felt like a strong (hah) 27-7 lead. Goff only needs a touchdown next week against Washington State to break the record.

Goff's biggest play of the game wasn't even a pass though. It was his 4th down and 1 clinching run where he bounced off one tackler and stretched for the first down with under 2 minutes left that allowed Cal to kneel and clinch victory.

As good as Goff was, it was the Cal defense that made the biggest impact, forcing five turnovers on the game. That included a dominant performance from Kyle Kragen, who found his way into the UW backfield plenty.

The Damariay Drew clinching interception was the final capper, ending a potential Washington game-winning drive.
INTERCEPTED by @CalFootball! It's looking golden for the Bears in Seattle. Watch #CALvsUW: http://t.co/YfMNDWLu5w http://t.co/CuZT04uTAQ— Pac-12 Networks (@Pac12Networks) September 27, 2015
How important is it to have a defense that makes plays? Cal forced 13 turnovers in 2013 (116th in FBS) and 17 turnovers in 2014 (94th). In 2015 through 4 games? Cal has forced 14 turnovers. 1st in FBS.
