Cal vs. ASU stats: Bears surrender 30+ point 4th quarter for second time in three seasons

NCAA Football: California at Arizona State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Cal has now surrendered 67 points in their last two trips to the deserts of Arizona. Cal conceded a flabbergasting 36 points in Tucson in their disastrous 49-45 defeat against the Wildcats in 2014 and tonight gave up 31 points in Tempe in losing to Arizona State.

Cal is now the only team in FBS to give up 30+ points in the 4th quarter in the last five years. And now they’ve gone and done it twice more than everyone else!

The Cal-ASU fourth quarter and the Cal-Arizona fourth quarter are also two of the the highest-scoring 15 minute stanzas in Golden Bear history. Cal and ASU combined for 45 points in the fourth quarters (14 Cal, 31 ASU), trailing 56 at Washington State in 2014 (3rd quarter), and 50 from Cal-Arizona 2014 (4th quarter).

Another annoying stat regarding Cal’s futility in the state of Arizona—in the past decade, the Bears have had the lead in seven contests against Arizona and ASU in Tucson and Tempe respectively at the half. They’ve won all but one.

Finally, this dispiriting stat.

Other quick postgame notes.

Quarterback Davis Webb completed 32-of-56 passes for 478 yards, 5 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Webb has now thrown for 18 touchdown passes and 1,837 yards in his first four games at Cal. Webb has passed for at least 400 yards in three of four games this season; the only time he did not meet the total was in the win over Texas when he finished with 396 yards through the air.

Chad Hansen ended the night with 10 catches for 110 yards and a touchdown, his fourth-straight 100-yard receiving performance. He now has 50 receptions on the season.
