Final score: Utah Utes 35, California Golden Bears 0.

This is the first time Cal has been shutout since 1999, when they lost to future title contender Nebraska. Maybe Utah will win the Pac-12 and make us feel a tiny bit better abou this one?

Cal did not cross midfield after their first drive and punted 9 times.

The Cal defense surrendered five touchdown drives in a row.

Cal had six first downs and 83 total yards.

The stalwart Cal defense surrendered over nine yards per play in the competitive portion of the game. It was an astonishingly bad performance from the team’s most consistent unit.

It’s one of the most complete drubbings in Golden Bear history.

Cal has gone from 4-0 to 4-4 in a blink of an eye, and the season seems to be teetering on the brink. Where do the Bears go from here after the bye week?
