Cal Golden Bears Football Film Study: Breaking Down the Breakdowns

What happened to Cal’s secondary against the USC Trojans?

In this video, we’ll take an in-depth look at some of USC’s big passing plays from the second half. We’ll see that, while there were certainly some personnel/execution issues from the Bears’ secondary, there were also schematic factors at play that served to create those isolations. Finally, we’ll see that Cal’s best defense might be to just man-up with their CB’s on the outside. This could be relevant as they prepare to face the Stanford Cardinal this weekend.
