Cal upsets Washington video highlights: Relive the lightning and the Bear thunder

Missed the game? Let’s get you caught up.

NCAA Football: California at Washington Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

The California Golden Bears defense set the tone in the first half—despite the offense producing only three points, the defense held the Washington Huskies to 10, ensuring that the Bears had a puncher’s chance in the last 30 minutes.

Cal defensive lineman Luc Bequette started with a sack! That’s my only football memory pre-rain delay.

Then there was lightning, and the three hour delay commenced.

At one point the power went off.

And plenty of Washington fans vacated.

The Cal band made the most of it.

Play then resumed!

Camryn Bynum got a huge interception with Washington threatening to score.

Cal also got a forced fumble from Evan Weaver.

Cal got its first touchdown of the game on their opening second half drive, capping off with Marcel Dancy getting his first score of the season!

On Cal’s next drive, Dancy got his second touchdown of the quarter, getting a huge block from his quarterback.

Washington eventually retook a 19-17 lead, and then Chase Garbers stepped up and delivered with a two-minute drill (including a huge break by Kekoa Crawford) to set up the game-winning field goal by Greg Thomas.

And the celebration began! At 1:30 AM. Never too late!
