Goff added national recognition with a Manning Award Star of the Week also for the second time in three weeks as well as an honorable mention selection for National Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards.

Goff broke his own single-game school record with 542 passing yards while adding five touchdown throws and completing 30-of-51 passes as the Bears rallied from a 24-3 second-quarter deficit to defeat the Sun Devils. Goff led Cal scoring drives on each of the Bears’ final six possessions including five consecutive touchdowns with the final four on his scoring throws. On the final drive of the game, Goff led the Bears on a 69-yard drive to the Arizona State nine-yard line to set up Matt Anderson’s 26-yard game-winning field goal with no time remaining on the clock that sent Kabam Field at California Memorial Stadium into a frenzy. The comeback was Cal’s biggest since the Bears rallied from a 21-0 second-quarter deficit in a 42-36 victory over Air Force at the Armed Forces Bowl on December 31, 2007. In addition to breaking his own single-game school record for passing yards, Goff added a single-game school mark with 573 yards of total offense and rushed for a career-high 31 yards including a career-long 20-yard run. Goff also surpassed his own single-season records for passing yards (4,252), touchdown passes (37) and total offense (4,260) in the contest while becoming the ninth quarterback in Pac-12 history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season. Goff has completed 316-of-492 passes over 12 starts and games played in 2015 for a 156.36 passer efficiency rating that currently ranks second on Cal’s all-time single-season list. Goff leads the Pac-12 and ranks third in the nation in touchdown passes, while ranking second in the conference and fourth nationally in passing yards and passing yards per game (354.3). He is also second in the league and in the top seven nationally in total offense (355.0, #5 NCAA), completions per game (26.33, #5 NCAA), points responsible for (230, #7 NCAA) and points responsible for per game (19.2, #7 NCAA).

Post Game Thoughts: Arizona State

You know, we hadn't really had a true dose of Bear Raid madness since that goofy game down in Austin, so I suppose we all should have expected something roughly this absurd, right?
