Washington beats California 21-13
WASHINGTON 21, CALIFORNIA 13

By JOSH DUBOW

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- After going more than a year without a
road win, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian had his players wear
suits for the plane ride to drive home the message that this was
a business trip.



The play on the field may not have looked as good as the players
did on the plane but the result did.



Bishop Sankey ran for a career-high 189 yards and two touchdowns
and Washington overcame four turnovers and 12 penalties for its
first road win in 13 months, 21-13 over California on Friday
night.



"That was the whole message," quarterback Keith Price said.
"We're not here for vacation. A lot of guys were home back here
playing. That's not what we were here for. We were here to get a
win and we did that."



Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught eight passes for 154 yards and a
touchdown for the Huskies (5-4, 3-3 Pac-12), who had been
outscored 145-41 in three road games this season and had lost
six straight away games since beating Utah on Oct. 1, 2011.



The Golden Bears (3-7, 2-5) lost for the fourth time in six
games at their renovated stadium and are assured of missing out
on a bowl for the second time in three seasons. That will only
raise more questions about the status of coach Jeff Tedford, who
has a 23-25 record since the start of the 2009 season.



"It is not something we're used to," Tedford said. "You work
very hard, so it is always disappointing to not be able to play
in the postseason. It does not happen to us often and it's not a
good feeling."



Cal played the game without injured star receiver Keenan Allen
and then lost starting quarterback Zach Maynard to a left knee
injury late in the fourth quarter. Allen might not be back this
season, while Maynard is undergoing an MRI and his status is
unknown.



Backup Allan Bridgford drove the Bears to the 25 with just over
a minute left but he missed C.J. Anderson down the sideline on
fourth-and-5 to end Cal's hopes and send the Huskies home happy.



"I think it's big from a psyche standpoint that we're able to
get on the plane and have success and feel good about winning a
ballgame not, `Woe is us, woe is me.' That takes a toll. At the
end of the day, we found a way to win."



Each team had four turnovers in a sloppy game, including three
lost fumbles in a span of six plays early in the fourth quarter.
An interception on the next drive helped seal the win for
Washington.



Shaq Thompson intercepted a pass by Maynard near midfield and
returned it 33 yards to the Cal 28. Making that play even more
painful for the Bears was the fact that Thompson originally
committed to play at Cal before changing his mind when top
recruiter Tosh Lupoi left for Washington just weeks before
signing day.



Sankey ran four straight plays and scored from 1-yard out to
give the Huskies a 21-13 lead. Washington needs just one win in
its final three games against the bottom teams in the
conference, Utah, Colorado and Washington State, to become bowl
eligible.



"We knew we had to close it out and we knew we were on their
side of the field," Sankey said. "It was on the o-line's back
and on the running game and I feel like we did a great job with
that."



Cal settled for field goals twice in the third quarter after
driving deep into Washington territory, which proved costly when
Seferian-Jenkins made a leaping grab over the smaller Steve
Williams for a 29-yard score on third-and-goal to give the
Huskies a 14-13 lead in the final minute of the third quarter.



The score remained there when Cal failed to capitalize on
another good chance. Maynard overthrew an open Chris Harper in
the end zone and D'Amato missed wide right from 41 yards, ending
a streak of 11 straight makes.



"I don't think we executed all of our plays like we were
supposed to," Harper said. "We had a couple of drops and
fumbles. All of the turnovers, we need to try to eliminate them.
When we're close to the zone we need to have the mentality that
we have to get in."



Both teams had little trouble moving the ball in the first half
but struggled to get it into the end zone. Washington scored on
Sankey's 4-yard run on its second drive of the game but came up
empty on three other trips into Cal territory. Sankey was
stopped on fourth-and-1 twice in the first half and Price was
intercepted by Nick Forbes in the closing seconds on third-and-5
from the 9.



The Bears also squandered good scoring chances with Isi Sofele
losing a fumble at the Washington 21 on their first drive of the
game and Brendan Bigelow losing a fumble at the 11 on the second
drive.



Cal scored late in the second quarter on Harper's 14-yard
reverse on a drive extended by a personal foul on Danny Shelton
on third-and-long.
