WSU vs. Cal score update: Bears lead 7-0 after 1st quarter

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Upon further review, the first quarter of WSU's game against Cal is over.

The Washington State Cougars trail the California Bears 7-0 after the first quarter of Saturday's game.

WSU received the opening kickoff, but the offense promptly wen't three-and-out. WSU would get the ball right back, however, as Cyrus Coen picked off a tipped pass to set the Cougars up with good field position. After an Isiah Myers catch was upheld, WSU was setup with a 1st and 10 from the Cal 27-yardline. Connor Halliday was intercepted in the endzone on the very next play.

After a Cal three-and-out, the WSU offense got the ball for a third time. Halliday connected with Marquess Wilson on a 40-yard reception, but another Halliday interception gave the ball back to the Bears. Cal took a 7-0 lead on the next possession when Keenan Allen broke a few tackles and took a short pass 69 yards for the touchdown.

After starting 3-of-9 with two interceptions, Halliday headed to the bench in favor of Jeff Tuel. WSU again wen't three-and-out after Wilson dropped a third down pass. After doing a solid job of stopping the run on the first few possessions, the WSU defense was gashed on Cal's next possession. The Bears appeared in position to extend their lead but Anthony Carpenter intercepted Zach Maynard to give WSU the ball back.

Cal outgained WSU 161 to 101 in the first quarter.
