Cal cautious

Matching results against expectations, Cal arguably had the worst week of any Pac-12 team. Debuting at home in a remodeled Memorial Stadium, the Golden Bears lost 31-24 to Nevada.

Now, Cal, with coach Jeff Tedford considered to be on the hot seat, will look for its first win of the season against Southern Utah, an FCS team that it should have no trouble dispatching. However, Tedford spoke highly and cautiously of the Thunderbirds, who lost to Utah State 34-3 last week.

"They have a lot of good players on their team," Tedford said. "They have a great quarterback [Brad Sorensen] who can throw it all over the yard."

It will be Southern Utah’s first matchup with a Pac-12 team, but, Tedford said, "We’re in no position to overlook anyone after losing last week."
