No. 8 Washington State didn't just lose, it was dominated by California

The Golden Bears are stuck in a five-way tie for 121st in the FBS with 14 turnovers lost and their quarterback is throwing an interception for nearly every touchdown and he's being sacked 3.8 times per game.

While he didn't stick the landing - and, reasonably so, considering the mass of chunky football players in his landing spot - the athleticism to get into the air was wild.

Cal was just 1-52-1 against top 10 teams since 1978 with the only win coming over No. 3 Southern California in 2003 before breaking through against mistake-prone Washington State.

The highlight reel-worthy play dashed WSU's slim hopes of a comeback as the Golden Bears took a 27-3 lead with 13:10 left in the game, and never looked back.

Washington State: Falk entered the game with two interceptions in 262 passes before throwing five against the Bears.

By that point, the Cougars' defense was gassed after spending most of the night on its heels because WSU couldn't get anything going on offense. But they couldn't keep covering for the offense all night long.

California: The Bears were held to minus-14 yards rushing in the first half before wearing down the Cougars behind bruising Vic Enwere.

The blowout loss ends a hot 6-0 start for Mike Leach's side and comes as part of a rough second half of the season that sees them hit the road in five of their final seven. As such, the ball was spotted at the Cougars' 45-yard line, and the Golden Bears immediately took advantage by driving it right down to the 1-yard line. This one was a tipped shovel pass picked off by Cal's Raymon Davison.

After Falk's first interception ended WSU's opening drive, the Cougars' next offensive drive stalled on the Cal 32-yard line, which, ordinarily, wouldn't have mattered because senior kicker Erik Powell was a flawless 9-for-9 on field goals over the last two weeks, and had only missed one kick all year. Eight minute field goal drives.

Opponents are managing just 4.47 yards per game against WSU, which has 21 sacks and 49 tackles for loss. Mitchell Cox's punt traveled one yard, setting up a Cal touchdown as time expired in the first half.
