Remound Wright ran for four touchdowns, and Stanford used a smothering defensive effort to rout rival California 38-17 on Saturday and clinch bowl eligibility.
Blake Martinez intercepted two passes and forced a fumble as the Cardinal (6-5, 4-4 Pac-12) created five turnovers. Stanford beat the Golden Bears (5-6, 3-6) for the fifth straight year in the Big Game, parading around Memorial Stadium with the Axe in front of an emptying crowd of 56,483.
Jared Goff tied Cal's record for touchdowns and broke his own school record for yards passing in a season but had little to show for his milestones. He threw for 182 yards, one TD and two interceptions.
Cal can still clinch bowl eligibility at home against BYU next week.
