Jared Goff expected to be leading Cal again as Bears host Washington St

Jared Goff admitted his confidence was a bit shaken when the California freshman quarterback was benched in the first quarter of last week's loss to No. 2 Oregon.

Goff, who began his college career by becoming just the second player in school history to throw for more than 400 yards in back-to-back games, fumbled twice in the rain and completed only 3 of 7 pass attempts before Golden Bears coach Sonny Dykes made the switch to redshirt freshman Zach Kline.

The two quarterbacks split time with Cal's first-team offense in practice this week, but Dykes said Goff will be back in the lineup Saturday when the Bears (1-3, 0-1 Pac-12) host Washington State (3-2, 1-1).
