EUGENE, Ore. – If Cal quarterback Jared Goff has any jitters about his first start on the road, he sure isn't showing it.
Goff was cool about playing No. 2 Oregon in what is sure to be a raucous atmosphere at Autzen Stadium on Saturday night, calling it just another game.
The freshman quarterback is having a sensational start to his college career, steering first-year Cal coach Sonny Dykes' "Bear Raid" offense. He leads the nation and the Pac-12 with an average of 435.3 yards passing.
On the other side will be Marcus Mariota, who is generating Heisman Trophy buzz this season.
Mariota is ranked fifth nationally with an average of 383.7 total offensive yards per game, guiding an offense averaging 61.3 points per game.
