Cal's defense rises up, hands USC fourth straight loss

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Trey Paster scored on a 55-yard fumble return in the second quarter, California's defense made a clutch stop near the goal line, and the Golden Bears held off Southern California 24-14 in the season finale for both teams.

Christopher Brooks added a pair of short scoring runs on a day when Cal's offense struggled reaching the end zone to help the Golden Bears (5-7, 4-5 Pac-12) to their first home win against the Trojans since 2003.

"It means a lot to end the season with a victory," said Cal quarterback Chase Garbers, who was 18 of 21 for 177 yards. "Just the way this whole season has gone and what our team has done, t shows how big of a family we are. Had some ups and downs but came out on top tonight. The defense played lights out."
