Texas vs. Cal: Game Grades, Analysis for Longhorns and Bears

For the second year in a row, the California Golden Bears have emerged victorious from a shootout with Texas, topping the Longhorns 50-43 at home.

Quarterback Davis Webb and top target Chad Hansen led the upset of the No. 11 Horns, connecting 12 times for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Webb added two more scores, picking apart a clueless Texas secondary for much of the night.

As for the Longhorns, it will be a rough week of film review. Charlie Strong’s team held multiple double-digit leads on the evening but committed costly penalties in scoring territory and failed to capitalize on great games by running backs D’Onta Foreman and Chris Warren III.

The Horns may feel wronged by a controversial ruling on a dropped ball on Cal’s final drive, but they had their chances. Instead, Cal’s a winner, and Strong’s storybook start to the season has lost much of its luster.
