As it turns out, California freshman quarterback Jared Goff set the Bears’ single-game record for passing yards against Washington State this past Saturday, the school announced on Sunday.
A third-quarter play originally was credited as a 15-yard run by Chris Harper but it was actually a 15-yard completion. Because of the change, Goff now has 504 yards against the Cougars, topping the previous mark of 503 set by Pat Barnes in 1996 against Arizona State.
Despite having the wheels come off his bike against Oregon, Goff has been very impressive so far this year. He’s currently third in the nation in passing yards per game at 360 per, which puts him on pace to shatter the school single-season passing yardage mark of 3,499 set by Barnes in ’96.
He should be the Bears’ all-time leading passer by his third season. Now if only Sonny Dykes can put together a decent defense, Goff might win a few games, too.
