I am Malachi and this is Sports 101! I will be educating you about sports and issues surrounding players and teams that we either love or hate. To the sports world, where would we be without sports? We probably would be a third world country living as savages!

No Honey For Golden Bears! The Cougars Stole It! 

Jarod Goff
The defense of the California Golden Bears football team continues to be a liability as they fell to Washington State Cougars 44-22.The Bears gave up 522 yards passing, as Washington State's quarterback Connor Holliday had the second best passing game in their school history.
In every game this year, the Bears' defense have giving up over 500 yards in total offense. In defense for the Bears' defense, they loss their best defensive player in defensive end Chris Mccain to suspension and played with only three healthy corner backs.They lost corner back Stefan McClure and Joel Willis during the game as well as linebacker Jalen Jefferson. Safety Alex Logan retired from the game due to medical reasons. There is nothing that demonstrates the Cal's defense will get better this year. Quarterbacks are putting up record numbers against them and all coach Sonny Dykes can do is build from the pieces that he has in place. Dykes recognizes the state of the morale of his team. “When you are a very fragile team without a lot of confidence it probably has a big impact on you,” Dykes said.
Freshman quarterback Jared Goff continues to show flashes of brilliance and head scratching mistakes. He threw for 489 yards for his third 400 yard passing game this season and wide receiver Chris Harper had 13 receptions for 216 yards and a touchdown.

Turn Over The Texans!

Tramaine Brock's Interception

The San Francisco 49ers abused the Houston Texans in Candle Stick Park 34-3, thank to Tramaine Brock's two interceptions.Early in the game Brock read Texan's quarterback Matt Schaub's eyes and jumped on a pass attended for Texan's wide receiver Andre Johnson, intercepted the pass and ran it in for a pick six.

49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick did not have a good game, throwing for 113 yards and a touchdown. However,the running game got going as Frank Gore ran for 81 yards and a touchdown, and Anthony Dixon ran for a touchdown also.

The 49ers defense created five turnovers, which lead to Texans' quarterback Schaub being pulled out of the game. "That's what we're striving for, turnovers," Brock commented. "We got them, I just did my job and tried to step up.
