Cal is known for throwing the football, but the Golden Bears were able to run the ball for big yardage against Oregon State on Saturday.

The Beavers struggled to stop Daniel Lasco, who hit on outside runs and piled up 188 yards and three touchdowns.

Cal finished with 269 yards and four scores on the ground.

“We’ve just got to own the edge a little bit,” OSU defensive lineman Dylan Wynn said. “We’ve just always focused on the middle of our defense being sacred and they’ve taken advantage of being able to bust them outside.

“Really, it’s more of the second-effort by the running backs that’s killing us. We need to get more bodies on the ball and shut down and make those plays. Those big open-field plays and those tackles just got to be done on the first hit.”
