CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — There could be a lot of finality for California at No. 15 Oregon State on Saturday night, and not just because it’s the Golden Bears’ last game in a disappointing season.
The game could close the chapter on the 11-season tenure of Cal head coach Jeff Tedford, who has come under increasing scrutiny this season. It could also be the culmination of the wide receiver Keenan Allen’s college career.
For certain it’s the finale for senior quarterback Zach Maynard. But what’s sadder is that Maynard and his half-brother Allen won’t even play — both have been ruled out because of injuries.
It’s almost a fitting end for a team that went just 3-8 overall this season and just 2-6 in the Pac-12 conference.
