BERKELEY  (AP) — Sonny Dykes must be wondering what he has to do to shake California out of a losing streak that is now just shy of two months long.
Not even an improved effort from the Golden Bears’ defense — the team’s biggest weakness all season — was enough to stop the free-fall from reaching a new low.
Freshman quarterback Jared Goff passed for four touchdowns but was intercepted on consecutive drives in the second half, and California couldn’t stop Arizona quarterback B.J. Denker in a 33-28 loss to the Wildcats on Saturday.
At this rate, the Bears are going to need a little help and a lot of luck to avoid finishing with their worst record since going 1-10 in 2001.
LAWSON, SAN JOSE STATE TOP UNLV 34-24: LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jarrod Lawson ran for a career-high 187 yards and a touchdown as San Jose State topped UNLV 34-24 on Saturday.
San Jose State (5-3, 4-1 Mountain West) raced to an early 14-0 lead with touchdowns on its first two possessions. Lawson then added a 31-yard score in the second quarter as the Spartans took a 24-3 lead into halftime.
UNLV (5-4, 3-2) cut the lead to 24-17 late in the third but Thomas Tucker ran for a 37-yard touchdown with 10:49 to play to extend SJSU’s lead to 31-17. UNLV once again cut the deficit to 7 with eight minutes remaining but the Spartans responded with a drive that lasted over five minutes and culminated in a field goal.
SJSU finished with 312 yards rushing while UNLV managed just 86 yards on the ground.
CARR LEADS NO. 16 FRESNO ST. PAST NEVADA 41-23: FRESNO  (AP) — Another win, another school record, another step closer to a BCS bowl.
That’s becoming a familiar pattern for Derek Carr and Fresno State.
Carr threw for 487 yards to break the Fresno State career passing record and lead the 16th-ranked Bulldogs to eight straight wins to open the season for the first time since 1989 with a 41-23 victory over Nevada on Saturday night.
Two weeks after setting the school record for touchdown passes and completions at home, Carr added another mark as he makes his case alongside his older brother David as one of the top quarterbacks ever at Fresno State.
Carr threw three touchdown passes and ran for another to lead the way for the Bulldogs (8-0, 5-0 Mountain West).
MONTANA SURVIVES SACRAMENTO STATE IN OT, 51-48: SACRAMENTO  (AP) — Jordan Johnson connected with Ellis Henderson for a 25-yard touchdown in overtime to lead Montana over Sacramento State 51-48.
Johnson passed for 381 yards and two touchdowns to pace Montana (7-2, 4-2 Big Sky Conference), while Jordan Canada rushed for four touchdowns and 78 yards on 17 carries. Canada’s 1-yard plunge with 3:38 left in the game seemed to set the Grizzlies up for the win.
But Sacramento State (4-5, 3-2) tied it up with a 77 yard drive, culminated by Garrett Safron’s 5-yard TD toss to Cole Hikutini with 23 seconds remaining.
Safron ended the day 41 of 58 for 412 yards and 4 TDs, and ran for 93 yards and 2 TDs.
In overtime, the Hornets’ drive stalled at Montana’s 8-yard line, where Brad Cornish hit for a 25-yard field goal. On the Grizzlies’ first play in the extra session, Johnson found Henderson for the game-winner.
CAL POLY DEFEATS UC DAVIS 34-16: DAVIS  (AP) — Chris Brown rushed for three touchdowns to lead Cal Poly over UC Davis 34-16 Saturday night.
Brown, Cal Poly’s (4-5, 3-2 Big Sky Conference) quarterback, rushed for a career-high 195 yards on 21 carries. His 72-yard run set up a Kori Garcia 1-yard TD run.
Brown made five attempts passing while completing just one, a 15-yard connection that kept a fourth quarter drive alive. The drive eventually led to Brown’s 5-yard touchdown run to put the Mustangs up 27-16. He added another 5-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.
