Cal's situation is now desperate

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Is this over already?

And is it about to get ugly?

USC's Damian Williams' 66-yard punt return for a TD makes it 17-0 early in the second quarter.

California quarterback Kevin Riley actually started fairly well, but that last possession he -- and the offense -- were completely out of sync. Riley didn't just throw three incompletions. He threw three bad incompletions.

Since winning at Minnesota, Cal has been outscored 59-3.

Gut check time.
