Here are three positive things for Cal

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Mom used to say if you can't say something nice, don't say anything.

She would not be able to blog about California tonight.

But here are three things that Cal fans can nibble on:

1. Bears fans are good fans. This place is still full, even entering the fourth quarter with USC up 23-0.

2. The defense has played fairly well. USC has 350 yards, but the Bears have mostly kept the Trojans out of the end zone. Recall that one TD came on a punt return.

3. Cal is still playing hard. It starts the fourth quarter with a first down on the Trojans' 30.
