California DE Jordan makes most of his first start

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

While California surely isn't happy that it lost defensive end Rulon Davis to a leg injury a week ago, sophomore Cameron Jordan had an impressive debut stepping in for Davis on Saturday against Arizona State.

Jordan recorded two sacks and another tackle for a loss among his eight tackles and forced a fumble in the Bears' 24-14 victory.

Jordan, a native of Chandler, Ariz., had one sack last year as a true freshman.

His bloodlines are outstanding. His father, Steve Jordan, played 13 years for the Minnesota Vikings and was selected to the Pro Bowl six times.
