Things chippy in Berkeley

How about all those smart guys getting mouthy before the Big Game even started!

The jawing cost Stanford receiver Jamal-Rashad Patterson, who was ejected for his involvement in a pregame altercation. That's even more of a blow with receiver Chris Owusu apparently out.

Then California fumbled a snap at its 26-yardline, which isn't a good way for quarterback Brock Mansion to get his legs under him.

Still, the Cal defense made a stand and the Cardinal had to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead.

Seemed like the Bears' defense has the same fire it had last week against Oregon. On the downside, it appears that cornerback Darian Hagan is out and Marc Anthony didn't start.
