BERKELEY, Calif. — If it’s possible for a highly regarded defensive player to have a breakout game, then a pair of Cougars accomplished the feat on Saturday. Defensive tackles Kalafitoni Pole and Ioane Gauta led a defensive charge that saw Cal’s Bear Raid offense held to just 20 offensive points, including 14 on a pair of long passes because of breakdowns in the Cougars secondary.

Pole and Gauta held the Golden Bears to just 79 net rushing yards, and piled up some impressive individual statistics. Gauta sacked Cal quarterback Jarred Goff twice, his first two solo sacks of the season. Pole recovered his first two fumbles of the season and forced one as well.
