California is out to claim its first road win of the season up on the Palouse against struggling Washington State.

PULLMAN, Wash. - California (2-4, 1-2 Pac-12) is in the Pacific Northwest to take on Washington State (2-4, 0-3 Pac-12) Saturday night (7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Network)

10:43 p.m. - Anderson with his second rushing touchdown of the evening, and this one seems like it is over.

Cal 31, WSU 10 with 9:12 left in the fourth quarter

I'm about to head down to the field for post-game interviews, so check back late Saturday night/early Sunday morning for complete coverage of the game.

10:22 p.m. - Vincenzo D'Amato hit on a career-long 52-yard field goal, but WSU is driving as we are about to start the final 15 minutes.

Cal 24, WSU 10 at the end of the third quarter
9:50 p.m. - Maynard scores on a short keeper after Cal receives the kickoff to start the second half.

Cal 21, WSU 3 in the third quarter

9:19 p.m. - Cal leads WSU, 14-3, at the end of the first half. C.J. Anderson was hit on the knee on the last play of the half, but was able to walk to the locker room on his own without any apparent difficulty.

Keenan Allen was also shaken up, but returned a few plays later.

FYI: I'll be writing during the second half, so I can get out of here at a reasonable hour and updates may be sporadic going forward.

8:52 p.m. - Cal drives 75 yards with authority, scoring on a four-yard run by C.J. Anderson.

Credit to Maynard for shaking off that last interception. He has really done a nice job of bouncing back from adversity these last two games.

Cal 14, WSU 3 with 6:35 left in the second quarter

8:44 p.m. - After running six plays inside the 10-yard line, WSU settles for a 20-yard field goal from Andrew Furney.

Just an ugly game with too many turnovers and video reviews so far.

Cal 7, WSU 3 with 10:14 left in the second quarter

8:11 p.m. - Keenan Allen embarrasses two Cougar defenders in the open field for a 69-yard touchdown.

Cal 7, WSU 0 with 5:55 left in the first quarter

7:51 p.m. - Steve Williams with the interception in the back of the end zone, but Pac-12 officials need replay to make the call. WSU quarterbacks have now been picked off 13 times this season.

7:45 p.m. - Deja vu all over again, as Zach Maynard's first pass is picked off for the second consecutive week. It hit freshman Darius Powe right in the hands and bounced to WSU linebacker Cyrus Coen.

7:15 p.m. - FYI: The scoreboard here at Martin Stadium is broken, so you have have better awareness of the clock watching on TV than I will here in the venue.

6:50 - Update on the update: Marc Anthony just came out for warmups and is moving around without any noticeable troubles.

6:47 p.m. - Update: Marc Anthony is not with the defensive backs for early position drills.

6:24 p.m. - Some quick notes on the Cal/WSU series:
-Cal can tie its longest winning streak against the Cougars with a victory tonight. The Bears have claimed seven in a row from 2005-11, and would match its mark from 1920-29.

-Cal leads the series with 43 wins, 25 losses, and 5 ties.

-Cal's last loss in Pullman was in Sept. 2001, in which they fell 50-31.

6:14 p.m. - Defensive end Aaron Tipoti will be available to play, while Nick Forbes will start over Robert Mullins at one inside linebacker spot.

6:12 p.m. - Kameron Jackson will start at cornerback, but Marc Anthony (bruised knee) is available to play, per Cal sports information.

6:10 p.m. - The Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs will have scouts in attendance here tonight.

Could RG3 be throwing passes to Keenan Allen next season?

6:00 p.m. - I was just down on the field as a bunch of Cal players were getting loose, including most of the defensive backs, but did not see corner Marc Anthony (bruised knee). He may still be receiving treatment and getting taped up, but if he cannot go, it seriously taxes the Bears' depth in the secondary against an offense that lives on four and five wide-receiver sets.

5:15 p.m.- Good afternoon on a very pleasant afternoon at Martin Stadium. After seeing unrelenting grey clouds on the drive down from Spokane, blue skies have opened up and the temperature is crisp but pleasant.

Here's my CSD On The Scene, with some last-minute thoughts on tonight's game:
