Cal Names Goff Starter ... Again
Goff started the team's first seven games and ranks in the top 10 nationally in completions per game (6th, 26.6 cpg), passing yards (7th, 2,256) and passing yards per game (10th, 322.3 ypg). He is also third in the Pac-12 in passing yards per game. Goff has completed 186-of-308 passes (60.4%) with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions for a 127.01 passer efficiency rating over his first seven collegiate contests. Goff set Cal's single-game record when he threw for 504 yards against Washington State on October 5.
Goff has been lifted three times late in games in favor of redshirt freshman Zach Kline, who has gone 31-for-57 for 253 yards with three interceptions and three touchdowns. Goff has seen his QB efficiency rating drop from 134.36 over his first three games to 118.14 over the past four, with two picks, two TD passes, eight sacks and four fumbles -- all lost.
Kline will be listed as the backup quarterback on the team's depth chart for the Washington game.
The starting quarterback position had been listed as an "or" between Goff and Kline on the team's previous depth chart released Tuesday.
