No. 1 Oregon 15, California 13
Jeff Maehl caught a 29-yard touchdown pass and Oregon got stellar effort from its defense and a huge break on a missed field goal. Cliff Harris returned a punt 64 yards for the only touchdown in the first half by the Ducks (10-0, 7-0 Pac-10), who wobbled on the road to the BCS title game. Darron Thomas led a final drive that chewed up the last 9:32 after a stellar defensive effort by the Bears, who held the nation's most potent offense to a season-low in yards. Giorgio Tavecchio missed a 29-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for Cal that would have given the Golden Bears a 16-15 lead.
