Safety Anthony Jefferson was pleased with his secondary’s performance in its 34-27 win over Utah, pointing out the unit’s physicality at the point of the ball. He wasn’t aware the Bruins had collected six interceptions until a while after the game, however.
“We’ve been a confident secondary,” said Jefferson, who had two picks. “I just think it’s another game. … We have to go out with the same mindset, the same mentality. If the ball’s in the air, we have to be ballhawks.”
He and his teammates will have plenty of chances on Saturday. Cal throws 55.0 times per game, first in the Pac-12 and second in the country.
“I think it’ll be another good challenge for us,” Jefferson said.
