Tomorrow’s game will be the final home contest for Cal and the annual Joe Roth Memorial Game, honoring the Golden Bear quarterback who died of cancer at the age of 21 in 1977.
Roth and tailback Chuck Muncie combined to provide the offense to beat USC, 28-14, on Nov. 1, 1975. That Cal victory snapped the Trojans’ 28-game conference unbeaten streak, which began with a 28-0 win at Berkeley in 1971.
USC’s current win streak over the Bears is nine straight games since the triple-overtime loss in 2003. Cal has also lost 11 straight Pac-12 games.
