SEATTLE, Wash. - Louis Rankin ran 21 times for 224 yards and a touchdown in less than three quarters Saturday as the Washington Huskies upset California 37-23.
Rankin's second 200-yard day in three weeks came despite not playing the final 1½ quarters, apparently because of an injury. His backup, freshman Brandon Johnson, ran for 121 yards on 23 carries.
Washington was missing its team leader, quarterback Jake Locker, because of a neck sprain. But his backup, Carl Bonnell, completed 7 of 19 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown.
Washington stomped on Cal for 334 rushing yards as the Golden Bears suffered their fifth loss in six games.
Cal quarterback Nate Longshore, the target of intense criticism after last week's loss to USC, completed 20 of 28 throws for 236
yards and three first-half touchdowns, with one interception.
