Cal Football: 5 Keys to the Game vs. Southern Utah

Last week, Cal started off its 2012 football season with a disappointing loss after opening the revamped Memorial Stadium with hopes for success.

The Golden Bears didn't look terrible in the game, but still had a few key problems. Mainly, the team continued to go to the passing game when they were having a lot of success on the ground.

Starting quarterback Zach Maynard was also suspended for the first quarter of the game because he missed a tutoring session with a coach earlier this summer. That was a huge factor since he ended up throwing two touchdown passes and no interceptions.

Despite the disappointment, Cal will have to look ahead to the next game on the schedule. Fortunately for them, Week 2 features a matchup against the Southern Utah Thunderbirds, a Division I-AA school.

While this game should be easy for Berkeley, a few key things have to happen for them to be successful and this article will go through each of those.
