The Golden Bears have been through adversity all season, being in this game was an accomplishment in itself, but that didn’t stop them from playing their hearts out. Led by Connor Mcclellan at running back, being the key for the Golden Bear offense in this game. Connor had two touchdowns and accounted for 95 yards on the ground in regulation, keeping them in the fight to the end.
