Tardy, a junior who rushed for a career-best 214 yards and two touchdowns on 37 carries in the Cougars' 27-7 victory over UCLA, will have surgery, coach Bill Doba said Thursday. Backup senior Kevin McCall, who gained 51 yards on 11 carries against UCLA, will start Saturday at California, Doba said.
Doba said it appeared the anterior cruciate ligament in Tardy's left knee was injured during a 51-yard TD run in the final minute of the game. After making a cut near midfield, Tardy raced down the left sideline for the score, but limped back to the bench.
Tardy has run for 676 yards this season.
