BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -Redshirt freshman Kevin Riley started at quarterback in place of injured Nate Longshore for No. 2 California on Saturday against Oregon State.
Longshore sprained his right ankle late in Cal's last game, a win at Oregon on Sept. 29. He returned to practice on Thursday but did not start for the Golden Bears in their first game since reaching No. 2 in the rankings.
Riley was one of the top quarterbacks in the country coming out of Portland, Ore., two years ago. He has thrown only three passes - all incompletions - this year in place of Longshore.
Longshore has completed 63.8 percent of his passes this season for 1,137 yards and seven touchdowns.
