After becoming the latest victim of the Oregon Ducks' second-half offensive onslaught, the California Golden Bears (3-2 overall, 0-2 Pac-12) will look to rebound in a Thursday night game against the USC Trojans (4-1, 2-1). California is riding a two-game losing streak and is hoping AT&T Park can serve as a home away from home as Cal tries to climb out of the Pac-12 North basement.
