Jaydon Grant caught an interception and Hamilcar Rashed, Jr. sacked Cal quarterback Spencer Brasch on the final play of the game to secure to road victory for Oregon State.
Head coach Jonathan Smith is expecting another fourth quarter battle in Saturday's game.
Oregon State is still looking for their first win of the 2020 football season. They are currently 0-2.
