Update

California University's football team lost to Bloomsburg at Adamson Stadium in an NCAA Division II first-round playoff game on Nov. 20. The final score was 28-26.

Wide receiver Chedrick Cherry caught his second touchdown pass, a 28-yard scoring reception with 51 seconds remaining, but the Vulcans were unable to make the 2-point conversion. Bloomsburg recovered the on-sides kick to preserve the win.

The third seed in Super Region One, Cal finishes the 2010 season with a 10-2 overall record.
