California overwhelms Colorado 52-7

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Kevin Riley threw four touchdown passes and California gave Colorado a rude welcome to what will be its new conference with a 52-7 victory Saturday.

Shane Vereen caught one touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Golden Bears (2-0) broke out to a 31-0 halftime lead in Colorado's first game against a Pac-10 team since announcing plans in June to join the conference.

With the Buffaloes (1-1) still in the Big 12 for at least one more season, this was a nonconference game and was nearly as lopsided as Cal's season-opening 52-3 victory over lower-division UC Davis last week.

Colorado had negative total yards after nearly 20 minutes, threw three interceptions, lost two fumbles and committed nine penalties on the way to a 13th straight road loss.
