STANFORD, Calif. – Ty Montgomery matched a Stanford school record with five touchdowns, scoring his first four on as many touches to start the game, and the 10th-ranked Cardinal beat Bay Area rival California 63-13 on Saturday while also clinching a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with Oregon’s loss.

Kevin Hogan threw four of his five scoring passes to Montgomery, including a 9-yard completion just before halftime that put Stanford ahead 42-13. The Cardinal (9-2, 7-2 Pac-12) bounced back from last week’s loss at USC but needed No. 5 Oregon to lose one of its final two games to earn a spot in the conference championship. The Ducks lost 42-16 in Tucson, and Stanford’s fans led chants of “Arizona! Arizona!”

Hogan set career highs with 329 yards passing and the five TD passes.

Cal (1-11, 0-9) lost its 10th straight to finish new coach Sonny Dykes’ disappointing debut year.
