CLEMSON, SC – The Cal Golden Bears dotted down 11 tries and held Clemson scoreless until the 80th minute to defeat the Tigers 71-5 Saturday on National Athletic Village Field in the quarterfinals of the Varsity Cup.

The Varsity Cup enters its quarterfinals and things get a little tougher for those who pulled out victories last week.
Here's a rundown of the Varsity Cup 1st round.
The Varsity Cup's 1st Round kicks off this weekend and in recent years we've seen a few surprises in this round.
While most would think that Cal and Central Washington are heavily favored to make the final (both teams get a bye this weekend), that doesn't mean all of the other games are foregone conclusions.
Here's what we think (Goff Rugby Report rankings in parentheses):
Life University has improved to 4-0 in the Mid-South Conference with a very convincing 81-12 victory over Clemson.
The Running Eagles got off to a quick start with tries from Harley Davidson, Zander van Schalkwyk, and freshman Ryan Rees. Clemson got a try back, but a quick-tap from emerging talent Harley Wheeler and then another try from van Schalkwyk made it 29-5 at halftime.
Lindenwood put an emphatic stamp on the Men's College bracket at the Las Vegas Invitational with a 29-0 shutout of Clemson in the final at Sam Boyd Stadium.
Lindenwood will play Clemson in the final of the Men’s College 7s at the Las Vegas Invitational.
Here's the latest from the CRC Qualifiers at the LVI.
Life University and Clemson claimed victories in Mid-South DIA action this weekend.
The Mid-South Conference is fully underway this weekend as four teams are in action.
Lindenwood is at Life and Davenport is at Clemson.
Life and Lindenwood are both coming off some confidence-boosting results.
The US Naval Academy's Varsity Cup buildup got a nice shot in the arm with two wins over the weekend.
Navy took on the Glendale men's club, and won 40-17.
It was what Head Coach Mike Flanagan called "a really good defensive effort coming off a hard, focused week."
