The straight set win (25-20, 27-25, 25-20) also marks the fourth straight year the Nittany Lions have beaten the Bears in the NCAA tournament.

Blair Brown led Penn State with 18 kills, 10 digs and four blocks at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

Behind senior setter Carli Lloyd, the AVCA Division I national player of the year, Cal had its best season in program history and played in its first title match.
