The 3-4 Defense

I'm reading everywhere that Cal has the answer for the Ducks offense with it's 3-4 defense. Hunt talked about it a little, and Ted Miller's blog says "Masoli won't run wild vs. California's 3-4 defense". That's a pretty definitive statement. I looked up some stats in Cal's 2 losses:

Arizona - 179 yards and 3 rushing TD's allowed

Maryland - 141 yards and 3 rushing TD's allowed

Arizona (151 ypg) and Maryland (166.8 ypg) are the 57th and 44th, respectively, ranked rushing teams in the country. The Ducks (278.8 ypg) are the 5th ranked rushing team. Why is it so impossible to think that the Ducks, and CK, can't do the same thing Maryland and Arizona did?
