Cal football named their five team captains prior to their trip down under.
- Quarterback Davis Webb. Not a huge surprise. A graduate transfer from Texas Tech, Webb has looked like he’ll be a steady enough replacement for Jared Goff in his one year with the Bears.
- Linebacker Ray Davison. Davison will be one of two returning linebackers and will be critical in keeping Cal’s defense moving in the right direction.
- Defensive lineman James Looney. Looney anchors the pillar of the Cal defense this season up front, which will have to step up with an inexperienced linebacker corps behind them.
- Defensive back Darius Allensworth. Allensworth is quite possibly the best defender on the entire team this season. If he can shut down his side of the field, Cal will have a better pass defense this season.
- Offensive lineman Steven Moore. Moore will be protecting Webb on the edge and anchors one of the most experienced Golden Bear offensive lines in recent memory.
Cal boarded their flights to Australia last night, and there’s a good chance they’re still in transit as you’re reading this.
