Cal already bucked the trend of picking captains for the season—instead using three game captains—and it’s time for a fresh new bucking. There will only be two game captains this week:
- Redshirt-junior C Addison Ooms
- Senior ILB Devante Downs
In addition to earning national recognition for his play, Downs is earning recognition from the team—this is his third time as game captain; Downs was also a captain for Cal–Oregon last week and for Cal–Weber State.
