The Bears were worst in the nation last year with 31 turnovers, negating all the help provided by an opportunistic defense that ranked sixth with 28 takeaways. Cal threw multiple interceptions in six games, losing all of them, while finishing 7-0 when throwing one or fewer interceptions.

Making matters worse was the fact that the turnovers on offense weren’t a reflection of a unit that took risks that led to big plays. That led to a unit that scored just 21.5 points per game, ranking last in the conference and fourth worst in the nation among Power 5 teams.


If the offense can improve just a little bit, the Bears could be a dangerous team a year after upsetting Pac-12 champion Washington and ending a 14-game losing streak to USC.
