- Kekoa Crawford took a hiatus from football after transferring from Michigan. Now he is at Cal and looking like a promising new receiver.
- Ben Hawk Schrider not only grew up a Cal fan but got to hang out with greats like Aaron Rodgers as a kid. Now he is a grad transfer on this year’s team.
- In 2017 and 2018, the Cal offense failed to score a touchdown against Washington. The Huskies lost most of their starting defenders due to graduation, but still looked pretty good against Eastern Washington. It will still be a tough test for the Bears.
- Scout listed the Cal secondary and Washington QB Jacon Eason as one of the top national matchups in the country for this weekend.
