  Christopher Brown Jr. had never been called into a postgame press conference before so the California running back needed a little help to get settled in. The way Brown ran the ball in the Golden Bears season opener, he might as well get used to it. Brown rushed for a career-high 197 yards and a touchdown on 36 carries in his first start, and California overcame a sloppy first half and beat UC Davis 27-13 on Saturday. "We were trained for this and we were overly prepared for this," Brown said. "That played a big role in how many touches we get, how many plays we get. It's really the guys up front that made the holes. I just ran. They blocked."

Brown, a seldom-used backup to Patrick Laird last season, provided the biggest spark and became the first Cal running back to go over 100 yards in his first start since Jahvid Best in 2008. "We knew Chris would get the ball a lot," Bears coach Justin Wilcox said. "That's what we expect of him. He's a big, physical guy and this is his type of game. Give it to him and let him break tackles. Probably more touches and more yards than he had all last year. He's been preparing for this." That was critical on a day when Cal's passing game was hit-and-miss for most of the afternoon. Quarterback Chase Garbers shrugged off two turnovers and completed 16 of 28 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns, both to Kekoa Crawford. Greg Thomas kicked a pair of field goals, including a career-best 47-yarder, as the Golden Bears won their third consecutive opener under Wilcox. - AP College Football
