  12/01/19 - Chase GarbersrSo/2022, California, 6-2, 205 (DS#12 QB) + More +

  Chase Garbers and California were determined not to rest on their laurels after last week's win over Stanford in The Big Game. The Golden Bears showed no signs of a letdown as they defeated UCLA 28-18 on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl. Cal (7-5, 4-5 Pac-12) was led by Christopher Brown Jr.'s 111 yards rushing and two touchdowns while the defense had a season-high six sacks and held the Bruins to 58 rushing yards. "Many people might have seen this as a trap game coming off the win over Stanford, but I think we came out and imposed our will on them. We had that mindset during practice all week," said Garbers, who completed 17 of 29 passes for 230 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Brown - who had his second 100-yard game of the season — scored both of his touchdowns in the second half as the Golden Bears completed the regular season with wins in three of their last four. Cal led 14-10 at halftime before they went up by two scores with 5:38 remaining in the third quarter on Brown's 1-yard run up the middle. After UCLA responded with Joshua Kelley's 1-yard TD run and Dorian Thompson-Robinson's pass to Delon Hurt for the 2-point conversion, Brown got another huge hole and went 11 yards to give the Bears a 28-18 advantage 7 seconds into the fourth quarter. - California/AP College Football

  2019 BURLSWORTH TROPHY FINALIST: Ashtyn Davis, University of California, Safety/Kick Returner, SR - Davis has recorded 47 tackles this season with 27 solo stops. He has also forced two fumbles, intercepted a pass and returned 12 kicks for 149 yards. Davis, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, is a four-time All-American in the 60 meter hurdles indoors and the 110 meter hurdles outdoors. He was a second-team midseason All-American selection by Athlon Sports and The Athletic and Davis is on the watch list for the Paul Hornung Award, given annually to the nation's most versatile player. Davis walked on the Cal track team and after several unsuccessful attempts to contact the football staff, joined the team in the spring of 2016. He was named first-team All-Pac 12 by the Associated Press, Athlon Sports and Pro Football Focus in 2018, recording 56 tackles and an interception with an 89-yard kick return. Davis was recognized as Cal's top special team's player in 2016 and 2017. - Burlsworth Trophy

  11/23/19 - Chase GarbersrSo/2022, California, 6-2, 205 (DS#12 QB) + More +

  It took nearly a decade, a heads-up play by oft-injured California quarterback Chase Garbers and one final stand by the Golden Bears defense to make it happen. The Axe is headed back to Berkeley. Garbers scored on a 16-yard scramble with 1:19 remaining in the fourth quarter, lifting California to a 24-20 win over Stanford in the 122nd annual Big Game on Saturday. "We finally got it back," Garbers said of The Axe, which has been in Stanford's possession since 2009. Garbers, who was knocked out of last week's loss to USC, passed for 285 yards and a touchdown and ran for 72 yards on 13 carries. His final run came after he overthrew Nikko Remigio in the end zone and helped the Golden Bears (6-5, 3-5 Pac-12) end a nine-game losing streak to their San Francisco bay rivals. "I was just excited I had a rushing touchdown" Garbers said.

Garbers wasn't even cleared to play against Stanford until late Thursday evening. He had suffered an upper body injury a week earlier against USC and was held out of all contact drills in the days leading up to the Big Game. "Gutsy, tough," Bears coach Justin Wilcox said of his quarterback. "To make the throws that he made on the last drive and then the scramble for the touchdown, those are huge plays. I think people are going to be talking about that drive for a while." California fans stormed the field after the game, forming a blue-and-yellow sea on the floor of Stanford Stadium. More importantly for Wilcox's team, California became bowl eligible heading into the season finale against UCLA next week. - California/AP College Football

  11/10/19 - Devon ModsterrJr/2021, California, 6-2, 215 (DS#45 QB) + More +

  Devon Modster wasn't too impressed with the best game of his career. That it helped stop California's four-game losing streak was much more important to the Golden Bears quarterback. Modster passed for a career-high three touchdowns and rushed for a fourth in his first game back from injury, California's defense made a pivotal stop late in the fourth quarter, and the Golden Bears beat the Cougars 33-20 on Saturday night to end a four-game losing streak. "I would say it was average," Modster said of his night. "A couple throws I should have made, a couple reads. I just think it was more of a great team win. We can all improve on this."

Modster did not play in Cal's 35-0 loss to No. 8 Utah on Oct. 26 because of an unspecified injury but was cleared earlier this week. He completed 16 of 24 passes for 230 yards and had a pivotal 26-yard scramble prior to his 52-yard touchdown pass to Makai Polk. Modster also had scoring throws of 9 and 13 yards, then sealed the game with a 13-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. "I felt like he just played free and like himself and left it all out there on the field," Polk said of Modster. Chris Brown Jr. rushed for 95 yards and scored twice to help California (5-4, 2-4 Pac-12) win for the first time since Sept. 21. The Bears outgained the Cougars 196-16 on the ground. The win keeps California on track to become bowl eligible for the third time in three seasons under coach Justin Wilcox. - California/AP College Football
