Cal Golden bears quarterback Allan Bridgford told new coach Sonny Dykes on Monday that he has decided to transfer.
Senior Allen Bridgford, the only experienced quarterback on the Cal Golden Bears roster, might be on his way out and has left the team to mull over his options.
The California Golden Bears couldn’t hold onto the football or protect their quarterback in a 21-10 loss to Texas in the Holiday Bowl on Wednesday night.
Zach Maynard threw for one touchdown and ran for another and California’s defense completely shut down Utah’s offense to help the Golden Bears get their first Pac-12 win of the season, 34-10 over the Utes on Saturday.
California quarterback Zach Maynard spent a lot of time trying to keep his brother Keenan Allen out of trouble while the two were growing up together.
Giorgio Tavecchio made three field goals—including a career-best 54-yarder—for Cal, which led 15-14 at the half but couldn’t sustain its momentum against the country’s top scoring offense.
In what will be a season filled with changes, the most noticeable one for the Golden Bears will be moving across the bay from Berkeley to play at the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park while Memorial Stadium is renovated.
California coach Jeff Tedford said transfer Zach Maynard will be the team’s starting quarterback to open the 2011 season.
