Cal quarterback Jared Goff will be the center of attention on Dec. 29 in the Armed Forces Bowl against Air Force. Not only will Air Force be keyed in on Goff's every move, so will NFL scouts.

“Our team really embraces the challenge,” said Air Force senior defensive end Alex Hansen, per the Fort-Worth Star Telegram. “We know what they’re capable of. Their running back is potent and we know how potent their quarterback is. He (Goff) is unbelievable. He can step up in the pocket. His throws are accurate. His ability to scramble is also good.”

Goff threw for 4,252 yards and 37 touchdowns this season en route to being named first-team All-Pac-12. The Bears are having their best season in years and have a chance to win eight games for the first time since 2009.

“There are a lot of games that could have gone the other way, but I think it’s the same way with the games we won,” Goff said. “We won a lot of close games as well. We could have won nine or 10 games. We were super excited to get here and we’re excited for the challenge.”

Goff is one of the most highly touted prospects and he could decide to forgo his senior season to enter the 2016 NFL Draft. If he left Cal, Goff would likely be a first round pick.
