New coach, old RB highlight California spring game

California’s first spring game under new coach Sonny Dykes

included a touchdown from one of the Bears’ former stars.

Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch ran untouched – he wasn’t allowed

to be tackled – for a 22-yard touchdown, but the defense still won

the spring game Saturday. The Cal defense, receiving points for

turnovers, missed field goals, sacks and other stops, won

28-24.

The Bears drew 5,831 fans to Memorial Stadium.

Dykes was hired away from Louisiana Tech to replace Jeff Tedford

after the Bears went 3-9 last season.

Lynch played for Tedford from 2004-06 before being drafted in

the first round by the Buffalo Bills. Lynch says he hopes the new

regime can turn the program ”back into what it was when I was

here.”
