Cal Beats Tennesee in Season Opener, 45-31
For Cal fans around the world, tonight's victory over Tennesee was sweet revenge for last season's opener where Tennesee trounced Cal. Cal looked strong in several categories--special teams, including an opening spectacular kickoff return by Deshawn Jackson--who returns 1 / 5 for touchdowns, defense, including a four-down goal-line stand in the third quarter, several great runs and just great football. Go Bears! Have a great season! Just a note: Cal has not been in the Rose Bowl since 1959. Although teams can derail during any game in the season (think of Appalachian State beating #5 Michigan today), but it is concievable, with Tedford calling the plays again (he really is an offensive genius), this could be Cal's best season since Pappy Waldorf was at the helm.
