CALIFORNIA — Key players: QB Zach Maynard, RB Isi Sofele, RB C.J. Anderson, WR Keenan Allen, DE Mustafa Jalil, NG Aaron Tipoti. Returning starters: offense 6, defense 6.
Notes: Sofele and Anderson give the Bears a nice 1-2 punch, but there are a couple of holes to fill on the offensive line. ... Maynard completed 57 percent of his passes for nearly 3,000 yards, but had 12 interceptions to go with 17 TDs. ... Allen, one of the most dynamic receivers in the conference, had ankle surgery in the spring, but is expected to be ready for the season opener. ... Cal opens remodeled Memorial Stadium against Nevada on Sept. 1.
