Davis is second nationally with an average of 32.6 yards per kick return (13-424) and tied for second with two kick returns for touchdowns through the 2014 regular season. His two kick return scores are a single-season school record and have him tied for Cal’s all-time lead, while his average was both a single-season school record and has him on top of Cal’s all-time list through the end of the 2014 campaign. Davis tied FBS and Pac-12 single-game records when he became the first player in Cal history to return two kickoffs for a touchdown in the same game at Washington State, bringing back two consecutive kickoffs for 100-yard and 98-yard scores in the third quarter. Davis became the 20th player in FBS history and the third in the Pac-12 with two kickoff returns in the same contest. Davis' 198 kickoff return yards and 99.0 yards per kick return were also single-game school records while he added three receptions for 82 yards with a career-high two touchdown catches in the contest to give him a career-high four touchdowns that also equaled the most by a Pac-12 player through the 2014 regular season. Davis' 280 all-purpose yards were also a career-high and the top single game by a Cal player in 2014. Davis finished the season 893 all-purpose yards to rank second on the club, adding 399 yards receiving and five touchdowns on 24 receptions as well as 70 punt return yards on eight attempts.
