Cal football opened its season with a relatively comfortable 51-31 win over Hawai’i in Australia, but Ben Kercheval writes that Cal has plenty of questions to answer going forward, specifically on the defensive side of the ball. Quarterback Davis Webb isn’t among those questions for now after putting up impressive numbers – 38-54, 441 yards and four touchdowns.


Right after we put the Friday roundup live, it was announced that Dakota Prukop will be Oregon’s starting quarterback for the Ducks’ season opener against UC Davis. Justin Herbert will be the backup, followed by Terry Wilson and Travis Jonsen. Also, Oregon suspended defensive end Torrodney Prevot for a conduct violation, as he is currently under investigation by the UO Police Department as a result of a former Oregon athlete claiming he assaulted her twice this year (Daily Emerald on the reporting, Yahoo Sports on the link).
