BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - 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.''
