According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, California has been given 200/1 odds to win the 2014 BCS National Championship. The Golden Bears have been given odds of +5000 to win the Pac-12 Conference and odds of +2000 to win the Pac-12 North.

After 11 seasons as head coach, Cal parted ways with Jeff Tedford after a 3-9 record in 2012. In comes Dykes, who left Louisiana Tech after a 22-15 record in three seasons with the Bulldogs.

Dykes has 13 returning starters to work with in the 2013 season. Offensively, Cal needs to build off its 23 points and 391 yards per game from 2012 in the offensive-heavy Pac-12 Conference. Problem for the Bears, it will be breaking in a new starting quarterback, a new starting running back and it loses its top receiver from 2012. Zach Kline, a redshirt freshman, is expected to take over the starting job under center for Dykes.

Defensively, California allowed 33.1 points and 441 yards per game in 2012. One area Cal was strong in on defense was quarterback pressure, as the Bears had 28 sacks for the season. This year’s team returns three starters on the front line and has two starting linebackers back. The area of concern will be in the secondary, where Cal will be breaking in two starters at cornerback, which will likely lead to some big plays allowed in the passing game.
