Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 42-of-61 passes for 325 yards and five touchdowns in Friday's 52-49 double-overtime win over Oregon.
Webb was coming off his worst performance of the season, throwing for just 113 yards in a loss to Oregon State. He injured his hand in that one, too. After a bye week to rest up, though, he came out like gangbusters against Oregon. He tossed four of his five touchdown passes before halftime. The 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior has now notched five touchdown tosses in three of seven games. For the season as a whole, he has thrown for 2,581 yards with a 27/7 TD/INT ratio. Oct 22 - 2:59 AM

Cal HC Sonny Dykes said that he expects senior QB Davis Webb (hand) to start against Oregon on Friday.

Webb initially injured his hand in a Week 6 loss to Oregon State. It did not prevent him from finishing the game and with a bye week between that contest and Friday's showdown with the Ducks, he has had a fair amount of time to heal up. "He looks good," Dykes said of the 6-foot-5, 209-pounder. "I don't see any lingering effect at all. We were probably going to give him a couple of days off anyway to let his arm rest." Webb ranks among the top three in the nation in terms of both passing yardage (2,256 yards) and touchdown passes (22). Fantasy owners should feel confident installing the gunslinger in their lineups in advance of Friday's goldmine-of-a-match-up vs. Oregon.

An NFL personnel executive says Cal senior QB Davis Webb is "bigger than (Jared) Goff and he has a much better arm."

"I didn't have high expectations for Webb. I thought he would be just a system type guy, considering where he came from," the exec said. "After studying him, I was shocked. He's really good. He's bigger than (Jared) Goff and he has a much better arm. He makes some rare throws." analyst Lance Zierlein took in the 6-foot-5, 209-pound Webb's performance against Texas this year and had this to say about the comparison: "I think it's very similar. I think Goff had a good arm, I didn't think it was a great arm. He had plenty for an NFL arm. Webb can throw that deep ball pretty well. From the eyeball test, their arms are comparable." Goff, of course, was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. Webb boasts a TD/INT ratio of 22/7.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb (hand) did not participate in practice on Tuesday.

With Cal off on bye this coming weekend, there is no pressing need for Webb to practice at this juncture. The 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior injured his hand in the first half of Saturday's overtime loss to Oregon State, but managed to play the entire game. He was noticeably off in his passing, ultimately finishing with a season-low 113 yards through the air. The Golden Bears' next game will come against Oregon on October 21. For the sake of fantasy owners, we hope Webb is healthy for that one. He could post huge numbers against a Ducks team that has played dead-in-the-water ball for most of the season.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb suffered a hand injury in the first half of Saturday's 47-44 overtime loss to Oregon State, but managed to play the entire game.

"We'll evaluate and see where we go from here," said HC Sonny Dykes, "but I thought he toughed it out, fought through it and got us back in the ballgame and had a chance to win it." Webb finished with his worst statistical showing of the 2016 season on Saturday, completing 23-of-44 passes for 113 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. The 6-foot-5, 209-pounder entered Saturday's contest having thrown for at least 300 yards and four touchdowns in each of Cal's first five games. The Golden Bears are off on bye this weekend, so Webb should be able to heal up unless this injury is more severe than initially believed.
Oct 9 - 4:23 PM

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 22-of-35 passes for 306 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 28-23 win over Utah.

Webb just keeps on keepin' on. Against the Utes on Saturday, he threw a pair of touchdowns to Chad Hansen and another pair to Demetris Robertson. The 6-foot-5, 209-pound gunslinger has been nothing short of magical this season. He has thrown for over 300 yards and at least three touchdowns in all five of Cal's games this season. It all adds up to 2,113 yards passing and a delectable 22/6 TD/INT ratio.
Oct 1 - 10:03 PM

Cal senior QB Davis Webb was phenomenal in Saturday's 50-43 win over Texas, completing 27-of-40 passes for 399 yards and four touchdowns.

Webb threw three of his four touchdown passes in a wild first half that saw the teams hit the locker room with Cal holding a 35-33 lead. Scoring predictably slowed (by degrees) in the second half. With the game knotted at 43-43 in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, Webb hooked up with Chad Hansen on a 12-yard touchdown pass to snap the tie. That scoring toss would stand as the difference-maker. For the season, Webb has thrown for 1,359 yards (63.9% completions) with a 13/3 TD/INT ratio. It has been a fantastic start to the 2016 campaign for the former Texas Tech gunslinger.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb impressed in Friday's 51-31 win over Hawaii, completing 38-of-54 passes for 441 yards and a 4/0 TD/INT ratio.

Webb -- who transferred to Cal from Texas Tech this offseason -- wasn't particularly sharp early, but he began to find his groove as the contest progressed. He found Chad Hansen for a 17-yard score midway through the first quarter, then hit up Hansen a second time near the end of the second. The 6-foot-5, 209-pounder would score on a four-yard rush with seven seconds to go before halftime, to boot. Webb would throw two more touchdown passes in the second half to complete a nice, relatively easy debut with the Golden Bears. Cal will have next weekend off, but Webb and company figure to see a much stauncher test against San Diego State on September 10.

Cal OC Jake Spavital indicated that senior QB Davis Webb was named the starter for 2016 due to his experience and grasp of the offensive system.

"Fans are going to see a very confident quarterback who likes to take control of the game and compete every play," Spavital said. Chase Forest and Ross Bowers were both hopefuls for the starting job prior to Webb winning over the coaching staff. As HC Sonny Dykes explained it, "We felt like it was the right decision to make once separation occurred. Davis' maturity and knowledge of what we're trying to do put him a little bit ahead of the other quarterbacks." We will have a chance to see the 6-foot-5, 209-pounder in action soon enough -- Cal jumps the rest of the opening-week schedule via their Australian showdown with Hawaii, set to kick off on August 26.

Cal named senior QB Davis Webb the starter for the 2016 season.

During Pac-12 media days, HC Sonny Dykes indicated that there was no timetable for a starting gunslinger to be named and that it "could be five practices in" or "two weeks in." Turns out, three practices was all it took for Webb to rise to the top of the mountain. OC Jake Spavital praised his work as early as the first practice of August, saying that the 6-foot-5, 209-pounder "does have a tremendous arm" before adding "I think he's going to be pretty good." Webb's best season at Texas Tech prior to transferring out over the offseason came in 2014, when he threw for 2,539 yards (61.2% completions) with a 24/13 TD/INT ratio.

Cal HC Sonny Dykes refused to put a timetable on naming a starting quarterback.

Dykes said that his decision on 2016's starting quarterback "could be five practices in, could be a week in, could be two weeks in." Senior QB Davis Webb -- who transferred over from Texas Tech this offseason after a flirtation with Colorado -- is widely thought to be the favorite in this competition. For his 23-game playing career with the Red Raiders, he completed 61.4% of his passes for 5,557 yards and a 46/22 TD/INT ratio. Dykes praised his work ethic during Pac-12 Media Days, noting that Webb has been putting in long hours at the stadium in order to iron out the on-field relationship with his receivers and OC Jake Spavital.

Cal graduate QB Davis Webb enrolled at the university on Wednesday.

This was expected and completes Webb's somewhat awkward transfer from Texas Tech. He had been pledged to Colorado for much of the offseason before reversing course and joining Cal earlier this month. The 6-foot-5, 209-pounder threw for 5,557 yards (61.4% completions) with a 46/22 TD/INT ratio in 23 games with the Red Raiders. Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo would like to see him improve his work against the zone as well as his speed in moving through progressions as he moves closer to the NFL.
May 28 - 3:09 PM

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo believes Cal graduate QB Davis Webb "will attract the NFL’s attention" but must "make better decisions against zone coverage."

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Webb recently signed with the Golden Bears as a grad transfer with an eye on taking over for Jared Goff. At Texas Tech in 2014, the big-armed Webb ranked No. 16 with a big-time throw percentage of 5.43 percent. "He can throw with accuracy and touch both between and outside the numbers, but his flashes of brilliance were accompanied equally by head-scratching throws," Palazzolo wrote. While Webb proved adept at shredding teams downfield, his 5.71 percent rate of turnover-worthy plays (13 interceptions on only 345 attempts in 2014) forced the Red Raiders to hand his job to a guy named Patrick Mahomes, who never gave it back. "Webb is often mechanical and robotic in the pocket and a little too slow to get through his progressions," Palazzolo wrote. "However, the flashes are enough to think that Webb can have success in the Pac-12, particularly since he’s moving to a similar offensive system."

Cal graduate QB Davis Webb defended his decision to transfer to Cal over Colorado, telling FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman, "I only have one year to do this."

Webb -- who committed to a Colorado transfer in January -- indicated that he called Buffs' HC Mike MacIntyre to inform him of his ultimate decision to jump over to Cal earlier this month. He didn't want MacIntyre to hear the news second-hand. "When I committed in January, that was the best situation for me, but then something that fit me better came along," Webb said, later adding, "I really want to get to know as many of [the Cal players] (in the next few weeks) as I can and embrace the culture here that Coach (Sonny) Dykes has created."

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Cal graduate QB Davis Webb the No. 1 senior quarterback prospect for 2017.

Webb (formerly of Texas Tech) broke a long-standing transfer commitment to Colorado and jumped over to Cal earlier this week. He is technically not a senior, having already graduated, but Kiper smashes him onto the top of his senior list regardless. Minnesota's Mitch Leidner and Ole Miss' Chad Kelly round out the top three on that list. The analyst wrote that Webb "has an NFL skill set and is a player NFL teams will watch closely," adding that the 6-foot-5, 220-pounder "could thrive in the draft process."
