ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that Baylor is focusing it coaching search on California's Sonny Dykes.

Per the report, Dykes became the target after SMU's Chad Morris "elected to remain with the Mustangs on Tuesday." SMU officials coaxed Morris back by offering a contract extension "to increase his compensation package relative to the current market," according to the Dallas Morning News. Dykes, 47, is 19-30 in four years at California, including 5-7 this season. To be fair, he inherited the program at a low point and took his lumps while teaching it the Air Raid. San Francisco 49ers coach and ex-Baylor linebacker Mike Singletary and Arkansas State's Blake Anderson are two other current candidates for the Baylor job if Dykes doesn't work out.

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 32 of 48 attempts for 301 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 36-10 win over UCLA.

Cal finishes the season 5-7, while UCLA closes the year 4-8. We aren't calling Webb No. 1 pick material, but it is interesting to note that the offense did not fall off a cliff after Jared Goff's departure. Webb has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.
Nov 27 - 8:17 AM

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 32-of-48 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over UCLA.

This wasn't one of Webb's flashier games this season, but he got the job done nonetheless. This was the 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior's 10th game with at least 300 yards passing. His superlative work will fall in vain, though, as Cal has cratered out with a five-game losing streak that will deprive them of potential bowl glory. Webb is off to the NFL Draft, now, having thrown for 4,295 yards with a 37/12 TD/INT ratio in 12 games this season.
Nov 26 - 11:04 PM

Cal senior RB Khalfani Muhammad rushed for 116 yards on 29 carries in Saturday's 36-10 win over UCLA.

Muhammad paced the Golden Bears in Saturday's victory, averaging 4.0 YPC with a long run of 14 yards. This kind of low-grade acceptability is actually an improvement on what he had been doing of late. In his previous three games, the 5-foot-7, 170-pound senior had rushed for a combined 97 yards. Saturday's trip over the century mark was his third of the season.
Nov 26 - 10:55 PM

Cal redshirt junior WR Chad Hansen caught 10 passes for 156 yards in Saturday's 36-10 win over UCLA.

Hansen averaged a juicy 15.6 yards per reception in the victory. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound wideout will not be able to showcase his talents in a postseason bowl berth, however, as Saturday's win merely improved the Golden Bears' record to 5-7. Hansen has been a beautiful performer when healthy this season, finishing the campaign having caught 92 passes for 1,249 yards and 11 touchdowns in 11 games played.
Nov 26 - 10:46 PM

Cal senior QB Davis Webb completed 34-of-57 passes for 393 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-31 loss to Stanford.

Webb hooked up with Chad Hansen for scores in the first and fourth quarters. He has surpassed 300 yards passing in eight of 11 games this season. For the campaign as a whole, the 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior has thrown for 3,994 yards with a 35/12 TD/INT ratio. His has been a statistically successful campaign, but it hasn't led to many wins. With Saturday's defeat, Cal fell to 4-7. Their final game of the season will come against UCLA.
Nov 19 - 9:30 PM

Cal redshirt junior WR Chad Hansen caught seven passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-31 loss to Stanford.

Stanford HC David Shaw admitted during the practice week that he did not know who Hansen was prior to the start of the season. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound redshirt junior made sure to give Shaw a show in Saturday's contest. He caught touchdown passes of 70 and 16 yards in the first and fourth quarters, respectively. The latter score merely made cosmetic effect on the scoreboard. While Hansen has been hampered by an ankle injury at times this season, in his nine relatively healthy contests he has worked to an 82-1092-11 receiving line. With Saturday's loss, the Golden Bears have been eliminated from bowl contention. They will finish out their 2016 season against UCLA next Saturday.

Cal HC Sonny Dykes and UNC HC Larry Fedora are "the two names most prominently mentioned at Baylor," according to CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd.

Dodd mentions Fedora's name has also come up at LSU. It is worth mentioning that many coaches who come up in conversation via the media are frequently angling for more money from their current program, but we do know Baylor will have a new coach in 2017.

Cal QB Davis Webb will attend the Senior Bowl.

Webb's collegiate path has featured multiple turns, including a transfer from Texas Tech after serving as the starter for multiple seasons. Webb replaced Jared Goff this season after transferring, throwing 33 touchdowns compared to 12 interceptions so far.

Nov 16 - 11:32 AM

Stanford HC David Shaw indicated that he did not know who Cal redshirt junior WR Chad Hansen was prior to the start of the 2016 season.

A fun little sign of just how quickly Hansen jumped up on the CFB universe -- even other Pac-12 coaches were unfamiliar with him in August. That changed, Shaw said, after the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder crumpled Hawaii with 14 catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns in their Sydney season-opener. Shaw told the media on Tuesday that his reaction to that performance was "Holy Mackerel!" Actual words used by David Shaw on Tuesday. Just about the only thing to slow down Hansen this season has been a nagging ankle injury that has been haunting him since October 8. In eight games, he has recorded a 75-979-9 receiving line.

Nov 15 - 6:17 PM

Cal freshman WR Demetris Robertson caught six passes for 141 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's blowout loss to Washington State.

For whatever else is happening with Cal right now -- they have lost four of their last five games -- they at least have one shining gem to look upon. That would be Robertson. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound freshman put forth his best receiving effort of his young career on Saturday, averaging 23.5 yards per reception while tying his second-best receptions total this season. Through 10 games, he is working on a 44-692-7 receiving line. Assuming Cal can figure out its post-Davis Webb quarterbacking situation after the season, Robertson could be in for a true breakout 2017 campaign.
Nov 13 - 11:05 AM

Cal redshirt junior WR Chad Hansen (ankle) "didn’t show a limp and appeared mostly unencumbered while running routes" during Tuesday's practice, reports the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons.

Bears head coach Sonny Dykes has gone from saying he's "hopeful" that Hansen will play to saying he's "optimistic." Hansen has 59 catches for 770 yards and eight scores. He's been out since spraining his ankle and bruising the bone in Cal’s loss at Oregon State on Oct. 8. Cal gets Washington this weekend.
Nov 3 - 5:43 PM

Cal senior QB Davis Webb turned in a relatively quiet evening in Thursday's 45-24 loss to USC, completing 34-of-53 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Fine yardage total for Webb, but the game as a whole was not one of his sharper performances. No. 1 WR Chad Hansen's absence due to a nagging leg injury didn't help the cause. Thursday's two-touchdown performance marked just the second time in eight games this season that the 6-foot-5, 209-pound Webb has failed to throw for at least three touchdowns. For the season as a whole, the fantasy dynamo has thrown for 2,914 yards (62.4% completions) with a beefy 29/8 TD/INT ratio.
Oct 28 - 2:46 PM

Cal HC Sonny Dykes called the scheduling of Thursday's game against USC "a travesty."

Cal was playing this road contest on a short week, having just battled Oregon in a double-overtime victory last Friday. On the other side, USC was coming off a bye. Dykes was none too pleased with this disparity, saying after Thursday's 45-24 loss to the Trojans, "We looked like a tired, beat up football team. I think it’s a travesty whoever scheduled this game. I hope the Pac-12 doesn’t do that again to any other school. It’s not right for the kids." Cal dropped to 4-4 with the loss. They wrap up their regular season with a slate of tough match-ups, sequentially facing Washington, Washington State, Stanford and UCLA in November.
Oct 28 - 2:04 PM

Cal redshirt junior WR Chad Hansen (ankle) didn't play against USC on Thursday.

Cal didn't disclose the absence in advance, nor, strangely, did the Berkeley press corps. Same case as last week against Oregon, in other words. The Bears are guarding injury news closely, so we may have another wait-and-see week in store with regards to Hansen's status.
