BERKELEY -- California running back Khalfani Muhammad rushed eight times for 97 yards in the Golden Bears' season-opening win over visiting Grambling State on Saturday, but looking at the game straight-away, his biggest run of the day -- a 42-yarder on a slight cut-back in the second quarter -- didn't look too heartening. On reviewing the tape, though, Muhammad was in fact not caught from behind, as it looked on first viewing. Take a look at that play again, and see what we mean. That moves his game grade from a B- to an A, as he was just another carry away from tallying the Bears' first 100-yard rushing game of the season.
We'll get to the defense soon enough, but take a gander at what we thought just after the game ended in our Scout NOW report.
Here's our coverage of the weekly Tuesday press conference, and of open practice.
