Cal goes through its final walk-through before the opener against Hawaii in Sydney, Australia

California finished off its game preparation on Friday in Sydney (Thursday in California) with a walk-through at the all-turf practice field at Davis Phillips Sports Complex in Daceyville, NSW, outside of Sydney, Australia.

California and Hawaii open up the 2016 football season in just over 24 hours in Sydney, Australia, in a noon (local time) kickoff, broadcast on ESPN at 7 PM Pacific in California. The Bears and the Warriors finished preparation on Friday (local) for the kickoff at ANZ Stadium (expected to see over 75,000 in attendance), and spoke with local media about the impact that college football can have on Australia, and what kind of game fans should expect, between Nick Rolovich's variable pistol-spread offens and Jake Spavital's run-heavy version of the Bear Raid.

Cal opened as a 23-point favorite, but that got bet down to a 20-point spread. The game also opened up with an over-under at 61 points, but that's been bet up to 63 points. My take? 48-20, Cal. More from Friday's practice:
