Pre-kickoff notables

–Matt Malele definitely is out. Cody Jones is starting in his place. Brandon Hampton is replacing Jahvid Best as one of Cal’s kick returners.

–Cal’s captains today are Craig Stevens, Thomas DeCoud, Anthony Felder and Justin Forsett. A nice touch for Felder, who is from Seattle and playing in front of family and friends today.

–There are a lot of empty seats here. It looks like the rain is keeping some folks away.
