Football: Center Brian Schwenke wants a piece of Memorial Stadium history — the first TD

Senior center Brian Schwenke, talking with reporters after practice on Wednesday, said he sees no reason why he cannot daydream about being the first player to score a touchdown.

We think it’s a fine idea, too.

Frankly, there’s little chance he will follow in the footsteps of former Cal All-America center Edwin “Babe” Horrell, who scored the first touchdown in Memorial Stadium’s 1923 debut game.

So who do you think will crack the end zone for the first time Saturday?

Isi Sofele?

Keenan Allen?

C.J. Anderson?

Someone from Nevada?

Let me know, and I’ll tally up your votes.
