Football: Running back Brendan Bigelow feeling comfortable and fast in new Cal offense

The week after gaining more yards than any opposing running back in the 90-year history of Ohio State’s home stadium last season, Cal’s Brendan Bigelow didn’t get the ball until the second half at USC.

A week after that, zero carries against Arizona State.

“It was challenging and frustrating at times,” Bigelow said.

For Cal fans, too, who wondered why the Bears were not utilizing their most dynamic weapon in a season that spiraled to a 3-9 final record.

The formula should change beginning Saturday night when the Golden Bears open their first season under coach Sonny Dykes against No. 22 Northwestern.
