California quarterback Allan Bridgford has earned the backup spot behind Zach Maynard. Bridgford was battling Brock Mansion (1-3 as a starter last year) for the No. 2 spot.
You just got the feeling the Cal coaching staff wanted Bridgford to win the job. He's shown real flashes of brilliance this summer, but also struggled with consistency and decision-making. Now, he'll be a play away from running the Golden Bears offense.
