SAN FRANCISCO – Junior running back Brendan Bigelow will be interviewed live on KNBR 1050 AM Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. PT on The Damon Bruce Show. Bigelow is a 2013 candidate for the Doak Walker Award given annually to the nation’s premier running back on the field, in the classroom and in the community, with the preseason watch list scheduled to be announced Thursday.
The interview will not be available live online due to technically difficulties but a podcast will be posted shortly after the interview at KNBR.com.
Bigelow has 1,844 career all-purpose yards over 23 games played and three starts in his first two seasons at Cal as he has returned 58 kicks for 1,285 yards and a touchdown, while adding 456 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, and eight receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown. His all-purpose and rushing totals are all the most by an active Cal player. Bigelow had a career-high 160 yards rushing and two touchdowns on only four carries at Ohio State in 2012 as he became only the second Football Bowl Subdivision player in the last decade to post 150 or more yards rushing in a game on five or fewer carries. He was also the first Cal player since Jahvid Best in 2009 with three or more runs of 50-plus yards during a season on a pair of scoring jaunts at Ohio State of 81 and 59 yards, as well as a 57-yard TD rush at Utah. The 81-yard rush was the longest ever by an opponent at Ohio Stadium.
Cal will host seven games at Memorial Stadium in 2013 beginning with a three-game homestand to open the season against non-conference opponents Northwestern (Aug. 31, 7:30 p.m. PT, ESPN2), Portland State (Sept. 7, 2 p.m. PT, Pac-12 Networks) and Ohio State (Sept. 14, 4 p.m. PT, FOX). The Bears will also play Pac-12 home games against Washington State on Homecoming Weekend (Oct. 5), Oregon State (Oct. 19), Arizona (Nov. 2) and USC (Nov. 9), with start times and television coverage to be announced at later dates for those four contests.
Cal’s road games in 2013 are at Oregon (Sept. 28), UCLA (Oct. 12), Washington (Oct. 26), Colorado (Nov. 16) and Stanford (Nov. 23). The Oregon contest will be televised by Pac-12 Networks while all other television coverage and all remaining kick times will be announced at later dates.
