In a span of just a couple of years, Justin Wilcox has turned Cal into a defensive juggernaut. The Bears finished 2018 ranked 13th in defensive S&P+ and had a tough test against UC Davis from the FCS in Week 1.
After a fumble early by the Cal offense, UC Davis led 10-0 before the defense shut Aggies down for the remainder of the game. The key in that previous sentence is fumble, as Cal has consistently had issues with turnovers.
That was not a problem in last year’s 12-10 victory over Washington. Wilcox has a long history with Washington head coach Chris Petersen.
The former defensive coordinator spent 2006 through 2009 at Boise State producing some of the Broncos best defenses in program history.
