2013 California Golden Bears football team

The 2013 California Golden Bears football team represented the University of California, Berkeley in the 2013 NCAA Division I FBS football season. This was Cal's first year of being led by the head coach Sonny Dykes. Cal's athletic director Sandy Barbour stated that it was his emphasis on offense that was the primary factor in the decision.[1] Dykes was hired from Louisiana Tech, and was known for his reliance on the pass heavy and high scoring Air Raid offense, that utilized a shotgun formation with four wide receivers. Cal finished this season with a 1–11 record. With Dykes becoming the first head of coach since the University began playing football in 1886 to fail to defeat a single D-1 opponent in a season that has lasted at least five games.[2] Bears lost to Stanford by 50 points, the largest margin ever in the 119-year history of the Big Game.[3] During the season, the team was featured on The Drive, a weekly documentary series on the Pac-12 Network.[4]
