The California Golden Bears and the North Carolina Tar Heels will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Kenan Stadium.

ABOUT CAL (2016: 5-7): After relying heavily on quarterbacks Jared Goff and Webb in recent years, the Bears are promising a more-balanced attack led by senior running backs Vic Enwere and Tre Watson, who combined for 1,045 rushing yards last season. There are question marks on the inexperienced offensive line, but the Bears have a pair of dynamic wide receivers in Demetris Robertson and Melquise Stovall, who return after combining for 10 touchdowns last year. The Bears should be much improved on defense, where starting linebackers Raymond Davison III and Devante Downs anchor a veteran group eager to form a new identity.

ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA (2016: 8-5): While the Tar Heels have plenty of uncertainty on offense, the defense boasts one of the nation’s top cornerbacks in M.J. Stewart, who led the team with 11 pass breakups and had 59 tackles last season as a junior. Whoever gets the nod at quarterback will be working behind a makeshift offensive line after guards Tommy Hatton and Jared Cohen both left the team during fall camp. Fedora has several openings at wide receiver but was encouraged by the play of junior Devin Perry during camp.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Tar Heels listed as 12½-point favorites versus the Golden Bears, while the game’s total is sitting at 57 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42.

All eyes figure to be on the quarterback position Saturday as California visits North Carolina in the season opener for both teams. Sophomore Ross Bowers is set to make his first collegiate start for the Golden Bears while Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora is still deciding between LSU transfer Brandon Harris, Chazz Surratt and Nathan Elliott.

The game marks the head-coaching debut of defensive guru Justin Wilcox, who replaced Sonny Dykes after Cal went 5-7 last season and ranked 125th nationally in total defense. The Bears lost quarterback Davis Webb and wide receiver Chad Hansen to the NFL but are bullish on Bowers, who beat out junior Chase Forrest and true freshman Chase Garbers for the starting job. “Ross can throw the football — he spins it really well,” Wilcox told reporters. “He’s an athletic guy (who) can make some things happen when it’s not perfect. He kind of has that mentality about him. He can throw from different arm angles, get out of trouble and make a play on the run.” Bowers will throw his first collegiate pass against a North Carolina team that was picked to finish fifth in the ACC Coastal Division and enters the season with questions at several key positions, including quarterback, running back and the offensive line.

North Carolina was a 25-23 loser in its last match at home against Cardinal. They covered the +2.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 48 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for California, they were a 36-10 winner as they battled Bruins at home. California covered in the match as a +3-point underdog, while 46 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
