Hawaii is a pretty experienced group. The Rainbow Warriors return 17 starters (nine on offense, eight on defense), which is the fifth-most nationally. Alternatively, Cal returns just 10 starters (four on offense, six on defense).

So far the Cal defense has done little to impress. The Bears have given up 99 yards and one TD at the midway point of the first quarter. Tackling hasn't been good. They've looked undisciplined. The unit will need to make major strides before Pac-12 play.

California scores first TD of season

That onside kick kind of backfired. Short field for California, and it took advantage. Khalfani Muhammad, 34-yards, touchdown. (Live on ESPN, WatchESPN)

Cal's Khalfani Muhammad gets a key third-down conversion on the Bears' first drive and then turns in a 34-yard touchdown. Nice show of speed from the All-Pac-12 sprinter. He finished seventh in both the 100- and the 200-meter dash at the Pac-12 track championships in May.

CFB '16 underway! With a failed onside kick. There's a lot that's funky here. But good crowd in Sydney. Plenty of Aussies follow the sport

WATCH: California vs. Hawaii

A new season starts in a new place with both teams meeting in Australia (10 p.m. ET, ESPN). The Golden Bears debut Texas Tech transfer Davis Webb under center. Hawaii enters its first game with Nick Rolovich manning the sidelines as head coach -- and little chance to win, according to FPI. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Stats & Info

Sharon Katz ESPN Analytics 

It's not easy to replace the No. 1 overall pick, but Cal may have found a quarterback to fill Jared Goff's shoes. In three years at Texas Tech, Davis Webb had a 74 Total QBR, the fourth-best mark of any returning QB with at least 500 career pass attempts.

Hawaii's football team will fly 46,696 miles to get to their games this season, that's 3,108 miles short of circling the earth twice.

Defensive end Chester Graves is the top overall prospect in Kansas City, and the senior from Park Hill High School has moved to linebacker to help his team pursue a state title. He listed Ohio State as his leader recently but Missouri, Nebraska and others are also heavily involved.
