This is a pure hunch, plain and simple. Bigelow had just 431 yards rushing, and didn't even eclipse 100 yards receiving last year.

However.

When I saw the now-junior hang 160 yards on Ohio State in 2012 — and when I saw the way he did it (3 TDs, 80+ yard run) — he reminded me of Jahvid Best. He has the same wreckless style.

Again, it's just feeling. If Cal puts together a decent line for 2013, Bigelow will run wild.
