The 2013 California Golden Bears football team represented the University of California, Berkeley in the 2013 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Bears were led by first year head coach Sonny Dykes and played their home games at Memorial Stadium. As members of the North Division of the Pacific-12 Conference, the Bears finished with the worst record in the Pac-12 Conference having won no conference games and only won 1 game throughout the entire season, none against FBS opponents. This would mark as Cal Football's worst season in its 128 year history. During the season, the team was featured on The Drive, a weekly documentary series on the Pac-12 Network.
