10:00 PM ET 03.24 | If you thought you were going to have to wait until the 2013 NFL season kicks off to see Marshawn Lynch score another touchdown, you thought wrong. The Seattle Seahawks running back and former California Golden Bear turned back the clock Saturday and went Beast Mode at Cal's spring game. Lynch suited up for the game and scored a touchdown. So how exactly did an NFL player suit for a college spring game? Due to injuries, the Bears were able to dress two running backs -- Jonah Hodges and Jeffrey Coprich --and that's where Lynch stepped in. According to Lynch, suiting up was partly his idea. "It was a little mix. My boy KP asked me if I'd do it and I told him, 'I got his back,'" Lynch said, referring to Kevin Parker, Cal's assistant director of player personnel, who's in his 12th season with the team.

Better practice for Cal's linebackers...wonder what they thought when they looked across the line and saw Lynch in the backfield?

Running backs need to be able to finish their runs. Not sure this is a smart move by the NFL...
