This is a rivalry game and both teams desperately need it for a shot to go bowling, especially Stanford.
This one looks like a slugfest without much offense but sometimes those “big games” can surprise.
Cal has seen its defense get burned a lot more over the second half. They need one more strong game to get bowl eligible.
Cal has two games to get the minimum of 6 wins required for bowl eligibility but it is not going to be easy with both on the road.
The first test is going to be against rival Stanford, a desperate team looking to achieve the same thing.
Cal was rolled last week against USC. The defense, which had been key to all of their success all season was no match for the Trojans. USC sliced them through the air.
QB Devin Modster is just not good enough to rally the Bears in a game like that. He had 2 interceptions and less than 100 yards. They ran the ball effectively but couldn’t stick with it.
Original starting QB Chase Garbers got some playing time last week but left the game with a shoulder injury. I am not sure the Bears can rely on him either way.
After back to back road losses the Cardinal still need two more wins to get bowl eligible. The challenge is that they now only have two games to get them, this week against Cal and their season finale against Notre Dame. That is a tough ask.
Last week in the loss Davis Mills threw for over 500 yards. The stats are impressive but that is a far cry from Stanford football.
The Cardinal had a total of 10 rushing attempts netting 6 yards. I know teams are pass-happy these days but those kinds of numbers are always going to be tough to win with.
The defense was shredded by the Cougars as they gave up more than 500 yards passing too.

Both teams should be hungry for a win in this one. I really want to back Cal but so often this season their offense has been a massive letdown.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Stanford -3
I have been burned a bunch by the Cardinal this season but that is on me, I just wasn’t ready to believe what I had been reading all offseason.
They are not going to make a bowl game with Notre Dame up next but they get this win and some pride too. This will not be fun football to watch though.
