Two teams from the PAC 12 will be facing off when the Cal Golden Bears visit the Stanford Cardinal.
Both of these teams have been very disappointing this year. When you think of good teams in their conference, these schools do not come up.
Cal opened up as a 3.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 2. The total has been right around 45.5.
Cal Golden Bears
Cal simply has not had a good year so far. There are not many good things to say about their football team.
The Golden Bears last played against Arizona on November 6th when they lost by a score of 10-3. They will look to get back on track when they go against Stanford.
In the loss to Arizona, quarterback Ryan Glover did not look good at all. He finished the day 11/29 for only 94 yards. Ugly.
When you only score 3 points, there is not much to say about the offense besides the fact that they sucked. It looks even worse when you do that against a terrible team in Arizona.
The defense has been decent for this team, but they have also really struggled at times. I do feel they can have a good day when they go against Stanford. If you get shredded by the Cardinal, then what else is there to say about your unit?
Just like Cal, Stanford has been very bad so far this year. It is not surprising that this team did not have very high expectations heading into the season.
The Cardinal lost last week to the Oregon State Beavers by a score of 35-14. That loss should not come as a surprise to folks.
Let’s just say the quarterback play was dreadful a week ago. That is about all you need to know about that position.
The offense is just simply not a good one. That pretty much summarizes them. You should be surprised when they score a decent amount of points.
Their defense is also bad. Having a bad offense and defense is never a recipe for success. We can now see why they are a 3-7 team.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Pick
There is not much to get excited about when it comes to this game. A good chunk of the country could care less about it, but it has to be played.
I will go with Cal at -2 here.
4* Free Week 12 NCAA Betting Pick:
I think both teams in this game are very bad. With that said, there are levels to how bad you are.
I feel that Cal is the better of the bad teams. If they cannot win and cover against Stanford, then things are seriously wrong with them.
You cannot deny it–Stanford has been terrible against the spread this year. I do not see that trend coming to an end here. It is not that I have a ton of confidence in Cal, but it is more so that I have very little confidence backing the Cardinal.
Give me the Golden Bears laying the points here.
