Cal entered last week as a member of the top-25 for the first time all season. It didn’t last long, however. The Golden Bears couldn’t keep up with the Ducks of Oregon, who hung forty-seven points on them.
This week, Cal goes on the road for the first — and only — time since narrowly taking out BYU in its second game of the season. U of A will be ready for the Bears on Saturday night.

The 42–24 palindrome loss to Oregon also represented Cal’s first game in the Pac-12, a league it is now at the bottom of at 0–1.
The ground game wasn’t the problem against the Ducks. Cal gained 241 yards on 41 carries and scored twice. Of course, Oregon topped that with 260 yards on 42 carries, including a 74-yard rumble by CJ Verdell.
Everything else was a problem, though. The defense provided no resistance and Brandon Mcllwain and Chase Garbers threw four interceptions on just thirty combined pass attempts.
The sophomore Mcllwain got the bulk of the snaps under center for the first time all season, throwing twenty-one times. His previous season-high was nine tries.
After starting 2–0 and then making things up and getting back to 2–2, Arizona dropped a tight game to USC last week, evening its conference record at 1–1, too.
The ‘Cats could not contain USC running back Aca’Cedric Ware, who rushed 21 times for 173 yards, an average of 8.2 yards per carry. He also scored twice.
The ‘Cats stayed in the game, despite Ware and despite Khalil Tate completing just under half his pass attempts, because all three fumbles in the game were committed by USC and all three were recovered by Arizona.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Pick: California wins and covers.
Sure, Cal is a tiny favorite in this game but I’m not sure what’s scaring off more bettors from taking the Bears. Cal has the offense to put pressure on Arizona’s defense, even in ‘Zona. I’ll take the better team at a virtual pick and count my blessings.
