We have reached week 12 of the college football season, and most teams will be playing a conference showdown this week.
In this one it’s a huge Pac 12 showdown on Saturday night.
The California Golden Bears make the trip to Stanford Stadium to take on the Stanford Cardinal. The Cardinal have won the last seven games played between the two teams.
California Golden Bears
The California Golden Bears got off to a nice start to the year winning the first three games of the season, but since that point they have really struggled.
Since that point they have only won two games, and lost five games. One of those wins was in their last game against the Oregon State Beavers by a final score of 37-23.
For the Golden Bears they seem to be a pretty average team on both sides of the ball, and they have played in a few close games. they just haven’t been able to make big plays down the stretch of games to come out ahead.
To win this game the plan is going to to come down to a couple of key things.
First off they need to find a way to contain Bryce Love. There is no stopping Bryce Love, but if they can slow them down, that will be a start.
The offense also is going to need to be good. The Cardinal have a good defense, and the Golden Bears need to find a way to get rolling.
On the other side of this match up is the Stanford Cardinal who have had a very nice season so far this year, and if they win out, and Washington State loses one of their final games they can still make it to the Pac 12 championship game.
After a bit of a slow start to the season for the Cardinal, they come into this game playing really good football having won six of their last seven games.
In their last game they had their biggest win of the season against the Washington Huskies. They played good defense, and the offense did just enough to win the game 30-22.
For Stanford it’s all about their Heisman Trophy candidate, running back Bryce Love. So far this season he has rushed for 1622 yards, 15 touchdowns, and a mind boggling nine yards per carry.
To win this game the Cardinal just need to play their game, and Love is probably going to need to have another big game.
He is going to have to help carry an offense that sometimes has a lot of issues passing the ball.
