Cal got an unexpected bye last week, while Colorado decided not to show up in a home game they desperately needed against Utah.
If they want to have a chance at making their second bowl game in the last ten years they should come out and actually try and win this one.
Colorado will have to break their six game losing streak this week if they want to go to a bowl game. After a 5-0 start, the Buffaloes have lost six straight and changes are being made in Boulder.
After being a Cinderella story two years ago with Mike Macintyre winning coach of the year; this fairy tale has turned into a nightmare. Colorado is back to being just a forgettable, below average team and Macintyre is now unemployed.
Granted, it’s better than where they were with Jon Embree as their head coach, but still I’m sure it’s a frustrating time to be a Buffaloes fan.
Colorado will have some bad news on the injury front heading into this game with Steven Montez questionable to play. So, we’ll see how effective the quarterback carousal will be for the Buffaloes.
Also, we’ll see how effective Kurt Roper is in rallying the troops together. Obviously, he’s coaching for a full-time job, but if you ask certain programs around the country they’ll you that you probably shouldn’t make any hasty moves and make your interim coach the full-time head coach.
Cal Golden Bears
The Cal Golden Bears got an unexpected bye week last week as their game with Stanford was PPD due to the wildfires going on in California. So, it’s definitely good and bad news for the team.
Good news is they get an extra week to rest and prepare, the bad news is they couldn’t exactly carry over that momentum from their win over USC.
So, since, Cal hasn’t played in a week nothing much has changed. They still have a top rated defense and their offense leaves a lot to be desired.

I’m going to go with Cal winning this one and covering.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Cal -12.5
The reason for that is the fact that Colorado just didn’t look ready or interested to play last week. Granted, it was cold and snowy, but still they should have played a better game.
This game is on the road and their head coach just got fired. Granted, that could be a little boost or a little motivation this team needs, but betting is sometimes about trust and I know what I’m getting with Cal. I don’t know what I’m getting with Colorado.
Also, you might look at the under. Cal should score some points, but with Colorado uncertain at quarterback I don’t see them scoring many points in this one.
