Cal is coming off a great win and has a chance to follow through on expectations with a winnable game at home.
The Bears shouldn’t be much of a surprise, they just aren’t very modern.
North Texas is a team you might not know much about but they know how to move the ball and will challenge Cal.
North Texas Mean Green
It is hard to know the level of North Texas just yet. I thought they would have competed better against SMU last week.
Mason Fine has been one of the most productive quarterback in the country since arriving at North Texas. For NT to have a chance he is going to have to solve a strong Cal defense.
North Texas was actually more effective running the ball against SMU but moving the ball like that against the Bears is going to be tough too.
Cal is not a great offensive team so North Texas may be able to keep this one in reach and hope Fine and Co. can solve things in the end.
I was higher on the Mean Green a few weeks ago. This game, though not in CUSA, might give us a good idea of their actual ceiling this season.
I thought all along that Cal would play well against Washington. I had them as an easy cover but the beat the Huskies for the second year in a row. It is all about the defense.
Justin Wilcox has developed these guys to possibly the best defense in the conference, thought Utah might want to comment on that.
The offense has to be better though if they are going to the games they are supposed to and then some. Power back Christopher Brown Jr. is a nice compliment to the D but they have to be able to throw the ball too. Chase Garbers is barely managing the game now.
This is a classic let down spot off the big road win. They also could be looking ahead with a fun trip to take on Ole Miss up next. The key is how they start.

North Texas might be feisty coming into this one off a loss. They have enough to at least make Cal work.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Cal -14
With their offense nothing special backing the Bears by double digits is tough. Still look for them to wear the Mean Green Down.
This one might be all about coaching for the Bears and Wilcox. He needs to keep his team with the eye on the prize. He can do that.
