Washington takes to the road to take on the Golden Bears down in Berkeley on Saturday night a week after getting back in the win column after their devastating loss to Oregon two weeks ago.
Cal is also coming off a big win last week, when they took to Corvallis to give the Beavers a 49-7 beat down on their own field.
#15 Washington Huskies
Well the Huskies sure have some good news heading into this tilt with Cal, RB Myles Gaskin is officially listed as probable for Saturday. Not that they needed him last week at home, but to get a player of his caliber back in the lineup is always a blessing.
With a win this week, the Huskies will be one step closer to securing the Pac-12 North title. Of course there still are the Stanford game and the Apple Cup to look forward to, but, Washington has a very good shot at winning out, and staying in their top position to secure a trip to the Conference Championship game.
Washington’s defense has been very tough all year, giving up an average of only 15.6 points per game, and they really showed up last week against a very strong Colorado football team. If they Huskies held the Buffaloes to only 13 points, just imagine what this unit will do to a Cal team that only has one conference win.
California Golden Bears
Thank god for the Oregon State Beavers. They seem to be the one team that almost everybody can count on to get a win over these days. If not for last weekend, these Golden Bears honestly could have gone winless in conference play.
For once the Golden Bears didn’t beat themselves. They won the turnover battle against the Beavers, which is something that has plagued this team all year long. To win football games, you must be disciplined, something that they are having a hard time conveying to the players on the field.
Despite having a losing conference record on the year, Cal has put up more points on the year than they have given up. That is largely in part of the margin of victory last weekend. On the year the Bears are coming in scoring an average of 26.7 points per game, while giving up an average of 24. They will find it hard to keep this Washington team under 24 points, only Auburn and Utah have done that this season.
NCAA Football Handicapping Trends

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
Washington should win this game pretty easily. Even though both of their losses came away from Husky Stadium, the Golden Bears shouldn’t cause too many problems for this top ranked Husky team.

I’m a bit skeptical of this spread. It is still early in the week, keep an eye on it to see if there’s any line movement happening before placing any bets on Washington to cover.
Despite the spread, take Washington to win on the road, and for the score to go OVER the number. The Huskies are due for an offensive explosion.
