The Washington State Cougars travel to Berkeley and face the California Golden Bears, in a PAC 12 division game. We could be in for a lop sided matchup early in this game.
Last season the Cougars destroyed the Golden Bears, 56-21 in Pullman. The Cougars are ranked eighth, and are a much better team now, than last year. Quarterback Luke Falk will the led the way for the Cougars.
Washington State Cougars
Washington State is off a big road win last week. The Cougars dismantled the Oregon Ducks 33-10. Luke Falk was 24 of 42 for 282 yards passing and three touchdowns.
Besides Luke Falk’s solid performance, the offense had 369 yards of total offense for the game. Renard Bell, Jamal Morrow and Isaiah Johnson-Mack had one touchdown receiving apiece.
Defensively, the Cougars have been impressive. The unit held an explosive Oregon Ducks offense to 277 yards at home last week. The Ducks were held scoreless the last three quarters of the game.
California Golden Bears
The California Golden Bears season has not been the same since their home loss to the USC Trojans, 30-20 in week four. Since then, the Golden Bears were destroyed at Oregon 45-24 and the following week at Washington, 38-7.
California quarterback Ross Bowers was terrible last week. He was 11 of 18 for 80 yards and 0 touchdowns. Bowers finished with a QBR of 4.9. It was not all his fault. The Golden Bears offense only generated 93 yards for the game against the Huskies.
On the defensive side, the Golden Bears have allowed an alarming 83 points and 836 total yards the pasts two games! If the Golden Bears want to keep this game close, they must play much better on defense.
