After a hard fought 44-30 loss to Northwestern last Saturday, the California Golden Bears look to bounce back today against FCS opponent Portland State. The Vikings feature the pistol offense – a scheme that has given Cal trouble in the past. For a preview of PSU’s units on both sides of the ball, head over to our friends at California Golden Blogs:

Coach Sonny Dykes and the Cal staff are not taking PSU lightly: the Golden Bears are a very young team, and they need as much live game action as possible. Coach Dykes also subscribes to the “one game at a time” mantra, and thus there’s no looking ahead to next week’s matchup versus Ohio State. Nevertheless, Cal is a heavy favorite, and it would be a shock if the game isn’t firmly in Cal’s favor by halftime.
