The California Golden Bears return to Memorial Stadium to face off against the Washington State Cougars at 1pm Saturday. For a preview of the Cougars, visit our friends at CGB:
Cal Coach Sonny Dykes and WSU Coach Mike Leach share common football roots, dating back to their days as assistant coaches at Kentucky in the late 90s. Dykes also worked as an assistant (OC & WR coach) on Leach’s staff at Texas Tech. Saturday’s game could end up being a shootout, matching up the Dykes/Franklin Bear Raid against the Pirate’s pure Air Raid. The Cougars (3-2) are actually a slight favorite – 1.5 points – but the game is a must-win for the Bears (1-3), who are seeking their first victory versus a Pac-12 opponent.
In other news, senior safety Alex Logan retired from football this week and is no longer on the team, according to a report by Cal Rivals – LINK.
