According to the latest Vegas odds, Cal is a 4 point favorite against Washington. That’s quite a head scratcher considering that Cal just got destroyed over at Utah while Washington upset a 7th ranked Oregon State. The reasoning behind these Vegas odds are that Cal has been able to put up points at home while Washington has struggled mightily on the road.
Even with those Vegas odds, both ESPN analysts have Cal losing and even local writer Jon Wilner has Cal going down against the Huskies. On top of all this, Washington is coming in with some momentum against a huge win against Oregon State. Oh and did I mention that Keenan Allen (who accounts for 33% of our offense) is out for the season, along with DE Mustafa Jalil and OG Dominic Galas?
It’s not looking so bright out here in Berkeley and we are pretty much depleted of any sunshine pumpers. A loss at home against those damn Huskies will be another step towards firing Tedford. However, if we can somehow pull out our big guns **cough** Bigelow **cough** and play some solid defense, you just never know what may happen for the Cal Bears.
