After showing signs of progress last weekend against UCLA, the Cal secondary faces its stiffest opposition yet in Oregon State's high flying offense -- Cam Walker, Damariay Drew and Kam Jackson will be forced to stop, or at least substantially slow down Sean Mannion and his eyepopping 418 passing yards per game average.
The situation on that side of the ball does look at least somewhat better, though -- Jalen Jefferson and Joel Willis are both cleared to play this weekend after suffering head and neck injuries against Washington State two weeks ago.
With BART still on strike, transportation figures to be decidedly iffy for this one -- check out Cal's official guide for getting to the game, if you're planning on attending.
