It looks like the near-upset against Oregon wasn't enough to convince anyone that Cal will upset the Cardinal on Saturday.

Ted Miller predicts a Cal loss.

Stanford 28, California 20: The Cardinal has too much at stake to lose the Big Game. Stanford's advantage at quarterback will be too much to overcome for Cal, even playing at home. And will this be Andrew Luck's final Big Game? And what about Jim Harbaugh? 

ESPN's AccuScore simulator anticipates Cal will average 24 points to Stanford's 30.8.  Cal won 32.8% of the simulated games. 

Phil Steele's simulator predicts a 26-19 Stanford win.

Bruce Feldman predicts a 27-21 Stanford victory.

John Tamahana says the difference in QBs will lead Stanford to a relatively easy victory, 31-17.

Jon Wilner picks Cal to cover the spread (-8) but picks Stanford to win.

All four Yahoo writers and 94% of their readers pick Stanford to win.

All five CBS writers pick Stanford to win.

After the jump players look back on last year's Big Game win, Harbaugh talks about preparing for the Cal defense, and basketball pulls away from CSUN to tip the season off with a win.
