Golden Nuggets: Cal-Wazzu Score Predictions + ASU-Colorado Open Thread

The Bears are heavily favored against a Washington State team Mike Leach just called "zombies" and "empty corpses." Anyone else worried about an impending zombie apocalypse this weekend?

I am officially worried about this weekend's game. First it was a road game, then we set ourselves up for a potential post-UCLA hangover. Now Mike Leach called out his seniors as a bunch of zombies. Also, it's Mike Leach Bobblehead Day. I'm pretty sure those are all prerequisites for the apocalypse.

Cal at Washington State, 7:30 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks): The Bears (2-4, 1-2) have won seven straight in this series and beat the WSU 30-7 last year. The Cougars (2-4, 0-3) have so impressed coach Mike Leach that he compared his seniors to “zombies” and “empty corpses.” Cal 28, Washington State 17.

Kevin Gemmell: At this point, the Washington State defense is outperforming the offense -- and we saw what Cal is capable of when it actually puts it together. Something finally clicked, and I don't think the Bears shut it off this week. Cal 27, Washington State 21.

Ted Miller: It's a simple question, really: Can Cal reproduce the focused performance it had against UCLA? If so, the Bears win big. If not, they flop. We like the New Fighting Tedfords to continue their reclamation of the season. Cal 35, Washington State 24.

CAL (minus-4.5) at WASHINGTON STATE: The line jumped to 7.5, and that was before Leach called out his seniors. If the revitalized (for now) Bears start well and don’t give away points, it could be over by halftime. Pick: Cal.
