Golden Nuggets: Cal once again picked as the loser, now by three

Will the bottom of the Pac-12 basement be decided by three points?

Jed Jacobsohn

Oh no... Uncle Ted has decided to exercise his Cal curse on us once again!

Gemmell: Someone will get a conference win. And because the game is in Boulder, I'm going with the Buffs. The Bears continue to suffer injury after injury and they've turned the ball over 25 times. The true freshmen quarterbacks for both teams makes for an interesting storyline, and both teams have explosive wide receivers. With a lot of things being equal, go with the home team. Colorado 28, California 27.

Miller: Both teams are bad on defense, but the Bears seem better equipped to punish the Buffs. Of course, picking against the home team is a kiss of death in the Pac-12. Not sure if my Cal curse still exists, but this might tell me. California 40, Colorado 38.

Athlon has the Buffaloes as 3-point favorites, which basically means no one knows nor cares about this Battle of the Basement. Three of their four experts are picking Colorado in a four-point win, but Mitch Light (best name ever?) has us winning by 7!
