Alas! The Big Game is finally upon us. Cal has not won the Axe since Andrew Luck’s freshman year at the Farm where he threw a game-sealing interception. (Still happy Gerhart did not get the ball.)
Heading into the rivalry on a six-game winning streak, Stanford has had a disappointing year for their standards. They will not be playing in the Rose Bowl, which I am happy about. We have given up 60+ points in back-to-back games. While most people know Cal’s defense has not been good, these stats will reassure any doubt. 127/128 in yards given up and 128/128 in points allowed in all of FBS. Sigh. Surprised we’re only 11-point underdogs, but you never know. Go Bears.
