Cal Opponent Review: Freaky Friday weekend did not disappoint

The only thing that would’ve made this weekend better is a Stanford loss

To say this weekend was crazy would be an understatement. Friday night’s dominant win over 8th ranked Washington State was impressive, but the question now is whether or not we can carry that momentum into the coming weeks. So, looking ahead let’s take a peak and see how our upcoming opponents did this weekend.

Arizona 47, UCLA 30

Arizona handed UCLA their second conference loss this week. The Wildcats QB, Khalil Tate, proved that last week was not a fluke. Tate threw for 148 yards and 1 TD, going 9 of 13. But it wasn’t his passing game that dizzied UCLA’s defense, it was his 230 yards and 2 TDs he rushed for. Meanwhile, Arizona’s defense proved that UCLA’s Josh Rosen is only a mere human; limiting him to 219 yards with 3 interceptions. Needless to say, next week’s matchup against Arizona is going to be one to watch.

Colorado 36, Oregon State 33

Snagging their first conference win, the Buffs managed to beat the Beavers at home. Colorado’s Steven Montez threw for 168 yards and 2 TDs, and running back Phillip Lindsay scored 2 TDs and rushed for 185 yards. On the other side, Oregon State’s Darell Garretson threw no TDs and gave up an interception as well.

Stanford 49, Oregon 7

The weekend could only be so great, right? Stanford’s commanding win over Oregon put them at the top of the Pac-12 standings, tied with USC at 4-1 conference wins. Despite Keller Chryst’s 3 TD’s and 181 total passing yards, the spotlight was on running back, Bryce Love. Love rushed for 147 yards and 2 TDs, making this his 7th 100+ yard game this season. Oregon just couldn’t get anything going on the offensive end, only getting 12 first downs all game, compared to Stanford's 25 first downs.
