The California Golden Bears return to Berkeley eight nights after one of the most impressive results in Cal football history. After dismantling a top-ten opponent in the Washington State Cougars, Cal must get back to business against the high-octane Arizona Wildcats offense.
Despite the decisive win last week, Cal cannot even come close to resting on their laurels. Arizona boasts the number-one scoring offense in the nation, and Cal’s defense has not performed quite as well dealing with run-first attacks. Cal will also have to buffer themselves against the loss of Devante Downs, who is out for the season. He joins a list of Cal’s best offensive and defensive weapons, as the Bears now are very much a scrappy group.
So Cal must persist. Bottom-25 offense. One of the toughest schedules in college football. And 4–3 nonetheless.
Different year. Different team.
