The California Golden Bears are going to be underdogs yet again. As the most brutal stretch of the season winds down, Cal heads home to Berkeley for a Friday night matchup with the Washington State Cougars.

Cal currently is pretty significant underdogs in this game. Washington State is favored by 14.5 points on Friday night.

Of all the teams in the Pac-12, Cal seems to enjoy its greatest deal of success with Washington State. The Bears have won three of their last five games against Wazzu despite having losing records in four of those five seasons, and before that won every game they played for nearly a decade running.

But this is no longer an easy win. Washington State is now one of the more complete Pac-12 football teams out there, and is rolling into this game undefeated. They have a great quarterback in Luke Falk, solid offensive talent, and a fierce defense. Cal will have to earn their points and find some way to stop the Air Raid.

Cal fans, your thoughts on the line?
