Cal Opponent Review: Stanford and UCLA both lose!

Did I mention Stanford lost??

NCAA Football: Stanford at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

On top of winning our last home game of the season and taking one step closer to becoming bowl eligible, both of our opponents left this season lost! So let’s take a peek and see how this weekend unfolded for our opponents.

Stanford 21, Washington State 24

Luke Falk and the Cougars offense showed to be more than a recovering Bryce Love and the Cardinals could handle. After trailing for most of the game, Stanford made a comeback attempt. It started with a lucky play towards the end of the third after Stanford’s K.J. Costello fumbled the ball, but managed to recover and turn it into a TD. Then the Cardinal’s defense snagged a pick-6 to put them ahead 21-17. From that point on though, Washington State dominated with a quick TD and an interception to end the game. Falk ended the game with 337 passing yards and 3 TDs to become the Pac-12 all-time passing yards leading. Just a quick reminder to all Cal fans, we DOMINATED Washington State.

UCLA 17, Utah 48

I think it’s safe to say that Utah was sick of losing. After four consecutive losses, the Utes made up for lost time. While UCLA had to leave their starting QB Josh Rosen behind due to a concussion, their defense didn't do the team any favors. The Bruins allowed 506 yards of total offense, including 272 rushing yards. Ouch. After seeing Patrick Laird’s performance this weekend, I can only wait anxiously to see what he’s going to do to UCLA’s defense.

Cal fans, what are your feelings about the remaining games?
