Looks like we should expect a tough fight and more Cardiac Cal against Oregon

NCAA Football: Stanford at Oregon Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

The 3–0 California Golden Bears will face off against the 3–1 Oregon Ducks on Saturday night in a Pac-12 After Dark fight that’s shaping up to be a close one.

The Vegas odds opened with the Ducks favored by 3.5 points, but that has already shifted down to 3 points at the time of writing.

Oregon will be visiting Berkeley fresh off the heels of a come-from-behind loss to the Stanford Cardinal that was plagued by issues of ball security. Under first-year head coach Mario Cristobal (who was offensive coordinator last year) and led by potential first-overall draft pick Justin Herbert, the Ducks will be a formidable opponent, reminding us of the classic clashes between Tedford’s Bears and the Ducks back in the mid-2000s.
