The Stanford Cardinal went into their game last week knowing that all they had to do was win their final three games and they would likely end up in the college football playoff. Stanford would stumble against Oregon though and now goes into their game against the California Golden Bears looking to rebound and potentially make the Rose Bowl instead. Stanford is 8-2 overall and 7-1 in the Pac-12 Conference while California is 6-4 overall and 3-4 in the conference.
Stanford lost 38-36 to Oregon last week as a late two-point conversion didn’t work. Kevin Hogan has thrown for 2,135 yards, 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Christian McCaffrey is making it look easy in the running game with 1,354 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. Michael Rector has 26 catches for 416 yards and four touchdowns to lead the receivers. This has now turned into a game that the Cardinal must win for their own confidence moving forward.
California broke a long losing streak last week with a 54-24 win over Oregon State. Jared Goff has 3,324 passing yards, 30 touchdowns and 13 interceptions for the year while finding Bryce Treggs quite a bit deep with 29 catches for 564 yards and four touchdowns. Khalfani Muhammad has been leading the run game with 524 yards and a touchdown for the season. Can the Bears get to their average of 511.8 yards a game against a solid Stanford defense? That will be the difference in this game in whether or not an upset happens or not.
