1. Oregon holds Cal out of the end zone
If Washington State can do it, Oregon can absolutely do it.
The Cougars held Cal to just six points two weeks ago which was a bit shocking, but it showed that the Golden Bears have a lackluster offense. They do average over 400 yards per game, but only 24 points. That’s not going to cut it against an aggressive defense like Oregon’s.
The Ducks are going to pick Chase Garbers off twice and hold him to under 200 yards passing while the run game will rush for around 150 yards, keeping the Golden Bears afloat.
But that’s all they’ll get.
Cal will kick a couple of field goals but I see Kayvon Thibodeaux having a monster game along with the linebackers and aggressive secondary. They’ll win the turnover battle and keep the Golden Bears out of the end zone for a second straight game.
Oregon wins this one by 4-5 touchdowns and Cal will be held to eight six or nine points.
What a bounce-back game for the Ducks.
