Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
California’s offense is terrific. The Golden Bears amassed 507 total yards in the home win over Texas. They racked up 636 yards in the home win over Oregon. On average, Cal scores 41.2 points per game while going for 536.5 total yards per game.
The Golden Bears’ offense is great. But the defense isn’t very good at all. That’s where California gets into trouble. After USC rushed out to a 21 to 0 lead over California in the Golden Bears’ last game, Cal had to start pressing on offense.
USC ended up beating Cal 45 to 24. The same sort of thing could happen to California against Washington.
The Huskies average 46 points per game. Washington’s offense averages 474 yards per game. Unlike Texas and Oregon, Washington has the offense and the defense to beat up California in this matchup. I like Washington to cover big.
