The Washington State Cougars are looking to save their season with a strong second half of Pac-12 play. That quest continues on Saturday afternoon as the team travels south to take on the Cal Golden Bears.
The Bears are coming off an embarrassing loss to the UCLA Bruins, but that did not stop the oddsmakers in Las Vegas from picking Cal as nine-point favorites this weekend. According to Odds Shark, WSU will be anywhere from nine to 10-point underdogs.
As for the Cougars, the team may have fallen to the high-flying Oregon Ducks this past weekend, but they battled throughout the entire game and stayed within striking distance until late in the second half. This is a team that has been battered by injuries this season and a road victory over the Bears would be huge for the program moving forward.
Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. in Berkley.
