After a strong start to the season, the Washington State Cougars have not been able to catch a break. Despite winning their first conference game against Colorado, the team has lost four in a row. In that span, WSU has given up 139 points and struggled to play a complete football game for all four quarters.
For California, they come in as a team with their own struggles. Head coach Jeff Tedford is on the hot seat and quarterback Zach Maynard has played miserably the last few weeks. Simply put, the Bears are desperate for a win.
