Shootout in the Desert

The Cal Bears are 2-0 (yesss!!) and full of confidence. So are the Arizona Wildcats.  This should be an exciting game between two evenly-matched teams. The Wildcats have put up some very impressive numbers in 2014 with their rushing attack, … Continue reading

Hornets Beat the Spread?
