It’s way too late, so I’ll be brief.
Today’s Big Game is very ‘winnable’ for Cal. The formula:
- stuff Stanfurd’s power running game
- leave Steve Williams and Kameron Jackson in single coverage on Stanfurd’s WRs (if they have any)
- on 3rd and long, cover the tight ends!!
The Bears have a spotty history when it comes to covering TEs. They’ll stop a couple of plays cold — and then give up 15 yards to a wide-open TE, and move the chains.
Stopping the run is definitely the key for the Bears.
That, and protecting Zach Maynard — or giving him enough time to make something happen.
Cal wins this one by 3.
