Washington Huskies at California

Andy Patton – After rolling to a comfortable victory over the Buffs at home last week, I think the Huskies will carry that momentum into a victory in a tough road matchup at Cal. Cal has made big improvements in the last year, and their strange-but-effective two-quarterback attack could give the Huskies fits. Ultimately, coach Peterson and company should take care of things down south though.

Matt Barry – The Huskies bounced back after a tough loss to Oregon by beating a good Colorado team last week. Their eye is still on the PAC-12 North title. They have been hit by injuries, but Salvon Ahmed and Aaron Fuller have been producing in a big way of late. The Bears are 4-3 and at home. This game might be close for a while as UW has struggled through some slow starts. But I see the Huskies winning here. Too much talent and too much still at stake.

Jordan Cordano – The Huskies (6-2) are coming off of an impressive 27-13 bounce-back win vs Colorado after losing a heartbreaker in overtime two weeks ago to the Oregon Ducks. Washington may be the favorite in this one but they can’t overlook a Cal team that was once ranked in the top 25 this season.

The Golden Bears (4-3) had a blowout win in Corvallis last week beating the Beavers 49-7. The Huskies have a mismatch at almost every position in this one and Jake Browning being the game manager that he is will have to have a clean game in order to grab a win on the road. Washington should win this game by at least a couple of scores.

Ed Stein – Just like Colorado last week, Cal is a quasi-good team. They aren’t in Washington’s weight class, however. The Huskies will run all over Cal no matter if it’s Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, Kamari Pleasant, or Sean McGrew. Covering 12 points on the road might be a stretch, but UW will win.
