BYU Cougars

vs

California Golden Bears
Saturday, November 29, 2014 3:33 PM ET
California Memorial Stadium

 

BYU is 3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS in its last three games, as backup quarterback Christian Stewart improves.

The Cougars shoot for a fourth straight victory, on their way to a bowl, when they take on the 5-6 Cal Bears Saturday afternoon in Berkeley.

Stewart just threw four touchdown passes, without an interception, in BYU's 64-0 victory over Savannah State, giving him a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 10/0 over his last three games, all Cougar victories. Cal, meanwhile, has a nice young quarterback of its own, sophomore Jared Goff, who's thrown 31 touchdown passes this season against six interceptions, getting the Bears to within one victory of bowl eligibility.
