Washington Has Historically Made Easy Work Of Cal

The Washington Huskies look to continue their perfect season Saturday when they visit a Cal team they have traditionally fared well against. The Huskies have gone 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their past seven against the Golden Bears, including a dominant 31-7 victory in their last meeting in 2014.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in Washington's last 7 games against Cal.
  • Washington is 7-0 SU in its last 7 games against the Pac-12.
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of Washington's last 11 games.

Washington’s offense has been prolific, scoring at least 35 points in seven of eight games this season. Though Jake Browning justifiably gets all the headlines, running back Myles Gaskin has been unstoppable, as the running back has rushed for 576 yards and five touchdowns in the past four games. 

Cal kind of got screwed last week, taking on a USC team coming off a bye with a short week. But that doesn’t mean the rush defense wouldn’t have been bad anyway, as Cal has surrendered 200-plus rushing yards five times this season, including 398 against the Trojans.
