Can Cal Record Rare Back-To-Back Wins Vs Oregon?

Cal and Oregon found themselves in a shootout last season with the two teams combining for 101 points in a double-overtime thriller. The Golden Bears ultimately walked away with the win, which ended their stretch of seven consecutive losses against the Ducks. Cal will look for its first back-to-back wins vs Oregon since the 2008 season in Eugene on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in Oregon’s last 6 games at home.
  • Oregon is 2-9 ATS in its last 11 games against the Pac-12.
  • Cal is 1-9 SU in its last 10 games on the road.

Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert is surely smiling when he thinks about playing Cal after the then-freshman accounted for 414 yards of offense and six touchdowns against the Ducks last season. Herbert ran the Oregon offense wonderfully last week but the defense didn’t hold up its end of the bargain, surrendering 489 yards of offense and 38:06 minutes of possession to Arizona State.

Despite an offense that consistently shot itself in the foot, Cal hung around with USC last week for three quarters. Coach Justin Wilcox has worked wonders on the defense, helping the team reduce its yards allowed per game from 518 in 2016 to 404 this season. The staff has continued to stand behind Ross Bowers at quarterback but the sophomore has completed just 47.4 percent of his passes with 2 TDs and 6 INTs in the past two games.
