Who's Playing

California Golden Bears (home) vs. Washington Huskies (away)

Current records: California 4-3; Washington 6-2

What to Know

Washington will be playing 60 minutes this week, but they're expected to have things wrapped up well before that. They will square off against California at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. Washington doesn't have the home-field advantage, but they do enjoy a 11.5-point advantage in the spread.

Washington had a rough outing against Oregon two weeks ago, but a little bit of home cooking seems to have fixed things right up. Washington was able to grind out a solid win over Colorado last Saturday, winning 27-13. Washington's success was spearheaded by the efforts of Salvon Ahmed, who rushed for 73 yards and 1 touchdown, and Jake Browning, who passed for 150 yards and 1 touchdown. That makes it five straight good games in a row from Browning.

Meanwhile, California has had to suffer through a three-game losing streak, but that streak is no more. They steamrollered Oregon St. 49-7. The high-flying offensive effort was a definite turnaround from California's flat performance the matchup before.

Washington took their match against California the last time the two teams met by a conclusive 38-7 score. The rematch might be a little tougher for Washington since the squad won't have home-field advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
