With seven games remaining and WSU needing three wins to become bowl eligible, today's game against Cal technically isn't a must-win for WSU. The Cougars could lose today and still finish the regular season with nine wins!
That said, most of the fan scenarios which have WSU reaching a bowl, include a win against Cal. Based on Football Outsiders' F/+ rankings, Cal is the easiest opponent left on the schedule and it's not really close. Today may not be a must-win game, but it is a probably-gonna-need-to-win-if-you're-going-to-make-a-bowl-for-the-first-time-since-2003 game.
Consider this your open thread for College GameDay and the morning and afternoon slate of games before the marquee game of the day begins at 1 p.m. PT.
Mailbag: Pac-12 North vs. SEC West - Pac-12 Blog - ESPN
Ted-Last Saturday morning I was listening to ESPN Radio and they were debating the match-ups of the Pac-12 North and the SEC West (on neutral fields). I believe their match-ups were Al vs. OR, LSU vs. Stanford, Tex AM vs WA, Ole Miss vs OSU, Auburn vs. WSU, and Miss St or Ark vs Cal. One voted these match-ups 4-2 in favor of the SEC, and the other scored it 3-3. (Note: I think both picked LSU over Stanford.) How would you see these match-ups playing out?
There are few coaches in college football who are more familiar with Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense than Cal’s Sonny Dykes.

Can the Washington State Cougars rebound from a brutal loss against Stanford when they take on the California Golden Bears?
The volleyball team lost at Utah on Saturday which shouldn't be much of a surprise because I don't think any WSU team is going to win at Utah, ever.
