Good morning Coug fans, and welcome back to Cougar Football Saturday. How did you spend the week off? Gearing up for the stretch run, I presume. You’re definitely not finalizing plans for next weekend’s home game, seeing as the kickoff time is still TBD.

Anyway, your Washington State Cougars are in Berserkly today to battle the California Golden Bears in what seems like a must-win game for each team. Can the Cougs take one on the road? Will the Cal voodoo strike again? We’ll find out!

Make sure you catch up on our previews this week. Craig tells you all you need to know about the Bears, and Michael says Anthony Gordon needs to shine against a solid Cal defense.

Zane previews the game using charts that are quite useful, and Emma is here to put your mind at ease and make fun of the Cal mascot (and Cal’s offense, of course).

Podcast vs. Everybody eventually got around to talking about football after being all giddy about that men’s basketball team, and Jesse tells you what to expect from the Cal defense.

Three Bold Predictions

  1. The Pac-12 Network crew will mention how Evan Weaver turned down WSU no less than four times.
  2. Dezmon Patmon has two TDs in the first half, a third in the second half and at least 110 total yards.
  3. Blake Mazza misses his first field goal of the season because he was jinxed by being named a Lou Groza Award semifinalist. It won’t matter because WSU will still win by at least 10 points.

Go Cougs.
