Even though Cal is coming off a loss, the Bears have been playing well for weeks now. Losing by five at Arizona is certainly not a bad loss and is was coming off a five-game win streak, including a win over Stanford. The Bears following up their last loss with an 11-point win on the road and I think they will be able to come through tonight as well. Stanford hasn’t had a tremendous performance in some time and being at home hasn’t led to much of a rise in play either.
