Cal (7-5, 5-7 ATS) takes the field with one of the top quarterbacks in the country in Jared Goff. Goff has thrown for 4,252 yards and 37 touchdowns this season and is primed to be a top draft pick in 2016. He faces a tough challenge against Air Force (8-5, 9-4 ATS), which has the 23rd-ranked pass defense in the nation. The Falcons allowed just 190.4 yards per game through the air this season. Oddsmakers still see big things for Goff, as his over/under for passing yards today is set at 337.5. Goff has went over that number in his last three games and five total games this season.
On the other side of the ball, Air Force brings the third-ranked rushing attack to the field. The Falcons average 322.1 yards per game on the ground, led by Jacobi Owens, who has run for 1,009 yards and six touchdowns. For today’s game, Owens has been given an over/under of 85.5 rushing yards. Cal is not good against the run, allowing 203.5 rushing yards per game this season. That could help Owens, who has run for at least 86 yards just for times this season.
