California Golden Bears at Oregon State Beavers

Saturday October 30, 2010 3:30 PM EST

Line: Oregon State -3

Oregon State had an extra week to get over their 2 OT loss at Washington 35-34. That loss snapped a two game winning streak and now the Beavers find themselves at .500. Cal got stomped two weeks ago at USC 48-14 then whooped on Arizona State at home last weekend 50-17.

Stats to consider:

Cal Bears:

  • Cal is 4-3 with a 2-2 Pac-10 record.
  • Cal is 0-3 on the road this season with only one loss coming by less than 21 points.
  • Points against per game: 20.6 (36th)
  • Points for per game: 34.7 (23rd)
  • Passing yards a game: 199 (76th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 178.3 (36th

Oregon State Beavers:

  • The Beavers are 3-3 with a 2-1 Pac-10 record.
  • They are 2-1 at home this season. Their first loss came vs TCU week 1 30-21.
  • Points against per game: 30.8 (93rd)
  • Points for per game: 29 (55th)
  • Passing yards a game: 223.7 (57th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 120.7 (92nd)

What to watch for:

  • Cal has not looked good away from home as their 0-3 record shows.
  • Cal Senior RB Shane Vereen has 721 yards and 10 TDs. He also has 172 receiving yards with another 3 TDs.
  • The Beavers will need a big game out of Junior RB Jacquizz Rodgers. Rodgers has 621 yards and 10 TDs. He also has 128 receiving yards and 2 TDs.

As far as football picks go, this is a tough one. The way Cal has played on the road is an easy way for me to sort thru this one. This game will come down to who gets a better game out of their RBs. Both Vereen for Cal and Rodgers for Oregon State are extremely talented. They will be the focus for the game and Cal will lose based on its’ previous road success, or lack there of.
