28.Oct.2014 Cal @ Oregon State
I’m bearish on the Beavs, but Cal’s defense is just bad enough to make Mannion look good. The Beavs will be angry after last weekend and all the negative talk this week. Angry teams play well. Cal is probably feeling deflated after the Oregon game. Mopey teams don’t play well. I just think the psychology here plays in the Beav’s favor.
Then again, I could be reading it wrong. The Beavs have nothing to play for at this point and a coaching staff out of ideas, all of which are huge obstacles. Still, I think the team rallies within to mentally overcome the adversity and win this game–probably their last one.
38-35 Beavs, and the five remaining fans will celebrate.
