Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — The California Golden Bears football team has started off the season 1-1, before going into one of their biggest games of the year. Their first game was against the #22 ranked Northwestern, and the Bears suffered a tough loss in a shootout score of 44-30. The Bears played a great game, and they outgained the Wildcats by 548 yards to 508 yards. The two teams combined for more than 1,000 yards of offense.
In the Bears second game of the season, they played another high scoring, high offense game, but this time came out on top. This win of 37-30 was the first for the Bears new head coach Sonny Dykes. Although they got the win, the Bears still let an FCS team get 553 yards on their defense. The win will be good going into the Ohio State game, but will their defense be ready to take on the #4 ranked team in the nation? Buy your tickets today to find out.

Ohio State’s starting quarterback, Braxton Miller, will have questionable status for this weekend’s game. The star player suffered a sprained ligament in his left knee during the team’s victory over San Diego State last weekend. Miller was hurt in the first few moments of the game, and did not return to action. Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton went in to replace Miller, and led Ohio to a 42-7 win.
To beat the high ranked Buckeyes, Cal’s fast pace is going to be key. In their first two games, the team has run 194 plays. The Buckeyes are a great team, but they are just not that fast. To beat the Buckeyes, the Golden Bears are going to be on top of their game on defense. The offensive line may be able to keep up in points against Ohio, but it will be up to the defense to stop them from scoring. Last year when these two teams met, Ohio State took the win, but not easily. The final score of the game was 35-28, and was clear that Cal put up a good fight. State went 12-0 last season, so they are not a team to be messed with. Cal will have to give it their all to beat this team. It is surely going to be an exciting day in California Memorial Stadium, so don’t miss out! Purchase your Cal Bears tickets today.
