Well folks we have passed the halfway point of the season and the Cougs are sitting pretty at 4-2. This is about as good as even the most optimistic forecasts you could find for the Cougs before the season started, so we have plenty to be excited about. Now we finally get a conference home game as the Beavers roll into Pullman with a 4-1 record and one of the most prolific offenses in the country. Its a night game, its Dads’ Weekend and the expectations are for a crowd that is plenty energized and sporting some swank new capes.
Just like last week, both teams see this game as a major measuring stick for where they can expect to end up in the standings. The Pac-12 North is a 2 ½ team race and the loser here will likely be hanging out with Cal in the basement, even though they’ll get dibs on the bean bag chair. The Cougs are coming off what has to be their most reassuring win of the season while the Beavs are coming off a much needed bye where they were able to get a lot of key players healthy and back in uniform. So who has the edge here? Vegas thinks this one is a toss-up. Lets see what the blog fathers think, shall we?no comments
