Keenan Allen could miss Cal's home game against Oregon this coming week due to a knee injury
California Golden Bears
When: Nov. 10, 7:30 p.m. PT at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, Calif.
Record: 3-7 overall, 2-5 Pac-12, fifth in North division
Last game: Lost to Washington Huskies, 21-13, at home
Last meeting vs. Oregon: Lost to Ducks, 43-15, at Eugene, Ore.
Why the Ducks should be worried
It was just two years ago when Oregon last met Cal in Berkeley, Calif., and the Bears put up a huge challenge and limited the Ducks' offense to one touchdown.
Oregon won the game, 15-13 (via GoDucks.com). Memorial Stadium has been a tough place to play for the Ducks in recent years, as Oregon lost meetings in 2006 and 2008.
The Bears' resume this season includes a victory over No. 19 UCLA, 43-17, on Oct. 6 and a near-upset over Ohio State early on. Cal always has talented players, but the question is whether they can put it together at the right time.
Why the Ducks should win
Cal is struggling big time over the last three weeks, including an ugly 21-13 loss to Washington at home.
The Bears need to score points, but they've only topped the 30-point mark three times out of 10 games this season.
Starting quarterback Zach Maynard is doubtful after a left knee injury forced him out in the fourth quarter against Washington (via Yahoo! Sports). The Bears could also be without star wide receiver Keenan Allen for possibly another week or two due to a knee injury (via Jeff Faraudo of the San Jose Mercury News).
A game without their starting quarterback and star wideout could get ugly.
