The Oregon Ducks pay a visit to their Pac-12 rival, the California Golden Bears on Saturday. This game comes on the heals of a big win over USC and the week before they put their national title hopes on the line against No. 14 Stanford.

This is a team that would be easy for Oregon to overlook. The Ducks had a shootout against the Trojans and finish their regular season with a pair of top-15 teams.

Cal is coming off a tough, ugly loss to Washington last Friday. The Bears saw their slim bowl aspirations evaporate in that game, but would relish knocking off one of the top teams in the country.

Cal will do its best to be prepared, but the upset isn't going to happen.

Cal is simply overmatched in this game and will struggle to keep the score respectable.

Betting Line (via OddsShark)

Over/Under: OFF, Spread: Oregon -27.5

Scoring hasn't been an issue for the Ducks this season. The only team that has limited their scoring prospects are their own coaches. 

Oregon needs to continue to add style points to make its case for reaching the National Championship Game, and Kenjon Barner needs 700 yards in his final three games to hit the 2,000-yard mark. He has a shot at the Heisman Trophy and his team is going to keep him in the game a bit longer to add to his stats.

Take the Ducks in this matchup.

BCS/Top-25 Implications

This game couldn't be any bigger for Oregon or any less meaningful for Cal relative to BCS status. Oregon needs to win, and do so convincingly, to make its case for inclusion in the BCS Championship Game.

A loss for Oregon doesn't impact its trek for a Pac-12 Championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl, but Oregon has something bigger in mind.

Oregon Player to Watch: Kenjon Barner, RB

Are you kidding me? Barner had 321 yards on 38 carries against the Trojans last weekend with five touchdowns?

Not a bad day for the senior.

Fans finally got to see what Barner and the Oregon offense is capable of doing when they are in a contested game. He won't need to carry the ball nearly so much this week, but look for the Ducks to give him a chance to run the ball but stay fresh for two very big games to finish off their regular season.

Cal Player to Watch: Nick Forbes, ILB

This is a hard position to determine, as several key players are questionable headed into the game, but the key for Cal staying close in this game will be stopping the Oregon ground attack. 

Forbes had a good week against the Huskies. He had 11 tackles, intercepted a pass and recovered two fumbles. He'll need to spark his unit again on Saturday.

 

Prediction: Oregon 55, Cal 10

Oregon is on a different level than almost every other college team. The Ducks are an elite offensive unit that can score almost at will and their defense is good enough to silence most offenses.

This is a game that doesn't bode well for Cal.
