After last week's forgettable performance in Reno, the Golden Bears find themselves in an odd spot as they prepare to start conference play later tonight.

Their Rose Bowl hopes, for all intents and purposes, have transmogrified into something more akin to a collective pipe dream.

The Bears are 6.5-point underdogs, and the Wildcats are riding a high that they haven't felt in nearly a decade.
