    Week 11 in After Midnight brings us a uneventful week , but there is one game that stands out this week. The Washington State Cougs take on Cal this week. Both teams have struggled this year and look to be out of the confrence race , but for the Cougs coming in at 2-6 they must win this game to keep hopes of a bowl game alive. For Cal this is cahnce to get back over .500 on the season.

    In what I see as a defensive struggle , both teams allowing less than 20 points a game on the year , I have the Cougs pulling off a stunning upset on the road. I look for the Cougs to look to strike early and play ball control againts the woeful Cal bear offense that is 118th in total yards per game.

    The questions that will be answered this week will be : Can the Cougs make a bowl game ? And is Cal really a average team , or a second tier team that hasnt gotten over the hump yet ? Cal has 3 of its four losses on the season to top 5 teams that are undeafeated, which does make them hard to figure out.

    In a close slugfest I have the Cougs coming out on top.

    WSU 10
    Cal 3

    I think jayrah gets back on track with a 20-10 victory, eliminating cougs from the bowl picture.

    Ive got the cougs in this one. They have a lot to play for, where as Cal does not.

    Hasn't Jayrah reached 6 wins? He's bowl eligible already, and is out of the division title picture.

    Cougs needs to win out to become bowl eligible.

    I am not winning 6 games this season. I only need to win one or two more and things will be fine. It would be nice to beat Jayrah. If the Cougs win it will probably new like 27-24. My defense sucks, I make any offense look good. We are about to find out how bad CAL's offense really is

    You've got winnable CPU games left cougs. Utah might be tricky, but if you win this, a bowl game is not out of the realm of possibility

    It'll be out of reach tomorrow night. Cal has had a really good week of practice and my coaching staff feels really good about Boehm coming in at qb. Nice game to have at home as well.

    Im taking the underdog Cougars in this one. If they stop the run and hold onto the damn ball, they will be right there and pull the game out in the end.

    WSU - 17
    Cal - 13
