The California Golden Bears get to play one extra game this season after beating the Oregon St. Beavers last night at AT&T Park, as they won their sixth game of the season and ensured bowl eligibility. Cal is now fighting with a bunch of the middle-tier Pac-12 squads for the bowls somewhere in the middle of the conference. SB Nation has Cal headed to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in AT&T Park in their latest projections to face off with the Miami Hurricanes in a rematch of the 2008 Emerald Bowl in AT&T Park.
With Cal likely to be underdogs in their last two games of the season when they go on the road to play the Stanford Cardinal and the Arizona St. Sun Devils, it's likely that the best-case scenario is probably 7-5 for the Bears, with a likely scenario of 6-6. Cal is likely in contention for any of the middle-tier bowls, and because of the proximity of Cal to San Francisco, the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl is a distinct possibility. The Las Vegas Bowl and the New Mexico Bowl also have pretty strong looks.
