On paper, this is not a very appealing Pac-12 game. Neither team has much of a chance at making a run in the Pac-12 North and a mediocre bowl game (at best) could be achieved with a strong finish to the season.
All of this being said, whichever team loses on Saturday can pretty much give up on any postseason aspirations in 2011. A defeat would be devastating for Cal and WSU has been battered and beaten all season long. Each side needs a win badly.
