Cal Vs. Oregon State: Golden Bears Look To Wrap Up Bowl Eligibility

The California Golden Bears look to get to a bowl game by beating the Oregon State Beavers this weekend.

The California Golden Bears are in good shape after beating up the Washington St. Cougars, and now only need one win to make sure they'll have a postseason berth. It's looking like they'll get their best chance when they play the Oregon St. Beavers in their home finale at AT&T Park this weekend.

Cal has had stunning non-success against the Beavers, losing their previous four matchups and six of the last eight meetings. However, this is probably the worst Oregon State team they'll ever face, as the Beavers are now 2-7 and out of the race for the postseason. It'd be hard for Cal to explain away a defeat like this one when they have a lot to lose and two very tough road contests to close out the season.

Jeff Tedford does not want to be shut out of the postseason two years in a row, and face the hot seat when he returns to Strawberry Canyon in 2012. Cal really needs to get this win and keep the momentum going in the right direction as they close out their season so they can start the transition to the next era of Golden Bear football.
