I really like this San Diego State team this season and think that they will give Cal a lot of troubles in this game. The Cal offense looked strong against Hawaii, but will face one of the best defenses in the country in this game. I like the San Diego State defense to control the game and for the San Diego State offense to take advantage of an average Cal defense. I like San Diego State here.
