PICK: I’m going to stick with Cal Baptist. This should be a pretty interesting matchup, though. Both teams are fresh off comeback wins. Cal Baptist took care of a decent UC Riverside team in their last outing. Despite being just 2-2 over their last four games, the Lancers have been competitive: Cal Baptist’s last two losses have come by just four combined points. As for Cal Poly, so long as they’re able to generate some early offense I think they’ll be able to hang around in this one. I ultimately like the Lancers to cover, though.
