The Bear Raid is coming to Autzen.
New California coach Sonny Dykes and his re-tooled Golden Bears visit No. 2 Oregon with both teams coming off byes, giving them plenty of time to ponder what they might see Saturday night in the conference opener for both teams.
For Oregon, it will be Dykes' pass-happy offense led by freshman quarterback Jared Goff, who is making his first start on the road. He leads the nation with an average of 435.3 yards passing.
But he'll be up against an Oregon defense that has allowed opponents an average of just 9 points per game, tying them for fifth nationally. The Ducks have allowed an average of 189.3 yards passing per game, but only one touchdown reception.

The scoreboard operator figures to be busy Saturday when California visits second-ranked Oregon, which has scored more than 50 points in each of its first three games.

''Just a regular game in front of a bunch of crazy people,'' he said.
The freshman quarterback is having a sensational start to his...
1. In wet, windy weather, getting off to a good start is crucial. Very difficult to come from behind in poor conditions, and if the Ducks can bury the Bears early, they'll lose their will in unpleasant conditions. During the week Brian Jackson and Avery Patterson talked about making Jared Goff and his teammates uncomfortable. A strong start provides a sense of inevitability-...
Kaileb Rodriguez has been on Nevada’s radar for quite some time now —they started recruiting him when he was 15-years-old.
However, when California made its offer to Rodriguez about two years later, he simply couldn’t resist playing for a bigger program. It didn’t turn out so well because after a sour first semester with the Golden Bears, Rodriguez knew he had to transfer.
