In a Friday night showcase game in the PAC-12, two explosive offenses and two penetrable defenses meet in Berkeley, this is the perfect recipe for a large scoring game. Here's our NCAAF Pick

The Ducks and Golden Bears are both coming off byes; Oregon after being routed by the Washington Huskies and Heisman contender Jake Browning whilst Cal are off an overtime loss to Oregon State respectively.

The Ducks under the tenure of Mark Helfrich are currently in an unfamiliar predicament. Oregon is currently in their longest losing streak in a decade while the Golden Bears are rebounding after no. 1 draft pick, Jared Goff left to play/sit behind Case Keenum in the NFL.

Davis Webb, Goff's replacement, has taken up the mantle after transferring from Texas Tech. Webb's shredded defenses in the process, linking up with former walk-on, Chad Hansen, and that duo has proved to be dynamite. Webb and the Golden Bears dismantle opposition systematically, utilizing Hansen with a mix of an air raid and leaning on Khalfani Muhammad in an underrated running attack.

On the other side of the field Friday night, the Ducks who are in dramatic free fall and are consequently looking for a fresh start following their bye will attempt to lean on Freshman QB Justin Herbert. Herbert showed promise in his first start against an unrelenting defense in the aforementioned Huskies. The Ducks should utilize NFL hopeful Royce Freeman behind a youthful offensive line to compete with Cal's intense offense Friday.

Lastly, anticipate points in this contest. The duo has impotent defenses and are incapable of showing resolve against dynamic offenses. Take the over with the line currently at 87.5 and don't be surprised if the Cal and Oregon break 100 points in a pure PAC-12 shoutout.
