Meeting with Cal in Vegas

Posted by on Dec 5, 2005 in Blog, BYU Football, Sports

The bowl plans for the cougars are finally complete. For the first time since 2001 BYU is going bowling. The opposing team is the Cal Bears of the Pac 10. If I remember correctly Cal was highly ranked in the preseason. They’ve had a few slip ups and completed the season at 7-4. Although BYU has a similar record I don’t know how likely a victory is considering our lack of success in bowl games.

BYU’s run defense has been much better than the passing D (not a hard task by any means), but I’m afraid Cal’s two outstanding rushers will wear us down. Cal is just a few yards short of having two 1,000 yard rushers.

Time to be optimistic – a win in the Las Vegas bowl would be great for the MWC against a solid Pac 10 school. It’s about time BYU had a bowl victory and the offense can put up points on just about anyone. I think this game depends on whether the cougar defense shows itself.
