CALIFORNIA @ UTAH (TOTAL IS LINED AT: 36 1/2) – Not sure I’ve ever seen a Total of Pac-12 teams this low. Utah Defense has held it’s opponents to 10 total points the last 10 quarters of play, winning by combined score of (111-23) the past 3 games. Now they will face a struggling Cal Offense playing it’s 3rd string QB on the Road, in a late night game, and an already pathetic Offensive Unit (Cal) that is ranked dead last in scoring Offense and Total Yards in Pac-12 play. Give credit to Cal’s Defense, as it has not allowed an opponent to score over 25 points in 14 straight games, and that number becomes more amazing as the Offense has left the Defense in poor field position many times in that span.
BE EXTRA CAREFUL:
APPALACHIAN STATE has a very easy game Saturday vs. one of the worst Offenses in the country, S, Alabama. They can likely name the score here, but be very leery here as they play again in just 5 days vs. second place Ga Southern.
GREAT DEFENSES WILL ALMOST ALWAYS KEEP YOU IN THE GAME:
AUBURN DEFENSE – most points allowed has been 24 points so far this season. LSU Defense not too shabby either, and LSU has owned this Series at LSU Tiger Stadium, winning 9 straight times.
CLEMSON DEFENSE – Has held all 7 opponents to 300 total yards or less and facing super stud Boston College – RB Dillon the past 2 years, they’ve completely shut him down, allowing only (2.8) yards per carry on 34 rushes.
