In a bowl elimination game, Washington travels to Berkeley to face a 5-6 Cal Bears team.
Both the Bears and the Huskies need a victory to get bowl eligible, with the Huskies needing to close out their season with 2 victories to reach the magic 6-6 mark. Cal is coming off a bitter game against their cross-town rival Stanford, a 48-14 loss that followed a close game to Oregon the week prior. The Washington game will be their third consecutive home game.
The Bears will be led by Brock Mansion at quarterback, filling in for the injured Kevin Riley. Riley was lost for the season in a game against Oregon State. The Huskies, meanwhile, will have Jake at quarterback and even though he won’t still be 100%, his ribs are getting better each week.
“I think there’s still some things lingering” Washington Coach Steve Sarkisian said. “But he feels much better than he has.”
The game will be at 12:30 p.m., and will be televised live on FSN-NW.
