California vs Utah NCAAF College Football Prediction

A pair of surprising unbeaten Pac-12 teams will receive a national television showcase late Saturday night when California and Utah square off from Salt Lake City. ESPN will televise Cal-Utah beginning at 10 p.m. Eastern time Saturday.

While such late starts typically dont draw huge viewing audiences, the Cal-Utah game may buck that trend, as both teams are off to unexpected successful starts to the season. In addition, the ESPN College Game Day show will broadcast from Salt Lake City, which will draw even more attention to this interesting California-Utah game.

The Golden Bears are a surprising 5-0 on the 2015 season, while the Utes are 4-0. In the highly competitive Pac-12, where national powers like USC, UCLA, and Oregon were highly ranked in the preseason, California and Utah are the only two unbeaten Pac-12 teams left.

Cal is probably the more surprising unbeaten team at this point in the season, after going 5-7 a year ago, including losing six of their last seven. This season though, the Golden Bears have flipped things around entering the Cal-Utah game, having won their last three games by a combined 13 points. Cal defeated Texas in Week 3, 45-44, when the Longhorns missed a late extra point. And last Saturday, Cal trailed woeful Washington State by eight points at halftime before rallying for a 34-28 win.

The Utes have put together a much more dominating early portion of the season, vaulting themselves into the top 10 in the national rankings entering the Cal-Utah game. The Utes were not ranked in the preseason in 2015 coming off a 9-4 season in which they lost three of their last five regular-season games.

Utah made a couple of big splashes on the national scene with impressive wins early in the season. Jim Harbaughs Michigan coaching debut may have grabbed the majority of the headlines before the season-opening Utah-Michigan game, but the Utes dominated in a 24-17 victory. Michigan has not lost since that game.

But the game that had all of college football buzzing came in Week 4, when Utah traveled to Oregon and throttled the Ducks, 62-20. It was Oregons worst home loss since 1977. The Utes had a bye in Week 5, giving them an extra week to put the Oregon win in the rear view mirror and prepare for Cal-Utah.

Saturday will be the first Cal-Utah game since 2012. California and Utah have split their two meetings since the Utes joined the Pac-12, and the Golden Bears lead the all-time California-Utah series, 5-4.
