STANFORD, Calif. -- The Stanford Cardinal (8-2) host the California Bears (6-4) on Saturday at Stanford Stadium.
Cal is coming off a 54-24 win against Oregon State. The victory granted the Golden Bears their first bowl bid since 2011.
Last week, Stanford fell 38-36 to Oregon at home. Running back Christian McCaffrey set a school record with his eighth-straight 100-yard rushing performance, as he ran for 147 yards and a touchdown in the loss.
Tonight, the Golden Bears will try to take back the Axe for the first time since 2009. Last year, the Cardinal beat Cal 38-17 for its fifth straight Big Game victory. Stanford is ranked 11th and favored. But Cal hopes for an upset, coming off last week's huge victory.
