SERIES HISTORY: Cal leads 44-25-5. The Bears have won eight in a row, including 31-17 last season. Washington State won 48-38 in Berkeley in 2002.

STORYLINES: The Bears hope to kick-start their season after a killer four-game opening stretch that included three games against Top-25 opponents. ... Freshman Jared Goff is back as the starting quarterback after being pulled late in the first quarter of the Bears' 55-16 loss at Oregon when he fumbled twice in the rain. ... Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday was injured against Stanford but practiced all week and is expected to start. ... Senior safety Alex Logan is expected to formally announce Saturday that he is retiring from football due to injuries. ... Cal coach Sonny Dykes spent seven years on WSU coach Mike Leach's staff at Texas Tech. Cal's Bear Raid offense is a descendant of Leach's Air Raid, one of the main differences being the Bears' faster pace. Cal is averaging 95.0 plays per game, Washington State only 69.8.

INJURY UPDATE: Cal -- OG Matt Cochran (ankle), DE Brennan Scarlett (hand) and DT Mustafa Jalil (knee) are out. RB/KOR Khalfani Muhammad (head) and WR Maurice Harris (shoulder) are doubtful. OT Steven Moore (head) and CB Kam Jackson (ankle) are questionable. Washington State -- None reported.

MATCHUP TO WATCH: Cal's offense vs. Washington State's defense. The Bears hope sunny Bay Area skies prompt the revival of the Bear Raid offense after a rainstorm contributed to five turnovers at Oregon. Look for Cal to try revving its ground game. Brendan Bigelow has looked more comfortable in practice this week, and the Cougars rank 10th in the Pac-12 against the run.

STATS THAT MATTER: Cal has been outscored 72-31 in the first quarter, with opponents averaging 9.9 yards per play. ... WSU (13) and Cal (11) have the most turnovers in the Pac-12. Five of the Cougars' giveaways have occurred in the red zone. ... Washington State ranks 121st among 123 teams nationally in rushing offense (60.6 yards per game) and has fewer rush attempts than any team in the country.
