Roundtable: Can Arizona football extend its winning streak against Cal to 7 games?

Nathanial Stenchever

The Arizona football team runs onto the field before a game against North Dakota State University on Saturday, Sept. 17, at Arizona Stadium. The Wildcats would go on to win the game 31-28 and advance their record to 2-1. 

Ryan Wohl: University of Arizona 34, University of California, Berkeley 28

The Wildcats are coming off of a great 31-28 victory against North Dakota State University last week while Jayden de Laura’s confidence continues to grow. He fixed his turnover issue versus Mississippi State University during week two while adding a rushing ability to his arsenal. The Golden Bears looked better then they did last season when Arizona won 10-3, but their offense is still an issue. If they can’t score more than 25 points, it’s going to be hard to keep up with the Wildcats. I believe Arizona continues its winning streak and breaks its two game losing streak during their opening contest in Pac-12 play.  

Jason Dayee: Cal 30, Arizona 21

My prediction for the Saturday, Sept. 24 game of Arizona versus the Cal Golden Bears is that Arizona will face its second loss of the season. Arizona has just come off a hard-fought win last week against North Dakota State at home. I believe the Wildcats will come into the game playing super fast and locked in. However, because they are facing a much tougher opponent and on the road, Cal will be able to handle Arizona’s initial onslaught and respond. Then, down the stretch, I believe Cal will have better late-game execution and pull away winning the game 30-21.

Alex Poor: Arizona 28, Cal 20

The offense will keep things rolling for the Wildcats as they look to kick off Pac-12 play against a Cal team they haven’t lost to since 2009. I think Arizona will try to play smart, low-turnover football and run the ball effectively with running backs Michael Wiley and Jonah Coleman, as well as Jayden De Laura when necessary. The defense has also forced a turnover in each game so far this season, and hopefully that trend continues Saturday afternoon.

Cole Johnson: Arizona 21, Cal 17 

The Wildcat football team beat Cal last year for their only win while they were weak and injured. This year, they are competing with good teams, so it won’t be some walk in the park for Arizona.
