Cal fans, we have ACC teams to scout this bowl season. And Oregon State.
With the transfer portal, these games will not be terribly indicative of the teams we end up facing, but it’ll be a good chance to acclimate ourselves with the teams on our radar.
There are other bowl games (full schedule available here), but these are the ones we have eyes on.

(We did miss Syracuse, who got walloped by South Florida last week, but again, portal changes…)
Wow! FSU can now STFU!
Welp. The CFP Committee just got better looking.
Wilcox lost to this Auburn team at home. Yuck.
RIP Beavers, after being decimated by the media oligarchy.
We should sweep the home slate next year. It’ll be disappointing if we don’t…then again, Justin Wilcox…hopefully he puts it together.
All those ACC games are winnable. Miami is a fraud, and NC State is one of the weakest 9 win P5 teams I’ve ever seen…both come to CMS.
I am a grumpy old bear and bias towards west coast football. I'll be honest big turn off. Zero interest, I hope ACC fails! Rooting for low viewership for networks. Once the curiosity wears off we go back to the actual schools location region realignment, like it suppose to be. Unfortunately you can exploit the 18yr olds but you can't move the schools!
AI-generated art puts the flatscreens behind the viewer. There’s hope for us yet.
I never thought I'd see that day that I'd root for Georgia to badly beat someone outside the SEC, but this is where we've come.
