The California Golden Bears (2-5, 1-3 Pac-12) take on the Oregon State Beavers (5-2, 3-1 Pac-12) in a last-meets-first-place inter-division contest on Saturday, Oct. 30.

Oregon State, which currently sits at the top of the Pac-12 North division, has beaten California in the last two match-ups.

And the Beavers’ offense, which leads the conference in scoring with an average of 35.1 points per game, will look to make it three in a row.

Oregon State’s offense has rushed for 200 or more yards in the last six games, and running back B.J. Baylor will be the player to watch.

Baylor has run for 100 yards in each of the last four games and ranks sixth nationally for rushing yards per game this season at 118.4.

Despite the blockbuster offensive statistics for the Beavers, Las Vegas oddsmakers expect California v. Oregon State to be a close game.

The most recent Cal v. Oregon State college football betting spread is California +2, according to a sample of offered odds by U.S. sportsbooks collected by on Oct. 29. The betting line implies California is a two-point underdog against Oregon State.
