The Beavers and Golden Bears have split the last 10 meetings between the two teams.

 

Golden Bears Looking For First Win

After having their first two games of the season canceled because of the coronavirus, the Golden Bears were blown out by UCLA in their home opener. They will be trying to bounce back from the loss and pick up their first win of the season when they face the Beavers on Saturday.

Chase Garbers completed 54.5 percent of his passes for 122 yards and one interception. Christopher Brown Jr. led the team with 25 rushing yards, while Collin Moore led the team with 28 receiving yards. They will need to play better offensively to give themselves a chance in this game.

Defensively, the Golden Bears gave up 34 points in their loss to UCLA, 27 of which came at halftime. They will need to avoid another big deficit at the half if they want to get the win.
