Fresh off a 2-0 sweep in college football including the only Wise Guy of the season so far on Western Kentucky-Bowling Green to go way over the total, top sports handicapper Joe Duffy’s Picks is loaded for a Saturday sweep.
California-Northwestern OVER 61.5
While the Bears wriggled through a winless Pac-12 season with a laughingstock defense, BQ Jared Goff was a brilliant exception. He shattered school single-season records in passing yards, completions and attempts.
The Golden Bears have five players named to preseason award watch lists highlight by Goff (Maxwell and Davey O’Brien), wide receiver Chris Harper (Biletnikoff), running back Daniel Lasco (Doak Walker), punter Cole Leininger (Ray Guy) and running back Khalfani Muhammad (Paul Hornung). Notice no defensive players are mentioned. Four skilled position players and a punter lead the way. Last the defense gave up 45.9 points per game. Overhauled, they are a work in progress. Really the total is not that high in this day and age.
With freshmen Tre Watson and Vic Enwere along with returning running backs Daniel Lasco and Khalfani Muhammad, Cal has more weapons. Their offense is better.
Trevor Siemian and Treyvon Green led a damn good Northwestern offense. Taking over for Cain Colter after an injury, Siemian lined up under center and performed well, throwing for 2,149 yards and 11 touchdowns on just under 60 percent completions including 414 yards and four touchdowns on 31-of-44 passing in a 37-34 win over Illinois in the season finale. Honestly, at least 70 points seems likely.
