UW team defense ranks 108 out of 120 while Cal's team D ranks 21 nationally, according to USA Today stats. This to me is a big disparity.
UW is near the very bottom against the pass and around 3/4s against the run.
UW has played Eastern Washington, Hawaii and Nebraska. Cal of course has played Fresno, Colo and Presby. There's stat padding in E Wash and Presby but the other games seem a fair measure. UW took a bigger hit against Neb.
So the question is, can Cal exploit UW's defense? Are the stats a misrepresentation and too early? What would you call for Cal's attack against UWs defense, lots of pistol/spread?
