USC visits Cal this weekend, so what can the Bears learn from their two losses, and the Trojans' win over Utah?

Get a preview of this weekend's festivities from the football field to the basketball court in our Bear Republic Podcast.

Our Bear Republic Podcast with VSporto is back, and we're reviewing the losses to Utah and UCLA. We dig deep into just why the Bears lost to the Utes and Bruins -- two very different propositions -- and analyze what we can expect from the Bears on Saturday against USC.

The Bear Raid has certainly been off, but why? Will that change against the Trojans?

How does Cal's lack of a run game since Texas (3.3 yards per carry) affected the way teams have played Cal's receivers? It's certainly had an affect on Kenny LawlerBryce Treggs and Jared Goff.

Speaking of Goff, this week's big feature and video essay focus on his connections with the legenary Joe Roth. Take a read and a watch HERE.

USC, were it not for Cameron Smith's three picks last week, would have the second-fewest interceptions in the conference, but is there really room to move in the back half of the Trojans' defense?

In our final 10 minutes, we talk about Cal basketball's Midnight Madness, and who the Bears can expect in the house, recruit-wise. Top Stories
