By-The-Numbers: California

By-The-Numbers is back after taking the long way home from Lincoln. What a doozy! But we found time to crunch the numbers versus Cal, and the digits look dire. But let's face it - any team will look like world beaters against UW's defense when you just look at the stats. They are one BCS defense that looks positively offensive. And that doesn't mean that Keith Price is playing linebacker!
