Dawgman.com By-The-Numbers: California Golden Bears

By-The-Numbers is back! Pac-12 play has started, and all you have to do is look at the numbers to know that this matchup between Washington and California has 'BARNBURNER' written all over it. The Golden Bears are looking more like the Golden Maseratis with their offensive production, led by the man with the Golden Arm - Jared Goff. But how will the Huskies' Tightwad Hill-esque defense respond? This strength-versus-strength matchup makes the numbers stand out all the more.
