Golden Bears have top passer in nation but defense will be the key against No. 2 Oregon

California coach Sonny Dykes sees a lot of similarities between the Golden Bears' offense and the one being run by No. 2 Oregon.

There is just one striking difference between the two teams.

The high-scoring Ducks are backed by a defense that has allowed only three touchdowns all season, leading to a trio of blowout victories.

Cal, on the other hand, has yet to hold an opponent under 30 points this season. The Bears have been involved in three straight shootouts, their lone win coming against Portland State of the FCS.

That likely means the two teams are in for another high-scoring game at Autzen Stadium on Saturday night, and Bears freshman quarterback Jared Goff is openly looking forward to it.
