Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 California Golden Bears football schedule
2017 California Golden Bears Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario
The Bears show that it really is a new era under the new coaching regime, with a win at North Carolina to kick things off. They shock Ole Miss and USC at home, and split the road games at Oregon and Washington before the schedule eases up a bit. Realistically, Cal is 4-2 before facing Washington State and Arizona. Win those, get by Colorado on the road and Oregon State at home, and then comes the week off to prepare for trips to Stanford and UCLA. If everything works, though, 8-4 is probably the ceiling.

Cal loses everything. It beats Weber State, but loses at North Carolina and can’t handle Ole Miss, USC, Oregon and Washington on the way to a not-that-shocking 1-5 start. The Bears struggle over the second half of the season with a loss at Colorado, and closing out with losses at Stanford and UCLA on the way to an ugly 3-9 record.
