Montgomery, McCaffrey shine in Stanford’s 45-0 rout of UC-Davis

By Evan Buhler, 2 days 23 hours ago

By Braden Gall, 5 days 11 hours ago
Undefeated should be the Pac-12's goal in Week 1. Every team in the league is favored to win its season opener with the exception of Cal — an 11-point underdog on the road at Northwestern. So barring a Golden Bears’ road upset, the league should be hoping to avoid the upset bug in the first weekend of action.
