STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Weird things have happened in the Stanford-California rivalry before. There's no greater proof of that than The Play.
For Cal to beat Stanford this year, though, it might take something as equally wild as that memorable five-lateral kickoff return that gave the Golden Bears a victory in the 1982 Big Game.
Cal (1-10, 0-8 Pac-12) has lost nine straight entering Saturday's game at No. 10 Stanford (8-2, 6-2) and is facing what is believed to be the largest odds in the 116th meeting of the Bay Area schools. The Bears, who have dropped 13 straight conference games and are the only team winless in Pac-12 play this season, are 31 1/2-point underdogs.
