102-95 and we'll see what the story is going forward. can cal, can they shock the world and upset stanford in the 116th edition of the big game. the cardinal listed as 32-point favorites going in. stanford won three straight big games. 1-10 on the year allowing 44 points per game. the question for stanford might be more emotional. can they get up for a cal team after having seen their rose bowl hopes vanish in the loss to usc? the bears still looking for their first elusive victory. but the agony after rough season will be wiped away if they can knock off the cardinal. >> this would be a way to end it on a positive note. it will be a challenge for us. our kids are excited. we have a great week of practice. we got to play well. >> incredible institutions that have great tradition and pride.
