Cheez-It Bowl Preview: Cal Defense Should Control Game Against TCU

Cheez-It Bowl – TCU Horned Frogs vs. California Golden Bears (-1.0)

Wed., December 26, 9:00 pm ET

Three things to know before betting on TCU-California:

1. While TCU is 6-3 straight up in its last nine bowl games, the Horned Frogs are just 2-7 against the spread. Meanwhile, the Golden Bears are playing in their first bowl game since Jared Goff lit up Air Force for 467 yards with six touchdowns and no picks back in 2015. Current head coach Justin Wilcox has breathed new life into this Cal program, and his players will be fired up to earn a win for him here.
