Huskies morning links: Is Cal having the craziest three-week stretch in college football history?

The New York Post has called Cal’s last three weeks the craziest stretch in college football history.

It’s hard to imagine a crazier stretch.

Cal lost its Pac-12 opener at Arizona on a “Hill Mary” at the end of the game, losing 49-45. The Bears then beat Colorado 59-56 in double overtime, before pulling out a 60-59 victory at Washington State late Saturday in a game featuring roughly 17,000 passing yards.

The result? The Bears are 2-1 and in first place in the Pac-12 North entering Saturday’s showdown with the Huskies at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley (3 p.m., Pac-12 Networks). That’s pretty remarkable considering Cal carried a 15-game conference losing streak into that Colorado game.

“I just know they can score points and move the ball with the best of them,” UW coach Chris Petersen said Monday. “They’ve got a good system, really good quarterback, really good receivers, really good running back. Their O-line is big, mauler-type guys that keep guys covered up. They are hard to get off blocks. So they’ve got a really good thing going. When you see that, game after game, all of a sudden you’re saying this is pretty good. That’s what I see out of those guys.”
