Cal is ranked No. 20 in the latest Sagarin computer ratings, highest among Pac-12 Conference teams.
San Diego State, which hosts the Bears on Sunday, is No. 36. Missouri is No. 7.

Only one game tonight involving the Pac-12, which is now 9-1 on the week . . .
— Stanford 72, Seattle 49: Anthony Brown scored a season-high 15 points and the Cardinal (7-1) won easily at Key Arena in Seattle. Stanford prevailed despite a scoreless, 0-for-7 shooting night by senior Josh Owens, who entered the game as the Pac-12’s second-most accurate shooter (65.0 percent).
