Football: Cal to play Presbyterian College

With Jonathan taking some well-deserved vacation, here’s some news you will want:

Cal will play a non-conference football game Sept. 17 at AT&T Park against Presbyterian College, an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision team from Clinton, S.C.

The Golden Bears have not announced the game yet, but Presbyterian posted it on its website.

The Blue Hose were 2-9 last season, including 1-5 in the Big South Conference. They played two games against Football Bowl Championship teams last season, losing 53-13 at Wake Forest and 58-21 at Clemson.

“Cal will be a great trip for us. Coach (Jeff) Tedford is doing great things out there and it’ll be a fun game and a great experience for our guys,” Presbyterian coach Harold Nichols said on gobluehose.com.

Cal, which will play its home games in San Francisco next season while Memorial Stadium undergoes renovation, still has a Sept. 10 opening on its non-conference schedule.
