Football: Big Game set for Nov. 23 at Stanford

The Big Game is back where it’s supposed to be — in late November.

Click here for my story.

The 2013 Pac-12 Conference football schedule was announced Thursday, and Cal will visit Stanford on Nov. 23.

The Bears get a Sept. 21 bye before the start of a nine-game conference run. They play Oct. 28 at Oregon to open their Pac-12 schedule.

Cal plays only Saturday games in 2013 and skips Arizona and Utah. Game times will be announced at a later date.

    Wow, Sonny couldn’t ask for better than three straight home games to start the season + a bye before facing Oregon.

    At Colorado late in the year could be ugly, the elevation tough on tired bodies and the weather could be brutal.

    I love the way this sets up, except to close with 2 on the road. If you like Big Game at the end, and i do, this is as good as you could arrange this, but no matter what, it’s brutal, and winning 9 next year will be a miracle.

    yeah, rough way to start. Sonny D, you ain’t in Ruston, La, no mo’.

    Juancho, how do you think the coming official visit weekend is shaping up?

    From the hype on twitter it sounds like it could be – not great – but very good. As in we might crack the top 20.

    Go Bears!

    Man that schedule is tough.
