Football: Big Game set for 1 p.m. kickoff

The 116th Big Game at Stanford on Saturday will kick off at 1 p.m.

The game will be shown on Fox Sports 1.

Cal (1-10, 0-8 Pac-12) hopes to beat the 10th-ranked Cardinal (8-2, 6-2) for the first time in four seasons.

The Bears are looking to snap losing streaks of nine games overall, 13 to Pac-12 opponents and 15 vs. FBS foes.

Stanford has won 14 straight home games and is 35-3 at Stanford Stadium since the final game of the 2007 season.

    “hopes” and “hoping” are the operative words

  • Bobsac

    There are no hopes & is no hoping until Sonny is gone & there is a new coach. I have never seen a season before that produced nothing, absolutely nothing, no upset, no “moral victory”, no almost, no nothing. Sonny has produce the sports equivalent of the French Army when the roof fell in on them in 1940–poorly trained, no morale, no spirit, unprepared, defeated before the battles start. It is so sad that with the pathetic coaching, this team never had a chance to win a few games & be in most of the other games & have some fun out there.

    Cal is a 32 point dog at the Wynn in Vegas.

    Is it true Cal has only covered one game this year….Arizona?

    Will hope for a miracle while listening on the radio and watching the Aggies against Sac State in the Causeway Classic.

    Go Bears

  • 707 Bear

    17-41 and we covered Washington…..wow…this has been a year to remember.

    More and more I feel like a Cubs fan; happy to be in the stands with no hope of a title.

    Still, Go Bears!

    prediction – Stanford 3 Buhs – Cal 0.75 Buhs. Worst series rout in history.

  • DaveintheHills

    Dreading the trip down to PA, but support the team I will. Go Bears! *Beat Stanford!

    *(don’t embarrass yourself in an attempt to)

  • rotfogel

    The embarrassment that is Sonny Dykes and his ‘band of coaches’ need to be let go for the first move after this game…

    Check that, first move is fire Sandy Barbour, which should have happened months ago, then the new AD (can we hire someone with some degree of athletic knowledge and perhaps a former bear?) needs to clean house.

    When you have a disease, you don’t let it fester, you cut it off at the root and rebuild.

    #5 Woj/moron. You are lame. Quit posting. Nobody cares what you have to say.

  • Bobsac

    Larry–I think Wisdom Cow explained several weeks ago that Woj is not a troll, just an understandably disgusted Cal fan. Reality must be faced. I believe this season after Saturday will be the first time in history that Cal will not have beaten a single team on its level. Winless. This is an unmitigated disaster. This is the Titanic of football. Neville Chamberlain was a disaster as PM for the British during the beginning of World War II. Sonny is a disaster for Cal football now. The Brits needed Winston Churchill. We need the football equivalent.

  • wehofx

    Wow. Hyperbole much? That means…never mind, sn alias.

  • Bobsac

    10 Wehofx– you nailed it. Frustration over the awful season plus 4 beers before dinner led to overdoing it. I should have done a simple “we bad so sad.”

    I saw where our 2014 Football recruiting class was ranked #61. I gave up on our season but had hoped we would get lucky in recruiting.
    There is always next year .. right?

    I attended my first Big Game in 1986, that epic Cal upset that saw the Cal players hoist Joe Kapp on their shoulders and ride him out of the stadium for the last time. I attended most of the rest of ’em through the Snyder/Gilbertson/Holmoe//early Tedford eras until I moved to So Cal a few years back. In every Big Game, no matter how crappy Cal might have been that season, I always went into the stadium with the anticipation that the Bears might might pull off something special and win the game.

    I don’t feel that way this year and would not go to Stanford if someone offered me free tickets and put me up in a suite at the Hyatt in Palo Alto. After all, is there anything more annoying than watching Stanford fans parading and gloating in victory? I am curious about Cal fans who will be making the trip om Saturday. Is it for the camaraderie of visiting with friends and family at the tailgate parties? Is it a sense of duty and and obligation to the school? If you are going, please weigh in on your sense of anticipation for the experience this year.

    No, Steve, I’m going because I’m a Cal football fan. The true fans always go.

    David….if going to just about every home game during the Holmoe era doesn’t make me a true fan, then so be it. I am now a discerning fan who won’t pay inflated ticket prices for bad entertainment. That’s why I was curious about who was going and why.
