Beginning at 1:30 p.m., Spieker Plaza in front of Haas Pavilion will host food trucks and a beer garden.

Cal students can buy specially priced $4 tickets, and the first 500 students will be given free headbands.

Also, Peet’s Coffee and Tea and the San Francisco Soup Company will set up inside Gate 5 with free items for fans.

The game also is designated as Kids Day, with various activities available in front of Haas Pavilion.
