Football: No word yet on Big Game kickoff

If you were hoping/expecting to get a kickoff time today for the Nov. 23 Big Game, you’ll have to be patient.

The Pac-12 announced that FOX has exercised its right to conduct a six-day selection for conference football games that day.

The 116th Big Game was one of four games held back for a six-day selection. The other three contests are Oregon at Arizona, Arizona State at UCLA and USC at Colorado.

In a nutshell, the game at Stanford could held in the early afternoon, late afternoon or at night. In other words, we know nothing.

The possibilities for start times and television coverage of the four contests were announced Monday and are listed below in order of selection.

· FOX – 5 p.m. MT/4 p.m. PT

· ESPN (Network TBD) – 1:30 p.m. MT/12:30 p.m. PT

· Pac-12 Networks – 7:30 p.m. MT/PT (local)

· FOX Sports 1 – 2 p.m. MT/1 p.m. PT

Football: Cal @ Ore on 9/28 set for 7:30 kickoff; Dykes to throw out first pitch at A’s tonight

Cal’s Sept. 28 football game at No. 2 Oregon has been set for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff and will be telecast on the Pac-12 Networks, the conference announced.

Be prepared for a game that runs past 11:30 p.m. If we’re lucky.

Meanwhile, first-year Cal coach Sonny Dykes, a former baseball player at Texas Tech, will throw out the opening pitch at Monday night’s A’s game against the Angels.

The Bears (1-2) have a bye this week, giving them additional time to prepare for the high-scoring Ducks (3-0).

Cal has lost four straight to Oregon, including by a 59-17 margin in Berkeley last season.
