    Cal will kick off its 2011 season against Fresno State in the TicketCity Battle by the Bay at San Francisco's Candlestick Park this Saturday, Sept. 3. Kickoff is slated for 4:00 p.m. PT.

    Single-game tickets for the contest are on sale now and can be purchased online at, or by calling the Cal Athletic Ticket Office at (800) GO BEARS. The neutral-site season opener for both teams is not part of the 2011 Cal football season-ticket package.

    Tickets are also on sale for Cal's five home games this season at San Francisco's AT&T Park. Cal will host Pac-12 opponents USC (Thu., Oct. 13), Utah (Sat., Oct. 22), Washington State (Sat., Nov. 5) and Oregon State (Sat., Nov. 12) at the venue after playing a non-conference contest against Presbyterian in its home opener on Sat., Sept. 17.

    After playing the last 88 seasons and every home game at Memorial Stadium since the facility opened for the 1923 Big Game, Cal will host its home games outside of Berkeley in 2011 for the first time since Memorial Stadium opened while the venue undergoes an extensive renovation and retrofit.
