BERKELEY - The University of California and Rutgers University have reached agreement to play their postponed football game on Friday, Nov. 23, at 1 p.m. EST (10 a.m. PST) at Rutgers Stadium, the two schools announced jointly today.
The game was originally scheduled for this Saturday, Sept. 15, but was postponed due to the terrorist attacks on the East Coast this past week.
"The tragic events of this week have dictated that we play this game during the Thanksgiving weekend," said Cal athletic director Steve Gladstone. "We felt strongly that our student-athletes deserve the opportunity to play their full schedule."
"We are very pleased that we were able to find a date that accommodates both institutions," said Rutgers AD Robert E. Mulcahy III. "I want to thank California for their sensitivity in this process. The California officials have been extremely cooperative, particularly in this trying time."
All tickets for the originally scheduled Cal-Rutgers game will be honored on Nov. 23. Cal fans who cannot attend the rescheduled game can obtain a full refund by calling the California ticket office at 1-800-GO BEARS.
