Berkeley - California head football coach Jeff Tedford has added a new entry to "Tedford Talk," his official online blog at www.CalBears.com. The Golden Bear coach addresses the final game for the seniors at Memorial Stadium, among other items, as the Bears take on the Washington Huskies on Saturday.
"As we prepare for our final game of the season, this is a good time for us to remember our seniors who have given so much of their time and effort to the program during their careers at Cal," said Tedford. "We certainly hope that our fans come out and show their support and appreciation for their hard work and dedication in their last appearance in Memorial Stadium."

California concludes the 2008 regular season when the Golden Bears host Washington at 12 noon Saturday in Memorial Stadium. The game will be televised by Fox Sports Net and can be seen locally on CSN Bay Area.
Cal will be looking to finish the campaign with an unblemished 7-0 record in Berkeley. The Bears have outscored their opponents 208-104 at home this year, and a win over the Huskies would mark the third time under Jeff Tedford that the Bears finish a season undefeated in Memorial Stadium (2004, 2006).
Under Tedford, Cal is 5-1 vs. Washington. The Bears snapped a 19-game losing streak to the Huskies in Tedford's first season in 2002, winning 34-27 in Seattle, and will be looking for their third straight victory at home in the series for the first time since taking six in a row in Berkeley from 1945-55.
At 7-4 overall, Cal has already won at least seven games for the seventh straight year - a first in the history of the program. With a win, Tedford will tie legendary Bear coaches Andy Smith (1916-25) and Pappy Waldorf (1947-56) for most career eight-victory seasons with five. Tedford's teams previously won 10 games in 2004 and `06 and eight games in 2003 and `05.
