BERKELEY - California will open the 2010 season at home against UC Davis on Saturday, Sept. 4, and play a total of seven home games at Memorial Stadium in the football schedule announced Monday by the Pac-10 Conference.
Following the season-opener at home against the Aggies, the Bears will also host Colorado (Sept. 11), UCLA (Oct. 9), Arizona State (Oct. 23), Oregon (Nov. 13), Washington (Nov. 27) and Stanford (Dec. 4) in the Big Game.
The Bears will play their five road games at Nevada (Sept. 18), Arizona (Oct. 2), USC (Oct. 16), Oregon State (Oct. 30) and Washington State (Nov. 20).
Bye dates are scheduled for Sept. 25 and Nov. 6 and were created when contests vs. Washington and Washington State were moved from their original dates. The previously published schedule had the Bears playing 11 consecutive weeks before a three-week gap prior to the Dec. 4 Big Game.
Game times and television broadcast arrangements for the 2010 schedule will be announced at a later date.
Cal's 2010 slate features seven games against teams that played in a bowl this past year - Arizona (Holiday), Nevada (Hawaii), Oregon (Rose), Oregon State (Las Vegas), Stanford (Sun), UCLA (EagleBank) and USC (Emerald).
The Bears will play five of their nine Pac-10 games in 2010 at home, where they are 11-2 the past two seasons. Since the Pac-10 went to a full nine-game conference slate in 2006, Cal is a combined 13-5 in league contests when it plays five Pac-10 home games (2006, '08), including a conference co-championship in '06. By comparison, the Bears are 9-9 in Pac-10 games during the two seasons (2007, '09) they played one more road game in conference play.
