(BERKELEY) - Senior wide receiver Marvin Jones is scheduled to be a guest on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area's Chronicle Live telecast on Monday, Nov. 14. The one-hour live show begins at 7:00 p.m. PST and will be repeated at 11:00 p.m. PST. Check the local television listings in your area. Jones will be interviewed by show host Greg Papa.
Jones is Cal's active career leader in receptions (140), receiving yards (2,076) and receiving touchdowns (13). The receptions and touchdown catches are eighth on the school's all-time list, while the receiving yards rank 10th. He also has six career 100-yard receiving games to rank tied for sixth. In addition, Jones has a current streak of 35 straight contests in which he has a reception, every Cal game over the last three seasons (2009-11).
After leading the team in both receptions and receiving yards in both 2009 and `10, Jones is having another big campaign in 2011 with 46 receptions, 652 receiving yards and three touchdown catches. All three totals are second on the team behind All-American candidate and Biletnikoff Award semifinalist Keenan Allen, who is chasing single-season school records in both receptions and receiving yards. Jones is on pace to surpass the career highs of 50 receptions and 756 receiving yards he posted as a 2010 junior, with projected 13-game totals in 2011 of 60 catches and 848 receiving yards. Jones' average of 14.2 yards per catch leads the team's regular receivers. In addition, he paces the team by averaging 7.0 yards per punt return with 84 yards on 12 punt returns, including a career-long 37-yarder against USC.
ESPN will telecast Jones and his Cal teammates when they take on Stanford in the 114th Big Game to be played at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 19. The contest is scheduled to kick off at 7:15 p.m. PST.
Cal has won seven of the last nine meetings between the teams but Stanford holds an all-time 56-46-1 edge in a rivalry that began in 1892 and is now the 10th longest in major college football.
Cal (6-4, 3-4 Pac-12) has won two in a row and three out of four overall to become bowl eligible for the eighth time in the last nine seasons. Stanford (9-1, 7-1 Pac-12) suffered its first defeat of the season and had a 17-game win streak that was the longest in the nation snapped with a 53-30 home loss to Oregon on Saturday.
The commercial radio broadcast of all Cal football games can also be heard on the IMG College Sports Radio Network, with KGO 810 AM in San Francisco serving as the flagship station. The KGO broadcast is also available live online at CalBears.com, while KALX 90.7 FM offers fans the student radio broadcast.
After playing Stanford in the Big Game, Cal will close out its 2011 regular season with another ESPN telecast at Arizona State on Friday, Nov. 25 (8:15 p.m. MST/7:15 p.m. PST).
Cal hosted its 2011 home contests at San Francisco's AT&T Park but is scheduled to return to a renovated Memorial Stadium to play its 2012 home schedule.
