Cal (7-5, 4-5 Pac-12) will play Texas (7-5, 4-5 Big 12) in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego on Wednesday, Dec. 28 (5 p.m. PST). The contest will be nationally televised on ESPN and ESPN3.com.
Cal is bowl eligible for the ninth time in the last 10 seasons in 2011 and is playing in a bowl game for the eighth time in the last nine campaigns. The Bears are also assured of a winning record for the ninth time in the last 10 campaigns. Cal finished fourth in the highly competitive North division of the Pac-12 Conference and was selected for a bowl prior to any of the teams from the conference's South division.
Cal finished its 2011 regular-season schedule by winning three of its final four games, with the only loss coming narrowly on the road at the hands of a Stanford team that finished the regular season at No. 4 in the BCS Standings, as well as the AP Top 25 and USA Today Poll.
Texas lost three of its final four but managed to finish the regular season at No. 24 in the BCS Standings.
