BERKELEY - The California Homecoming football game on Oct. 13 against Oregon State will kickoff at 4 p.m. and will be televised nationally by Versus, the Pacific-10 Conference announced on Monday. This raises the number of Cal televised games to 10, with more selections possible.

Following its crucial road victory over Oregon on Saturday, the Golden Bears climbed to No. 3 in the country, Cal's highest ranking since the 1952 season.
Remaining games that are already scheduled to be televised are Oregon State (10/13, Versus, 4 p.m.), Arizona State (10/27, FSN, 7 p.m.), Washington State (11/3, FSN, 7 p.m.), USC (Nov. 10, ABC/ESPN/ESPN2, 5 p.m.) and Stanford (12/1, Versus, 4 p.m.). Television networks make their selections for remaining games 12 or six days prior to the game.
In the first five years of head coach Jeff Tedford's tenure, 47 Cal football games have been televised; in the five years prior to that, just 30 Cal games were televised. National television broadcasts have more than doubled in that time. The Colorado State game marked Cal's first game on CSTV while the Arizona game was Cal's debut on Versus.
