Kickoff - Cal at No. 9 Oregon Thu., Oct. 6 (6:02 p.m. PT)
Cal resumes its 2011 season after a bye last week with an ESPN nationally televised Thursday night road contest against Oregon at Autzen Stadium. The Bears are 3-1 overall and 0-1 in the Pac-12 after a tough loss in their most recent contest at Washington in their conference opener Sept. 24. Cal had started the season with three consecutive victories over Fresno State, Colorado and Presbyterian in non-conference games. Oregon is also 3-1 overall as well as 1-0 in Pac-12 play. The Ducks lost their season-opener in a neutral-site game at Cowboys Stadium against an LSU squad that is now the No. 1 ranked team in the country by AP and No. 3 according to USA Today. Since dropping its opener, Oregon has won three in a row over Nevada, Missouri State and at Arizona in its Pac-12 opener before also having a bye last week.
Cal holds a 39-32-2 lead in the all-time series but Oregon has captured each of the last two meetings. Last season in Berkeley, the Bears nearly upset the No. 1-ranked Ducks before Oregon prevailed, 15-13. Oregon was a 42-3 winner over a No. 6-ranked Cal squad the last time the teams met in Eugene in 2009. Cal had won three in a row (2006-08) and four of the last five dating back to 2004 prior to Oregon's current two-game series win streak, including a 31-24 victory in Eugene in 2007 that is the Bears' only win on the road in the series in the last nine meetings. Cal's 2004 win snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Ducks from 1994-2003.
Detailed information on the Cal-Oregon series is located on page 31.

Key Matchup: Oregon Run Game vs. Cal Run Defense
Oregon heads into the game leading the Pac-12 and ranking sixth nationally in rushing offense with an average of 299.5 yards per contest on the ground. The Ducks feature the nation's leading rusher in LaMichael James (153.25 ypg). Cal's rushing defense has allowed only 78.25 yards per contest, ranking second in the Pac-12 and ninth nationally.

Sustained Success
Cal averaged 8.0 wins per year in the first nine seasons (2002-10) under head coach Jeff Tedford for a record and ranked tied for third among Pac-10 teams in victories during that period. Cal is nearly halfway to its average win total over the past nine seasons in 2011 as the Bears are off to a 3-1 start.

Weeknight Games
Cal's game at Oregon this Thursday is one of three weeknight games the Bears have on their regular-season slate in 2011, equaling the total of three they played during head coach Jeff Tedford's first nine seasons on the job. Cal will play its second consecutive Thursday night game next week when the Bears host USC at San Francisco's AT&T Park on Oct. 13. Cal will close out its regular season at Arizona State on Friday, Nov. 25. Below is how Cal has fared in each of its three previous weeknight outings in the Tedford era, all non-conference contests.

Sept. 11, 2003 - at Utah 31, Cal 24
Sept. 23, 2005 - Cal 41, at New Mexico State 13
Sept. 17, 2010 - at Nevada 52, Cal 31

Bears as the Best, against the Best
The Bears are 15-8 when playing as a top-10 team and 36-21 when ranked in the top 25 of at least one set of rankings since head coach Jeff Tedford took over in 2002. Cal has played 30 nationally ranked teams during the Tedford era and posted a 13-17 record in those contests, with the Bears game at Oregon this Thursday their first against a ranked team in 2011. Cal is 0-3 under Tedford against No. 1 ranked teams, most recently falling 15-13 to Oregon at Memorial Stadium on Nov. 13, 2010. Cal also lost 35-10 to USC at Memorial Stadium in 2005 and 23-17 to the Trojans in 2004 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. In 2009, the Bears recorded back-to-back wins in consecutive weeks over nationally ranked teams for the first time since 1950, defeating No. 18 Arizona (Nov. 14) before winning at No. 14 Stanford (Nov. 21). Cal has dropped three consecutive games against ranked teams since, falling to No. 23 Utah in the 2009 Poinsettia Bowl and last season to No. 6 Stanford, in addition to the loss to the top-ranked Ducks. Cal has dropped eight straight games to top-10 teams since a 34-31 triple-overtime victory against third-ranked USC in Berkeley on Sept. 27, 2003.

National Rankings
Prior to the 2011 campaign, Cal has been ranked among the nation's top 25 teams at one point in each of the last seven seasons and eight times in nine campaigns since 2002. The Bears have yet to be ranked in 2011 but were among teams in the USA Today Poll twice in weeks three and four, and the AP Top 25 in week four. Cal has opened a campaign ranked nationally five times during the first 10 seasons under head coach Jeff Tedford, with the highest preseason ranking coming in 2006 at No. 9 by AP (No. 12 USA Today). The Bears have also been ranked as high as No. 12 by both AP and USA Today to begin both the 2007 and 2009 seasons. In 2004, AP started the Bears at No. 13 (No. 15 USA Today), and Cal opened 2005 ranked No. 19 by AP (No. 20 USA Today).

Tedford Sets Cal's Career Wins Mark
Head coach Jeff Tedford became Cal's all-time leader for victories when he recorded his 75th career victory against Presbyterian at San Francisco's AT&T Park on Sept. 17, 2011. Tedford moved past former leader Andy Smith (74, 1916-25), who had held the record for 86 years. Tedford, who is now 75-43 (.636) in his 10th season at Cal, became the school's all-time leader in games coached during the 2010 season.

Bouncing Back After Losing Conference Opener
Cal has bounced back with a victory in two of the previous three seasons under head coach Jeff Tedford in which it lost its conference opener as they did in 2011 at Washington. Below are results from Cal's first two conference games in each of the three previous seasons they have dropped their conference opener.

2002 - Washington State 48, at Cal 38 (Sept. 28); Cal 34, at Washington 27 (Oct. 5)
2009 - at Oregon 42, Cal 3 (Sept. 26); USC 30, at Cal 3 (Oct. 3)
2010 - at Arizona 10, Cal 9 (Sept. 25); at Cal 35, UCLA 7 (Oct. 9)

Cal Offense Much Improved in 2011
Cal's offense has improved significantly through the team's first four games of 2011. Below is a look at numbers in four key categories over the past two seasons.

Offensive Comparison - 2011 vs. 2010
Category 2011 (Pac-12/NCAA Rank) 2010 (Pac-12/NCAA Rank)
Rushing Offense 161.00 ypg (No. 4/50) 158.92 ypg (No. 6/52) Passing Offense 295.25 ypg (No. 4/22) 175.08 ypg (No. 9/94) Total Offense 456.25 ypg (No. 5/25) 334.0 ypg (No. 7/90) Scoring Offense 39.50 ppg (No. 4/15) 25.83 ppg (No. 6/73)

Allen and Jones Third and Sixth in Pac-12 Receiving
Keenan Allen and Marvin Jones rank third and sixth, respectively, in the Pac-12 in both per-game receptions and receiving yards.
Allen leads the team in receptions (30), receiving yards (498) and yards per catch (16.6 ypc). His per-game numbers of 124.50 yards and 7.5 receptions per contest also rank tied for seventh and 17th nationally.
Allen also has the team's longest catch of the season when he was on the receiving end of a short pass from Zach Maynard at Washington and turned it into the longest pass play in school history and a 90-yard touchdown. Allen finished with career highs of 10 catches and 197 receiving yards (fifth all-time at Cal) in the contest. The versatile Allen also paces the club with an average of 131.5 all-purpose yards per game, ranking eighth in the Pac-12 and 53rd nationally. In addition, he rushed three times for 21 yards, completed a 27-yard pass to Zach Maynard the only time he attempted to throw and also has a punt return for seven yards.
Jones, who has led the team in both receptions and receiving yards each of the past two seasons, is currently second on the club behind Allen with 23 receptions for 375 yards and an average of 16.3 yards per catch. Nationally, Jones is 35th in receiving yards per game (93.75) and tied for 48th in receptions per game (5.75).
Both share the team lead with three touchdown receptions. After Allen's 90-yard school-record reception, Jones has the team's next two longest catches of the year with a 51-yarder against Presbyterian and a 42-yarder vs. Fresno State.

Allen and Jones Nearing Career Milestones
Keenan Allen is 12 receiving yards away from equaling DeSean Jackson as the fastest Cal player to reach 1,000 career receiving yards. Jackson reached 1,000 in the 16th game of his collegiate career, totaling a true-freshman record 601 yards during 11 games in 2005 and then reaching the mark in the fifth game of his sophomore season. The 498 receiving yards Allen has totaled in the first four games of his 2011 sophomore season have already surpassed the 490 he had in 11 games during his 2010 true freshman campaign.
Marvin Jones is closing in on both the 2,000-yard career receiving mark as well as the school's all-time top-10 in both receptions and receiving yards. He is Cal's active career leader in receptions (117), receiving yards (1,799) and receiving touchdowns (13). The 13 touchdown catches are already tied for eighth on the school's all-time list, while the receptions are 19 shy of the top 10 and the receiving yards 248 away from the record book.

Jones and Allen Catch Streaks
Marvin Jones and Keenan Allen both have current streaks going in which they have made at least one reception in a game. Jones has a run of 29 consecutive games over every Cal contest the last three years. Allen's streak covers each of the 15 games he has played in over the past two seasons.

Maynard Impressive
Zach Maynard has been impressive during his first four games as Cal's starting quarterback. Maynard has completed 72-of-138 passes for 1,073 yards, with 10 touchdown throws and three interceptions for a 137.05 passer efficiency rating that would be third on Cal's all-time list. He also has 19 rushes for 44 yards, including a 43-yarder vs. Fresno State, as well as a 27-yard reception from Keenan Allen at Colorado.
In his most recent outing at Washington, Maynard set career highs by completing 23-of-43 passes for 349 yards, including a 90-yard touchdown pass to Allen that was the longest pass play in Cal history.
Maynard has thrown for at least 200 yards, as well as completed 15 passes with at least one for a touchdown, in each of his four starts.

Sofele Next in Line of Successful Cal Tailbacks
Isi Sofele looks to be the next tailback in line to take a shot at the 1,000-yard rushing mark that a Cal player has reached in eight of the last nine campaigns. Sofele has already rushed for a career high 380 yards in his first four games of 2011, with his 95.0 yard per-game average ranking fifth in the Pac-12 and tied for 38th nationally. Sofele has posted four consecutive games of at least 84 yards rushing per contest. The last Cal player to have at least 84 yards rushing in four consecutive was Shane Vereen in the final four contests of 2009 when he had at least 92 in four consecutive contests. Jahvid Best was the last Cal player to have 84 or more rushing yards in more than four straight games when he ran for at least 116 yards for seven consecutive games spanning the final four contests of 2008 and the first three of 2009. Sofele is currently on pace for 1,140 yards rushing in 12 regular-season games. Cal's string of seven straight campaigns in which a running back gained over 1,000 yards rushing ended in 2009 when Vereen's then career-high and team-leading total of 952 yards fell just short, with Best adding 867 despite missing the final four games due to injury. But Vereen started a new streak in 2010 with a career-high total of 1,167 yards on the ground.

Kendricks Surges Back into Team Lead in Tackles
Mychal Kendricks equaled a career-high with 15 tackles in his most recent outing at Washington to move back into the team lead with 35 tackles. He also paces the squad with 4.0 tackles for loss (-19 yards) and is one of three players tied for the team lead with one fumble recovery, which he also picked up at Washington. Kendricks is among the Pac-12 and national leaders in tackles (8.75 tpg, T-4th Pac-12, T-52nd NCAA) and tackles for loss (1.00 tflpg, T-6th Pac-12, T-95th NCAA). He has played in all 42 games possible and made 21 starts during his career at Cal. Kendricks is the Bears' active career leader in tackles (187), tackles for loss (26.0), sacks (11.5) and fumble recoveries (6), while tying for team's active career lead in blocked kicks (1). The national honors candidate was Cal's most decorated player in the 2011 preseason and is on watch lists for the Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Butkus Award, College Football Performance Awards Linebacker Trophy, Lott IMPACT Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award.

Holt Remains Steady
D.J. Holt is second on the team with his 29 tackles and 10th in the Pac-12 with a per-game average of 7.25. He is six tackles behind team leader Mychal Kendricks and looking to lead the squad in tackles for the first time after ranking second with 85 in 2010 behind leader Mike Mohamed.
Holt has three career forced fumbles that are the most by any active Cal player, while his 165 career tackles are second, his two fumble recoveries tied for second, his 12.0 tackles for loss third and his seven pass breakups tied for fifth. He has played in 41 consecutive games after not playing in the first contest of his 2007 redshirt freshman season. He has started all 16 games possible over the last two campaigns and 24 overall.

Anger Back to Near 2010 Record-Setting Numbers
Bryan Anger, who broke a 23-year-old single-season Cal record with a 45.6 yard punting average in 2010, is near the record-setting numbers he posted a year ago despite a rare off week in the season-opener vs. Fresno State in which he averaged only 35.5 yards per punt on six attempts. In nine attempts since, he has averaged 50.1 yards per punt, with six of those nine punts going for 50 yards or more including at least one in each of the past three contests. Anger has twice selected been selected as an honorable mention Punter Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards, picking up the honor for his outings at Colorado when he averaged 51.0 yards per punt on four attempts to mark the sixth time in his illustrious career that he has averaged 50.0 or more yards in a game, and then again at Washington when he averaged 49.7 yards on three punts. He also averaged 49.0 yards per punt on only two attempts vs. Presbyterian. Anger has moved up 44 spots from where he was after the season opener into the No. 19 position nationally with a 44.3 yard per punt average (No. 4 Pac-12).

Tavecchio Campbell Semifinalist/NFF Scholar-Athlete Award Candidate
The National Football Foundation (NFF) and College Football Hall of Fame announced on Sept. 29 that Giorgio Tavecchio is a semifinalist for the prestigious William V. Campbell Trophy often referred to as the "Academic Heisman" and a candidate for the 2011 NFF National Scholar-Athlete Awards. Tavecchio's selection continues Cal's strong tradition with the NFF honors in recent years. In 2008, Alex Mack won the Campbell Trophy (named the Draddy Trophy at the time). Mike Mohamed was one of 16 Campbell Trophy finalists in 2010. Both were recipients of an NFF National Scholar-Athlete Award.
Tavecchio has an interesting Cal football story, having joined the Bears as a walk-on three days before the 2008 season-opener against Michigan State and then handling the team's kickoff duties against the Spartans in his first collegiate contest. He has played a primary role in the team's kicking ever since and been a full-time starter each of the past two campaigns.
On the field, Tavecchio has played in 37 games at Cal over the past three-plus seasons and is the Golden Bears' active career leader with 192 points, making 33-of-46 (71.7%) field goal attempts and 93-of-98 (94.9%) extra-point tries. Through the first four games of his 2011 senior season Tavecchio is only 18 points shy of reaching Cal's all-time top-10 list in scoring. He has also kicked off 198 times for 11,869 kickoff yards and an average of 59.9 yards per kickoff with 12 touchbacks, leading all active Cal players in each category. Tavecchio made the first 65 extra-point tries of his career before the streak was snapped on his second PAT attempt in the seventh game of his junior year against Arizona State. Tavecchio has made all five of his field goal attempts in 2011 and leads Cal in scoring with 32 points, following a 2010 junior campaign in which he ranked second on the team in scoring with 70 points. A year ago he was also fifth in the Pac-10 in both scoring among kickers (5.8 ppg) and PAT percentage (37-39, 94.9%), as well as sixth in field goal percentage (11-16, 68.8%) and field goals (0.92 fgpg).
In the classroom, Tavecchio has a 3.711 cumulative GPA and is on track to graduate with a bachelor's degree in Political Economy in May of 2012. He has earned second-team Pac-10 All-Academic honors each of the last two seasons in 2009 and `10.
In terms of community service Tavecchio has been off the charts, with his activities including ...
• Taking part in the SAGE mentorship program which provides Cal students as mentors for elementary school children in local public schools
• Working with high school kickers in his hometown area
• Volunteering at the St. Mary's Center working in the soup kitchen
• Sponsoring a poor child in Honduras through Compassion International
• Participation with Athletes in Action, including going on "PB&J giveaways" where the group makes PB&J sandwiches and gives them away to homeless in the Berkeley area
• Taking part in a COPWATCH (community-based police accountability) decal class in which homeless individuals were educated about their rights and Berkeley civic law
• Tutoring Italian student-athletes at Cal
• Volunteering at a local Catholic church to help with confirmation

Big Plays Are Back
The big play has returned to the Cal offense in 2011. The Bears have had 27 plays (21 passing, six rushing) from the line of scrimmage that have covered 20 or more yards in 2011, compared to only 39 in 12 regular season games all of last year. With an average of 6.8 plays per game covering 20 or more yards in its first four contests of 2011, Cal is also ahead of the pace of a stellar big-play season in 2009 when the Golden Bears had 72 plays that covered at least 20 yards for an average of 5.5 times per game. Zach Maynard has been involved in a team-high 20 of the 27 plays this season, while other big-play playmakers on offense have included Keenan Allen (9), Marvin Jones (7), Isi Sofele (6), Allan Bridgford (2), Anthony Miller (2) and Michael Calvin (2). Below is a detailed look at the 27 plays from the line of scrimmage that have gone for at least 20 yards in 2011.

Big Plays Are Back ... On Defense, Too
For the second consecutive season, Cal is among the conference and national leaders in sacks. Through the first four games of 2011, the Bears rank third in the Pac-12 and ninth nationally in sacks per game (3.25). A year ago, Cal led the Pac-10 in sacks per game, while ranking No. 13 nationally (2.83). Cal's tackles for loss numbers are way up in 2011 as the Bears rank second in the Pac-12 and 16th nationally (7.75). Last year, Cal was sixth in the Pac-10 and 42nd nationally (6.33).

Spreading Out The Sacks
Despite its high team sack numbers, Cecil Whiteside is the only Cal player ranking among the Pac-12 (7th) and national (T-57th) leaders with his average of .67 sacks per game. Whiteside's 2.0 total sacks also lead a group of 12 players that have contributed at least a half sack that includes Trevor Guyton (1.5), Ernest Owusu (1.5), Sean Cattouse (1.0), Deandre Coleman (1.0), Ryan Davis (1.0), Josh Hill (1.0), Mychal Kendricks (1.0), Kendrick Payne (1.0), David Wilkerson (1.0), Mustafa Jalil (0.5) and C.J. Moncrease (0.5).

Defense Makes Marks in Record Book
Cal's defense put up a performance for the record books against Presbyterian as the Bears allowed only 48 total yards while Presbyterian's 12 points were scored on returns after a blocked punt and an interception. The 48 yards allowed were the fifth-fewest in school history, while Presbyterian's three first downs were the third-fewest all-time by a Cal opponent and the least since the "Bear Minimum" defense held San Jose State to a single first down on Oct. 5, 1968.

Defense Near the Top of Pac-12 Stats Again
The Bears rank second in the Pac-12 in both rushing defense (78.25 ypg, 9th NCAA) and total defense (314.25, 27th NCAA).

Veteran Offensive Line Now at 105 Combined Starts
The Bears' 2011 offensive line features several players with a significant amount of experience as the five members of the group that have started each of the team's first four games have combined to make 105 collegiate starts in Mitchell Schwartz (42), Justin Cheadle (26), Brian Schwenke (16), Matt Summers-Gavin (16) and Dominic Galas (5).

On The Road
Cal heads into its game at Oregon with an even 1-1 record in true road games in 2011. The Bears won their road opener in thrilling fashion, with a 36-33 overtime victory at Colorado that extended its road win streak to two straight after a triumph at Washington State in the final road contest of 2010. The modest streak was snapped when Cal fell, 31-23, at Washington on Sept. 24.
Following its trip to Oregon, Cal will play four of its next five games at its 2011 home San Francisco's AT&T Park, with the team's only road contest during the period at UCLA (Oct. 29). After the stretch, Cal will finish its regular season with road trips to Stanford (Nov. 19) and Arizona State (Nov. 25).
The Bears had distinctly different levels of success on the road in 2009 and 2010. Last season, Cal lost each of its first four road games (Nevada, Arizona, USC, Oregon State) before avoiding a winless season on the road with the win at Washington State. Two seasons ago in 2009, the Bears posted a 4-2 record in true road games to register its best mark in those contests since 2004. Cal won at Minnesota, UCLA, Arizona State and Stanford, with the two losses coming at Oregon and Washington. Prior to 2009, Cal hadn't posted a winning road record since 2005, when the Bears were 3-2 in true road games. Cal's best record in true road contests under head coach Jeff Tedford was a 5-1 mark in 2004.

Opponents Making Mistakes against Bears
Cal's opponents have been penalized more times than any other Pac-12 team's opponents as the Bears lead the conference in opponent penalties, with Cal's competitors being flagged 36 times for 332 yards (83.0 ypg).

Score 30 or More Points, Usually Win
Cal is 58-5 all-time when putting 30 points or more on the scoreboard under head coach Jeff Tedford, adding to the win total by scoring more than 30 points in each of its three victories in 2011 over Fresno State (36), Colorado (36) and Presbyterian (63). The Bears had won 30 consecutive games when they scored at least 30 points prior to a 52-31 loss at Nevada on Sept. 17, 2010. When the Bears don't score at least 30 points, their record under Tedford is 17-38. As would be expected, their record become even better when scoring 40 or more points (38-2), 50 or more (12-0), and 60 or more (3-0).

On the Tube
Cal has played on television in 58 of its last 60 games, with the team's only two non-televised games during the span home contests vs. Washington State (Oct. 24, 2009) and Presbyterian (Sept. 17, 2011). A total of 98 games have been televised in the first nine-plus seasons under head coach Jeff Tedford through the team's most recent contest at Washington.

Turnover Margin a Key
The turnover battle has been emphasized since head coach Jeff Tedford's arrival in 2002 and rightly so. The Bears are 42-7 when committing fewer turnovers than opponents during the Tedford era, compared to 17-10 when tied and 16-26 when opponents win the battle. In conference games, Cal is 25-5 with a positive margin in turnovers, 10-7 when the turnover table is tied and 9-22 with a deficit. However, the numbers in 2011 have not necessarily followed the trend. Cal won the turnover battle only once (against Presbyterian) in its three victories. The Bears did win the turnover battle at Washington but lost the game to the Huskies.

Cal After A Bye
Cal is 9-6 in 15 regular-season games coming off a bye under head coach Jeff Tedford.

Bowling and Winning Bears
Cal's school-record bowl game streak of seven consecutive seasons from 2003-09 finally came to an end in 2010 when the Bears finished 5-7, which also ended the team's school-record-tying string of eight straight winning campaigns. Cal posted a 5-2 (.714) record during its seven consecutive bowl appearances that also included a school-record four straight bowl wins from 2005-08. The Bears were 67-35 (.657) overall during their eight winning seasons in a row.

Lots of New Faces
A total of 25 Cal players have made their first appearances in a Cal uniform in 2011. The list includes Chris Adcock (Fr., OL), Ted Agu (Fr., LB), David Aknin (Jr., FB), C.J. Anderson (Jr., TB), Brendan Bigelow (Fr., TB), Jackson Bouza (So., WR), Allan Bridgford (So., QB), Michael Coley (Fr., DB), Kameron Jackson (Fr., DB), Mustafa Jalil (Fr., DL), Keni Kaufusi (So., DL), Gabe King (Fr., DL), Kameron Krebs (Jr., LB), Adrian Lee (Fr., DB), Mike Manuel (Jr., TB), Zach Maynard (Jr., QB), Chris McCain (Fr., LB), Stefan McClure (Fr., DB), Bryce McGovern (Fr., WR), Viliami Moala (Fr., DL), Richard Rodgers (Fr., TE), Brennan Scarlett (Fr., LB), Avery Sebastian (Fr., DB), Bill Tyndall (So., OL) and Cecil Whiteside (Fr., LB).

• Other players involved in forcing turnovers include Sean Cattouse (interception) and D.J. Campbell (fumble recovery).
Trevor Guyton has 4.0 tackles for loss.

Rodgers and Bishop Super Bowl Champs; Rodgers MVP
Former Cal football players Aaron Rodgers and Desmond Bishop are reigning Super Bowl champions after the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25, at Cowboys Stadium in Super Bowl XLV. Rodgers was the first former Cal player to be named the game's MVP, and is also the first of the record four former Cal quarterbacks to start the game to be victorious.
"I watched the game with great pride and admiration for what Aaron and Desmond accomplished," head coach Jeff Tedford said. "They are two class individuals who did a lot for Cal and have continued their growth as leaders and major contributors to the World Champions!"
The appearance of Rodgers and Bishop marked the 10th consecutive season Cal has had at least one player on a Super Bowl roster.

Four 2011 Selections Add To Cal's Strong NFL Draft History
Four former Cal players were selected during the 2011 NFL Draft. Cameron Jordan was the first Bear picked when he was taken in the first round by the New Orleans Saints with the No. 24 overall pick. Shane Vereen and Chris Conte were selected on the draft's second day, with Vereen going to the New England Patriots in the second round (No. 56 overall) and Conte being chosen in the third round by the Chicago Bears (No. 93 overall). Mike Mohamed rounded out Cal's selections when he was picked up on the final day of the draft by the Denver Broncos in the sixth round (No. 189 overall).
"I'm happy for all these guys," head coach Jeff Tedford said. "All of them are really, really happy. It's gratifying to me for the reason that they entrusted their careers to come to Cal to see their dreams come true."
Cal Draft Notes: Cal's four players selected in 2011 were the most Bears taken in an NFL Draft since six were picked in 2008 ... Cal had three players in the top 100 to rank tied for sixth among schools nationally ... Cal has had 36 NFL Draft selections in the last 10 drafts ... Jordan was Cal's 26th first-round pick and the eighth in the last 10 drafts ... Jordan became the second consecutive defensive lineman chosen from Cal in the first round in as many years, joining the No. 10 overall selection of Tyson Alualu by Jacksonville in 2010 and making the Cal only the second team in the Pac-12 to have ever had defensive linemen selected in the first round in back-to-back drafts (USC is the other) ... Cal has had four first-round draft picks in the last three drafts, with at least one in all three.

Academic Prowess Continues
Cal has posted 94 Pac-10 All-Academic honors from 2002-10 under head coach Jeff Tedford, second-most in the conference during that span.

Cal's second-team selections included Alex Lagemann, Ernest Owusu, Giorgio Tavecchio and John Tyndall. Justin Cheadle, Richard Fisher, Chris Guarnero, Mitchell Schwartz, Matt Summers-Gavin and Beau Sweeney were selected honorable mention.
In 2008, Alex Mack earned the Draddy Trophy (later renamed the Campbell Trophy) honoring college football's top scholar-athlete, while Mohamed was a finalist for the honor often referred to as the "academic Heisman" in 2010 after earlier being given an NFF Scholar-Athlete Award.

Defending Pac-12 champion Oregon was the choice to win the 2011 Pac-12 Conference football title. The Ducks were also listed in the top spot in the North Division by 29 of the 42 voters participating in the poll, collecting 239 points. USC was picked to win the South Division with 230 points, edging out Arizona State, which tallied 207 points. Arizona State collected 13 first-place votes in the division race, with three of the pollsters predicting a Pac-12 Championship crown for the Sun Devils.

Cal Makes AT&T Park Home in 2011; Back to Berkeley in 2012
After playing the last 88 seasons and every home game at Memorial Stadium since the facility opened for the 1923 Big Game, Cal will host its home games outside of Berkeley for the first time in 2011 while Memorial Stadium undergoes an extensive renovation and retrofit.
Cal's 2011 home schedule at San Francisco's AT&T Park has remaining visits from Pac-12 rival USC on Thursday, Oct. 13 (6 p.m. PT) and conference newcomer Utah on Saturday, Oct. 22. The game against USC will be a live national telecast on ESPN 3D. The Bears will also host Pac-12 foes Washington State (Saturday, Nov. 5) and Oregon State (Saturday, Nov. 12). Starting times for all games other than USC will be announced at later dates when the information becomes available, as will television broadcast information.

Cal in Pac-12 North in 2011; New Conference Media Rights Deal
The Pac-12 has taken major steps to transform itself into a dynamic new enterprise by forming two football divisions that maintain traditional rivalries, creating the first-ever Pac-12 Championship Game, establishing schedule models for all other sports and agreeing to move to an equal revenue sharing plan for the first time in conference history on Oct. 21, 2010. The Chancellors and Presidents of the 12 member institutions voted to create a new North-South division structure that allows the conference to continue to play its traditional rivalry games, including the long-standing annual games among the California schools, delivers a football championship game to the home field of the top team in the regular-season conference standings and is easy for fans to follow. The new divisions will feature California, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Washington and Washington State in the North; and Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, UCLA, USC, and Utah in the South. Each school will play five divisional games and four cross-divisional games each year. To preserve all of the historic rivalries, including those among the California schools, the new scheduling format locks in annual inter-divisional games between Northern and Southern California teams that date back to the 1930s.
On May 4, 2011, the Pac-12 announced it is teaming up with ESPN and FOX Sports Media Group on a landmark agreement for a broadcast and national cable television package that extends and expands long-time partnerships with both companies. At the same time, Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott announced the creation of a new media company, Pac-12 Media Enterprises, which will own the Pac-12 Network, the Pac-12 Digital Network, and Pac-12 Properties. This new company will control and distribute on its platforms and on all devices, the Pac-12 games not licensed to ESPN and FOX Sports, and will hold other media and event rights. This entity will be wholly owned and controlled by the Pac-12 Conference and will exist side-by-side with the newly announced ESPN and FOX Sports arrangements.
Although terms of the ESPN and Fox Sports agreements were not disclosed, Scott called it a "landmark deal" on several fronts. He pointed out that the Pac-12's member institutions would, for the first time ever, share equally in the revenue from the new arrangement, and that the equal revenue distribution would start immediately when the deal goes into effect in 2012.

California Memorial Stadium Renovation
Since it opened in the fall of 1923, California Memorial Stadium has generated scores of unforgettable memories for generations of Golden Bears. From the Wonder Teams of the 1920s to the Pappy Waldorf years mid-century to the current success attained under head coach Jeff Tedford, the venerable facility has treated fans of all ages to many of the greatest games in the history of Cal football. Work has been underway since June 2010 to renovate the historic building, bringing it up to modern standards and creating a facility that will significantly reduce seismic risk and create a more enjoyable environment for the hundreds of thousands of fans who attend games every year - all while maintaining the architecture and character of the celebrated structure. Construction on the $321 million project is expected to be completed in time for the 2012 season opener.
By Feb. 1, the old press box had been removed, as had all of the west-side seating and concrete below the mezzanine level. Late April signaled the end of the demolition phase and beginning of construction, with only the historic facade remaining on the west side of the facility. Now, four tower cranes rise from what was the field, and the stadium is beginning to take shape from the bottom up. The Golden Bears are scheduled to return to their on-campus facility in September 2012 after playing their home games at AT&T Park this season. Fans can follow daily progress through a webcam stationed high above the eastern rim at CalBears.com/stadiumcam or by visiting Vista Point on Stadium Rim Way also on the east side, and open to the public during regular construction hours.
When Memorial Stadium reopens, the facility will have a capacity of approximately 63,000 and feature modernized gameday facilities and services, upgraded access for the disabled and improved seismic safety.
Cal defeated Stanford, 9-0, in the first game played in Memorial Stadium on Nov. 24, 1923. The Bears compiled a 317-213-16 (.596) in 88 seasons in the venue from 1923-2010. The last game played in the old configuration of Memorial Stadium was a 16-13 loss to Washington on Nov. 27, 2010.

Student-Athlete High Performance Center
Cal's Student-Athlete High Performance Center, which will house football and 12 other sports on a daily basis, will open this fall after more than two years of construction. The month of September was used to get the Olympic wing ready for occupancy, such as bringing in furniture, establishing phone service, and setting up computers and other technology requirements. Move-ins will begin in early October and be conducted in phases, starting with all sports and administrative units that will be housed in the Olympic wing.
Football, due to the size of its operation, will move its temporary headquarters just east of Memorial Stadium in December or January contingent upon its bowl game schedule and full building completion. Final phase construction will continue throughout many portions of the building, much of it in the football offices and the central High Performance Zone, throughout most of the fall.
The SAHPC is a revolutionary student-athlete training, coaching, and applied sports science and sports medicine center that embodies the High Performance Initiative (see CalHighPerformance.com), Cal's innovative performance philosophy designed to build competitive advantage, maximize efficiency and enhance the student-athlete experience.
A 142,000 square-foot facility, the SAHPC is a state-of-the-art complex with year-round access for over 450 student-athletes.

Active Players in Cal Record Book
The following active players are listed in the Cal record book. For career categories, the all-time leader and anybody that an active player could reasonably pass during the game at Oregon on Oct. 6, 2011, are also listed. Look for Keenan Allen (career 100-yard receiving games), Sean Cattouse (career interceptions), Marvin Jones (career receptions, career receiving yards) and Giorgio Tavecchio (career points scored) to soon find their place in Cal's all-time record book. A full list of records can be found on pages 169-198 of the 2011 Cal football information guide online at CalBears.com.
