BERKELEY - California has moved up to No. 6 in both the Associated Press Top 25 and USA Today rankings released Sunday. The No. 6 spot is the highest the Golden Bears have ever been ranked as of Sept. 20 and the highest overall since the club was No. 2 in both polls heading into a home game vs. Oregon State on Oct. 13, 2007. Cal has been ranked in the Top 10 at some point in five of the last six seasons (2004-07, '09).

The top three teams (Florida, Texas, Alabama) are the same in both polls. Mississippi and Penn State flip-flop the fourth and fifth spots with Mississippi fourth among AP voters and Penn State earning the fourth-place spot from USA Today. The Bears are followed by No. 7 LSU and No. 8 Boise State in both polls. Miami (FL) and Oklahoma are No. 9 and No. 10 in the AP Top 25, while Oklahoma and USC are listed at No. 9 and No. 10 by USA Today.

Cal (3-0) will play its Pac-10 opener at Oregon (2-1) this Saturday, Sept. 26 (12:30 p.m.), before returning to Memorial Stadium for a showdown with seven-time defending champion and No. 10/12 USC (2-1) on Saturday, Oct. 3 (5 p.m.). Both games will be televised nationally by ABC.
