(BERKELEY) - Cal's first official Pac-12 football game and its first conference contest of the season at Washington on Saturday, Sept. 24, has been chosen for a national telecast by Fox Sports Net and will kick off at 12:30 p.m. PT, the Pac-12 Conference announced Monday. The game at Husky Stadium in Seattle will be telecast locally on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
Craig Bolerjack (play-by-play) and Joel Klatt (analyst) will have the call in the booth, with Petros Papadakis serving as the sideline reporter.
Washington leads the all-time series between the teams, 48-38-4, and has won three of the last four contests the teams have played after a previous five-game Cal win streak. Washington has also won the last two times the teams have played in Seattle.
Cal (2-0) continues 2011 season with its first home game of the campaign against Presbyterian (1-1) at San Francisco's AT&T Park this Saturday, Sept. 17. Kickoff for the non-televised contest is slated for 2:30 p.m. PT. The two schools have never met.
The remainder of Cal's 2011 home schedule at AT&T Park also includes contests against Pac-12 opponents USC (Thu., Oct. 13), Utah (Sat., Oct. 22), Washington State (Sat., Nov. 5) and Oregon State (Sat., Nov. 12).

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 contests outside of Berkeley in 2011 for the first time since Memorial Stadium opened while the venue undergoes an extensive renovation and retrofit.
