BERKELEY - With a 7-5 overall record, including last Friday's 47-38 shootout victory at Arizona State to give Cal three wins in its past four games, the Golden Bears have become a hot commodity among the Pac-12's bowl representatives as they prepare for their eighth postseason invitation in the last nine years.
All Golden Bear football season-ticket holders and Bear Backers at the $100 donor level and above (gifts received 7/1/10 - 6/30/11) have the opportunity to reserve their seats for Cal's upcoming bowl game ahead of sales to the general public through a special website: CalBears.com/bowl. Although specific bowl-game destinations will most likely not be made until Sunday, Dec. 4, Cal remains in the hunt for six different postseason contests with conference tie-ins:
Valero Alamo Bowl
Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl
Hyundai Sun Bowl
MAACO Las Vegas Bowl
Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl
Gildan New Mexico Bowl
All qualified donors and 2011 Cal football season-ticket holders have been mailed a flyer that provides all necessary details, including PIN numbers. CalBears.com/bowl will detail how many tickets you may request for the bowl games in which the Bears may be playing. Special ticket priority is assigned to all donors at the $2,100 and above giving level.
Fans can log onto CalBears.com/bowl beginning at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, Nov. 29 to reserve tickets. All bowl ticket requests must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Dec. 6 to receive priority.
