The University of California at Berkeley first began playing football in 1886. The Golden Bears would see great success in the 1920's and 1930's when they would win numerous Pacific Coast Conference titles and 2 national championships. After more success in the '40s and '50s under coach Pappy Waldorf, the school's football program would slip into obscurity until the 1990's, and even more so under Tedford's leadership. Some of the great players to wear the blue and gold include Steve Bartkowski, Tony Gonzalez, and Todd Steussie. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for California Golden Bears football tickets.

2017 Cal Golden Bears Season Preview
The California Golden Bears have been making great strides as a team over the past couple of years. In 2015 the Golden Bears were able to almost double their wins from the previous year and were invited to their first bowl game since 2011 where they won against Air Force, 55-36. The quarterback position for 2016 has been taken up by graduate transfer, Davis Webb and is expected to be a good fit for California’s offense that includes four starters returning. On defense, the Bears will have five starters coming back for the 2016 season. Defensive coordinator, Art Kaufman has hope for this seasons' defense and has seen great improvement from 2014 when he arrived at the Golden Bears football team. All eyes will be on the Bears to see if they will be able to come back just as strong or stronger after losing star quarterback Goff and his receiving corps. Top games on the 2016 Cal Golden Bears schedule will be home games against rival schools, Stanford and UCLA.
California Golden Bears Football at Cal Memorial Stadium Address: 76 Canyon Rd, Berkeley, California, 94704
The California Golden Bears play their home game at California Memorial Stadium, one of the most picturesque venues in all of college sports. Opened in 1921, and holding over 73,000, the stadium sits directly on top of a fault, and visitors can see how the structure is slowly being pulled apart, as engineers take counteractive measures. California Memorial has seen some crazy plays in its history. Who can forget Roy “Wrong Way” Riegels and his famous fumble recovery and run to the wrong end zone at the Rose Bowl in 1929, or “the Play” in 1982 when the Golden Bears made 5 lateral passes with four seconds left against Stanford to win the game as fans rushed the field? The Cal Golden Bears home bench is on the Cal Memorial Stadium sideline with sections U-Q. Cal Memorial Stadium parking information is covered in our Golden Bears event guide.
The “Big Game” is one of the highlights of every PAC 12 season and has one of the best pre-game buildups in the country. With the right to take the “Stanford Axe” back to their side of the bay on the line, this Northern California clash extends through the entire week before the game with pep rallies, bonfires, and outlandish practical jokes. On the field the competition is just as high energy and a must see for fans in California.
Cal vs. UCLA
This series epitomizes the term sibling rivalry. Both of these schools are members of the UC system, both fight over the same recruits, and they even share the same tune to their fight songs. On the field the teams have played over 80 times, including every year since 1933. With such familiarity with each other, this rivalry has no choice but to be fiercely competitive.
California Golden Bears in College Football Playoff, Bowl Games, and Pac 12 Championship
What happens when a team plays their home games at a stadium in which was modeled after the Colosseum in Rome? They win over 650 games! The California Golden Bears are the proud owners of double digit bowl wins and 14, yes 14, Conference Championships. The Pac 12 members are certainly circling their matchup with the Golden Bears on the schedule each and every year. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the Pacific 12 Conference Championship Game.
2015 Cal Football Preview
The Cal Golden Bears were just off being one of the best teams in the PAC-12 last season, losing to 3 of the top PAC-12 teams by 8 points or less. The Golden Bears offensive attack has transformed into one of the most dangerous in the PAC-12 and returns many of its stars from a season ago. The 2015 Cal offense will be led by junior quarterback Jared Goff who threw for just under 4,000 yards as a sophomore. The Golden Bears also return last season’s leading rusher Daniel Lasco, who should be one of the best backs in the PAC-12. If Goff can replicate the numbers that he had a season ago, and the Golden Bears defense can take that next step in 2015, Cal should be in the mix for a wide open PAC-12 North Title. Key games on the Cal Golden Bears 2015 football schedule will be at Texas, and in Berkley against USC, Oregon State, and Arizona State.
2014 Cal Football Preview
Sonny Dykes first year as head coach of the California Golden Bears football team was one to forget. Cal struggled early and often, recording only a single victory on the season. With another year in Dykes system, the Golden Bears look to rebound in 2014. The biggest offseason departures for Cal came on the defensive side of the ball. Gone are outstanding defensive tackles Deandre Coleman and Viliami Moala, as well as linebackers Khairi Fortt and Chris McCain. Dykes 2014 defensive squad will rely heavily on a veteran defensive line led by senior Austin Clark. Returning on the offensive side of the ball is sophomore quarterback Jared Goff. Goff threw for over 3,500 yards in his freshman season and has the potential to be one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the nation. The Cal Golden Bears will look to score in bunches in 2014 and if the offense can take that extra step, they have a great chance to go from 1 win in 2013, to bowl eligible in 2014. Must watch games on the Cal schedule will be September 27th against Colorado, October 11th against Washington, and November 22nd against Stanford.
2013 Cal Football Preview
Sonny Dykes enters his first year as the head coach of the California Golden Bears, trying to build off of what predecessor Jeff Tedford built before the program hit a wall over the last couple of seasons. Dykes brings with him an offensive style that is fast-paced and high scoring. Dykes’ former team Louisiana Tech led the nation with 52 points and 578 yards per game last season. This new offensive philosophy is the breath of fresh air that Cal has been lacking over the last few seasons. Dykes will need to find a quarterback to lead the spread offense, but freshman Zach Kline appears to be the favorite. The PAC-12 has become more competitive over the last few seasons, but the hire of Dykes has rejuvenated a Cal program that has faded into PAC-12 obscurity. The Golden Bears will host Ohio State, Oregon State, and USC in Dykes’ rookie season.
2011 Cal Football Preview
It took nine years, but Cal head coach Jeff Tedford finally found out what it felt like to stay home during Bowl Season – and he didn’t like it. After an off-season where most of the coaches were swapped, Tedford and the Bears look to restart their bowl run again as one of the first members of the newly formed Pac-12 North division (along with Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Washington and Washington State).
Besides bringing in former Offensive coordinator/line coach Jim Michalczik from the Raiders, Tedford is also changing signal callers to complete the new/fresh page mentality. Junior Zach Maynard will be under center after sitting out last year due to his transfer from Buffalo. A known QB guru, Tedford will look to improve Maynard’s 2009 Buffalo numbers (2,694 yards and 18 touchdowns) by quickly getting him up to speed with a new number one rusher (junior Isi Sofele) and two veteran wide-outs in Marvin Jones, and Keenan Allen, who broke the freshman receptions records previously held by Desean Jackson.
Defensively, the Bears are in a better situation than other side of the ball. After being a bit of an after-thought in Tedford’s high-flying scoring act, defensive coordinator Clancy Pendegrast created a unit that led the Pac-10 in 2010. And although its star end Cameron Jordan is now playing pro in New Orleans, Pendergrast has seven of the eleven starters returning, with stud end and redshirt freshman Gabe King thrown into the mix. With all those engines hitting all cylinders in Berkley in 2011, It should be a great start for the program in the Pac-12 North.
2010 Cal Football Preview
Fans of the Cal Golden Bears football team know the pleasures of attending a game at California Memorial Stadium - an arena that was designed to model the Colosseum in Rome and has repeatedly been voted one of the best college football stadiums. Throughout the years, die-hards have seen their team produce future NFL stars ,such as Aaron Rogers, Tony Gonzalez, DeSean Jackson and Marshawn Lynch. As the 2010 season kicks off, Cal can only hope that a little star power propels them to an eighth consecutive bowl game.
In 2009, coach Jeff Tedford led the Golden Bears to an eighth straight winning season, though the team finished just sixth in the Pac-10. This season, experience and returning talent may drive the team back to the top of the conference. Though the 2009 Cal team did not produce a 1,000-yard rusher for the first time in seven years, running back Shane Vereen, who ran for 952 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, will return and attempt to begin a new streak.
In addition, the Golden Bears have the edge at the tight end position; - only four Pac-10 teams field a returning TE, and Cal's Anthony Miller was the only one to receive honorable mention in all-conference honors.
The team opens its season on September 4 against UC Davis.
2009 Cal Football Preview
The Cal Golden Bears are one of the best teams in college football. So even though they finished 9-4 in 2008, they are still expected to compete for a BCS bowl in 2009. Cal Head Coach Jeff Tedford is a masterful quarterback coach, who once again will be tutoring a talented passer. Tedford will pair up with QB Kevin Riley to try to get Cal into the Rose Bowl as winners of the Pac 10.
2008 Cal Football Preview
Head Coach Jeff Tedford has turned around an ailing California Golden Bears football program and made it one of the most exciting to watch in the Pac-10. The 2007 season was a bit of a disappointment with the Golden Bears losing a number of players to the NFL and struggling to compete with the giants of the Pac-10. This coming season, however, will be an exciting one as Tedford and company continue to bring Cal back to the top of college football. A game at California Memorial Stadium this season will be a fantastic college football experience as fans watch the Golden Bears compete in the incredibly tough Pac-10 for conference honors and a bowl bid.
