If you have been walking up College Avenue to the campus in the past two days, you might have noticed a giant blue robot standing upright in front of Kroeber Plaza, facing toward the avenue. Some of you may have wondered: what on earth is that?
Well, curious bystander, Kroeber Plaza, on Bancroft and College, will be home to the FOX College Saturday show for tomorrow’s Cal football game against Ohio State. The festivities — from games to prizes — will start at 10:30 a.m., and the broadcast will be at 11:30 a.m. Fox will also be giving out free stuff, including Fox Sports 1 gear and gift cards. If you get there early enough with your best Cal face on, you probably will be on national television. All in all, this seems like a cool event, bringing national exposure to Berkeley.
This is a foreign sight for most — if not all — Cal students, considering Cal football’s halcyon days under former head coach Jeff Tedford was five, six years ago. With new coach Sonny Dykes in town, there’s renewed interest in Cal.
Let’s just hope this won’t be the first and last one for another five, six years.
