Last year, the Cal football team gave Ohio State a near-heart attack as it pulled near an upset. Unfortunately, the Bears blew it in the dying minutes, losing the game to the Buckeyes, 35-28. Can Cal buck Ohio State this time at Berkeley?
And Gameday, after a hiatus in the Portland State game, is back! This week is primarily focused on Cal football players outside the football field? What is new head coach Sonny Dykes doing to improve the academic scores of his team? What happens to a player whose football career is abruptly ended in a freak injury? How does a walk-on football player balance school, football, and his main passion — composing music?
The live blog will be presented to you by our 2013 Cal football beat writers Connor Byrne, Annie Gerlach, Michael Rosen and Sean Wagner-McGough.
Kickoff at Memorial Stadium is at 4 p.m.
