“The Pac-12 announced today that Cal will now play at UCLA on Sunday, November 15 at 9:00am PT,” Pac-12 Conference said in a statement. “The scheduling of this game is consistent with the Conference’s commitment to provide opportunities for student-athletes through maximum scheduling flexibility while still prioritizing health and safety.  The announcement follows the cancellation of the Cal at Arizona State game and the Utah at UCLA game earlier today.  The Cal at UCLA game will air on Fox Sports 1.
“In light of the Sunday scheduling of this game, the Conference has rescheduled the UCLA at Oregon game currently scheduled to take place on Friday evening, November 20 to Saturday, November 21, with the exact game time to be announced as soon as confirmed.  The game will air on the ESPN family of networks.”

These two teams were not slated to play this season. However, due to postponements due to the coronavirus, they will play once again.

The Bears lost their game to the Arizona State Sun Devils due to head coach Herm Edwards’ coronavirus positive test. Then, UCLA lost a game to the Utah Utes due to COVID-19 protocols.

California is 34-55-1 all-time against UCLA. The Bears won the last meeting on November 30th, 2019, in a 28-18 win over the Bruins.

The Bears were in danger of losing back-to-back games. California had their November 7th game against the Washington Huskies canceled.

“We have known from the beginning of this pandemic that there could be challenges this season and that we would need to remain flexible and find ways to be creative while still keeping the health and safety of our student-athletes as our No. 1 priority,” California Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton said. “This has certainly been an emotional rollercoaster for those in our program, particularly our student-athletes, but we need to remain as diligent as ever and proceed within federal, state and local protocols. We are appreciative of the work from all involved to be able to play this game on short notice.”
