Raiders to Recognize Cal Football Sunday
Dec. 17, 2004
The Oakland Raiders will host the University of California football team, coaches and staff during Sunday's game versus the Tennessee Titans at Network Associates Coliseum.
The Cal student-athletes, coaches and football staff will be honored on the field at halftime.
'We are proud to honor Cal's tremendous student athletes, coaches and entire football program,' said Raiders Chief Executive Amy Trask.
Cal Head Coach Jeff Tedford stated: 'We really appreciate this honor and want to thank the Raider organization for their gracious invitation. Our kids have had a great season and it's nice that someone has chosen to recognize their achievements.'
The Raiders have previously honored the Cal women's swim team at a game and this year honored Olympic Gold Medalist Natalie Coughlin prior to the Raiders' September 26 game against Tampa Bay. The Cal Marching Band performed a special Raiders-themed halftime show at that game.
