2022 Cal Football Schedule Announced

Dec 16, 2021
Cal will host a seven-game home slate in 2022.

SAN FRANCISCO – Cal's 2022 football schedule will feature seven home games, highlighted by the 125th Big Game on Nov. 19, plus a trip to Notre Dame to face the Fighting Irish for the first time in 55 years on Sept. 17. The Pac-12 announced the entire schedule of games for all 12 conference schools on Thursday.

Cal will play three of its first four games at home and opens the season by hosting UC Davis (Sept. 3) and UNLV (Sept. 10) in non-conference contests before welcoming Arizona for the Bears' Pac-12 opener Sept. 24. After nearly a month on the road, Cal returns to FTX Field at California Memorial Stadium to play four of its final six regular-season games at home against Washington (Oct. 22), Oregon (Oct. 29), Stanford and UCLA (Fri., Nov. 25) for the team's annual Joe Roth Game and Senior Day.

In addition to the Notre Dame trip, Cal will travel to Pac-12 opponents Washington State (Oct. 1), Colorado (Oct. 15), USC (Nov. 5) and Oregon State (Nov. 12).

The Pac-12 Championship Game televised by FOX will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Fri., Dec. 3.

Cal will have a single bye following its road contest at Washington State and before the Bears visit Colorado.

All kickoff times and television broadcast networks will be announced at later dates.
