Pac-12 After Dark: Cal-Washington On ESPN At 7:30 PM

Oct 10, 2022
Senior Daniel Scott and the Golden Bears will take on Washington in a Pac-12 After Dark contest on October 22.

BERKELEY – ESPN will televise Cal's first night game of the 2022 season against Washington on Saturday, October 22 with the Pac-12 After Dark contest kicking off from FTX Field at California Memorial Stadium at 7:30 pm PT. A trio of former Cal football players – Ahmad Anderson, Justin Forsett and Marshawn Lynch – will be among 11 honored during a halftime ceremony the evening after they are formally inducted into the Cal Athletic Hall of Fame during an on-campus ceremony Friday.

Cal and Washington have split four games since Travers Family Head Football Coach Justin Wilcox took over the Golden Bears' program in 2017 including back-to-back Cal wins over a pair of ranked Husky teams in 2018 and 2019. Cal knocked off a No. 15/13 Washington squad, 12-10, on the strength of Evan Weaver's pick-six late in the third quarter the last time they played in Berkeley in 2018. The following season Cal was a 20-19 winner over a No. 14/12 Washington team on a wild night in Seattle when the game was delayed in the first quarter by two hours and 39 minutes due to lightning and ended at 1:22 am. Cal's Greg Thomas made a chip shot 17-yard field with 0:08 seconds remaining to cap a 74-yard drive for the win. Washington had a dramatic 31-24 overtime victory over the Bears the last time they met in 2021 when current Cal linebacker Jackson Sirmon forced a fumble in the extra period and were a 38-7 winner in Seattle in 2017. The 2020 scheduled meeting between the teams was canceled by COVID.
