Tickets for the general public are on sale and can be purchased here. Kickoff is set for 4:00 p.m.


Motorists should expect delays on all bridges and freeways leading into San Francisco for at least two hours before the start of the game and for at least two hours after the end of the game. Fans attending the games are encouraged to take public transportation.

    Jennie… The Cal / Stanford Game is historically known as “The Big Game”…
    This game has nothing to do w/ that… It does not imply that Fresno is from or near “The Bay”… it simply says the Battle BY the Bay… It could be any two teams…

    I like it! This is an opportunity to see a good college game. The 49ers are helping promote this game to help Cal. With the LOCKOUT this maybe the only chance to see a game at the STICK’ for a while. It seems like some 49er fans are offended that CAL is playing there, which I think is ridiculous. I know I enjoy “FOOTBALL”. I go to HS and college games. I am thinking about going and taking my son.
