Cal football 2022 schedule dropped
The big highlight is Cal's trip to Notre Dame.
The Pac-12 Network announced the 2022 Cal schedule a few minutes ago. The list of games is below. Cal will have seven in Memorial, five on the road.
Home games are bolded.
September 3: UC Davis Aggies. This will not be an easy game. UC Davis made the FCS playoffs last year.
September 10: UNLV Runnin’ Rebels. This SHOULD be an easier game. UNLV
September 17: at Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Notre Dame nearly made the playoff this year and will be debuting a new head coach in Marcus Freeman. The Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma State will be worth checking out.
September 24: Arizona Wildcats. This has to be the year the futility ends against Arizona, right? Cal has not beaten Arizona since 2009.
October 1: at Washington State Cougars. Cal struggled the most on offense against Wazzu last season. How will they handle Jake Dickert taking the full reins?
October 8: BYE.
October 15: at Colorado Buffaloes. Our most winnable road game, Cal held Colorado to three points in its first Pac-12 victory last year.
October 22: Washington Huskies. Cal will meet the Kalen DeBoer offense for the first time.
October 29: Oregon Ducks. Cal will have its first encounter with Dan Lanning in what I’m sure will be a game in which the TV announcers don’t talk about Justin Wilcox and Oregon 50 times.
November 5: at USC Trojans. Time to meet Lincoln Riley and have a bunch of random Oklahoma fans rooting us on.
November 12: at Oregon State Beavers. Oregon State came one game away from challenging for the Pac-12 North crown. This was Cal’s most quality win of 2021.
November 19: Stanford Cardinal. David Shaw is back, so that’s fun. Cal has a chance to retain the Axe at home for the first time since 2008.
November 25 (Friday): UCLA Bruins. Cal has really struggled against UCLA in the Justin Wilcox era, with now two straight blowouts. Big Joe Roth game ahead.
