Cal football 2023 schedule released
The Bears have a very, very tough slate ahead.
The California Golden Bears now know what their final schedule of the Pac-12 era will look like! Cal will have a six home game, six road game slate. They’ll have an SEC matchup with Auburn. They’ll flip Arizona and Colorado for Arizona State and two-time defending Pac-12 champion Utah.
September 2: at North Texas Mean Green
September 9: Auburn Tigers
September 16: Idaho Vandals
September 23: at Washington Huskies
September 30: Arizona State Sun Devils
October 7: Oregon State Beavers
October 14: at Utah Utes
October 21: Bye week
October 28: USC Trojans
November 4: at Oregon Ducks
November 11: Washington State Cougars
November 18: at Stanford Cardinal (126th Big Game)
November 25: at UCLA Bruins
Considering Cal will play seven Pac-12 teams that won nine games or more this past season, this schedule is a bit more manageable than expected with a bye week at the proper time and an occasional easier opponent sandwiched in between the tough games. The USC/Oregon back-to-back will be a gauntlet, but otherwise the Bears should have their chances.
