California vs. UC Los Angeles football gamethread: Third time's a charm for a season-opener?

Welp, with basically no notice, we’ll be opening the season with a road trip to SoCal! After our game against Arizona State and their game against Utah were cancelled due to positive COVID tests, this contest between UCs was thrown together at the last minute.

UC L.A. wasn’t on our latest football schedule, so this gives us the opportunity to continue our streak of games against them—otherwise we would have snapped our streak of games that started in 1933. This will be our 91st meeting, with the Baby Bears leading the series 54–34–1 (with a forfeited and a vacated game in there, which is why the numbers don’t add up).

UC Los Angeles is 0–1 on the season, losing their opener to Colorado last week, 48–42.

Use this thread to comment on the game and also join in on our livestream if you’ve ever wondered what Rob’s bedhead looks like.

Kick-off is scheduled for 9 a.m. PT on FS1. But at this rate, something’s probably gonna happen between now and then and the game will be cancelled. Thanks, world! I’ve told y’all that life sucks and none of you believed me.
