How to watch Cal v. TCU college football game without cable

The California Golden Bears (0-1) travel to Fort Worth, Texas, this week to face off against the Texas Christian Horned Frogs (1-0) of the Big 12 Conference on Saturday, Sept. 11, at 2:30 p.m. Central.

The Golden Bears will be motivated to make a statement victory in Week Two after starting the 2021 college football season last week with a 17-22 loss against the Nevada Wolf Pack at home.

Cal fans will likely pay special attention to redshirt senior California quarterback Chase Garbers. The last time the two schools met, a 7-10 Cal loss in overtime in the 2018 Cheez-It Bowl, Garbers disappointed, throwing fewer than 100 yards and three interceptions.

Saturday’s match-up against TCU is California's second-ever game against the Horned Frogs.

Last week, TCU blew out the Duquesne Dukes of the Northeast Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision, 45-3, at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

Earlier this week, sportsbook oddsmakers set the betting line as California +10 with a 49 total. The California Golden Bears are 10-point underdogs against the TCU Horned Frogs in Week Two of the 2021 college football season.

The Cal v. TCU betting line has since moved to California +11 and a 47 and one-half total for over-and-under point-total bets, as of Friday, Sept. 10, according to, an aggregator of legal sportsbook operators in Las Vegas and around the country.

TCU Head Coach Gary Patterson has never lost to a Pac-12 team.

In a press conference this week, Coach Patterson said he fell asleep watching Cal v. Nevada.
