Cal Adds Minnesota, Wyoming to Future Football Schedules

BERKELEY – Cal added two more opponents to its future football schedules with the announcement Tuesday of home-and-home series with Minnesota and Wyoming in 2028 and 2029. The Golden Bears will visit the Golden Gophers on Sept. 16, 2028, before Minnesota returns the trip by playing in Berkeley on Sept. 1, 2029. Cal will host Wyoming on Sept. 2, 2028, then travel to Laramie on Sept. 8, 2029.

The news follows the announcement last week that Cal will play a two-game set with Florida in 2026 and 2027.

Cal leads Minnesota in the all-time series, 4-2, and has won the last two contests with a victory in Berkeley in 2006 followed three seasons later by a win at Minnesota in 2009. Jahvid Best had one of the more memorable performances in school history in the 2009 meeting with a Cal single-game record five touchdown rushes.

Cal was a 17-15 winner against Wyoming in the only meeting between the schools in the 1990 Copper Bowl in Tucson.

Cal finished the 2019 season with an 8-5 overall record and won four of five games to close out the year including victories at Stanford and UCLA, and vs. Illinois in the Redbox Bowl. The Bears have improved their record in each of the last two seasons under head coach Justin Wilcox and tied for second in the Pac-12 North last year for their highest finish since the Pac-12 split into North and South divisions in 2011.

Ticket information for the future games against Minnesota and Wyoming will be announced at a later date. For information on 2020 season tickets or placing a deposit for Cal football membership, visit calbea.rs/20fbtickets, or call (800) GO BEARS (462-3277) and press 3 to contact a Gold Standard service representative.

Great to see! The Minnesota series was certainly enjoyable for Cal! Seems like their new coach has them on the upswing as well...

But if they offered Cal $1.9 million and a wine train from Chicago for a one-off at Minnesota or Wyoming, Jim Knowlton would be a fool to turn down that offer!
