Full Football Schedule Released

March 2, 2021

The Pac-12 released the full 2021 football schedule Tuesday morning and for the Bears there were few surprises.

In addition to the three non-conference games that had already been announced the Bears play four Pac-12 home games, and have one Friday contest at Oregon on Oct. 15.  They face all the teams in the Pac-12 North and see four South teams, missing Arizona State and Utah.

The Big Game is back where it belongs on the calendar, Nov. 20, the Saturday before Thanksgiving at Stanford

The Bears have their bye the weekend of Oct. 9, prior to the Friday night clash in Eugene.

Head coach Justin Wilcox had a typical, “it is what it is,” reaction.

“I don’t spend a ton of energy on whether I love the schedule, don’t love the schedule,” he said on the Pac-12 Network. “It is just the schedule, and what we spend our mental energy on is tomorrow’s practice.”

The season opener is in Berkeley against Nevada on Sept 4, followed by the much-anticipated trip to TCU, Sept. 11 then a home game against Sacramento State Sept 18.

The conference season opens on Sept. 25 at Washington. WSU comes to Berkeley Oct. 2. Then comes the bye, followed by the Friday in Eugene. The Bears return home for games against Colorado on Oct. 23 and Oregon State, Oct. 30. A trip to Arizona is on Nov. 6, USC comes to Berkeley on Nov, 13, followed by the Big Game and a trip to UCLA Nov. 27.

No kickoff times have been announced, but the Oregon game is certainly to be at night.

two Friday contests on the road, at Oregon on Oct. 15 and the season finale at UCLA, Nov. 27

October 15 is a Friday. But, November 27 is a Saturday.

Probably Arizona. Jed the Fish looks like coach of the year material (according to his heart surgeon).
