There are bears in the Berkeley Hills, powerful beasts who can knock a man down without fear - but these aren’t normal bears, rather the California Golden Bears of the University of California, Berkeley. From their den in California Memorial Stadium, the Golden Bears have fought bravely for their school and their state, winning ten postseason bowls and raising 27 All-Americans since their beginning in 1886. Unless you book Cal Bears football parking spaces in advance, you might end up parking in the wilderness. California Memorial Stadium opened in November of 1923, and was renovated in 2012 due to repairs and strengthening of the structure due to seismic activity.
“The Big Game” between UC Berkeley and Stanford occurs at California Memorial Stadium in even-numbered years, while during odd years it occurs at Stanford. This famous game has formalized the friendly rivalry between the two schools. If you plan ahead and book your Cal Bears Football parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz, you can save yourself both time and frustration.
The California Golden Bears have a history that begins in 1886, in the very early days of Gridiron Football. Between 1920 and 1925, the Cal Golden Bears were not defeated for fifty consecutive games, winning 46 times and tying four times. Another long streak was while Lynn “Pappy” Waldorf was the head coach, where between 1947-1950, 33 games were won by the Cal Golden Bears, one after the other. Following Pappy’s retirement in 1956, the team fell on some rough times, until Jed Tedford was hired in 2002 as head coach, racking up eight winning seasons in a row as well as going to seven consecutive bowl games. With an all-time record of .559, it’s no wonder that the school loves their team.
