Cal to play home-and-home against San Jose St.

BERKELEY — Cal will play a home-and-home football series against San Jose State, reviving a rivalry that hasn't been played since 1996.

The schools announced Wednesday that San Jose State will play at Cal on Sept. 14, 2019. The return game will be in San Jose on Sept. 16, 2023. That will mark just the second time the Spartans will host the Golden Bears.

The teams have not played since 1996 when Cal won 29-6 in San Jose. The Bears have won 29 of 35 meetings in a series that dates back to 1899. The Spartans last won in 1987 when they beat the Bears 27-25.
