An 11 a.m. kickoff in the Central time zone for the Sept. 21 contest is an early start no matter how you slice it

The Pac-12 opted not to start any of its conference games at 9 a.m. Pacific time this season, but in two weeks the Bears will be playing game that starts at 9 a.m. West Coast time.

Cal announced on Monday that the Bears’ September 21 game against Mississippi in Oxford, Miss., will begin at 11 a.m. Central time. That means a 9 a.m. start for those viewing the game back here in the Bay Area.

Not everyone will be able to see the game, though, since it will televised by ESPNU. A lot of people get ESPNU, but I don’t so I’ll have to figure out a way to see it.

Cal was a 27-16 winner over Ole Miss in the only previous meeting between the teams in Berkeley in 2017.

Cal (2-0, 1-0 Pac-12) knocked off then-No. 14 Washington 20-19 last Saturday after starting the season with a 27-13 victory over UC Davis. The Golden Bears host North Texas this Saturday before traveling to Oxford.

Ole Miss (1-1, 1-0 SEC) evened its record with a home victory over Arkansas on Saturday after dropping its season-opener at Memphis. The Rebels host Southeastern Louisiana this Saturday before hosting the Bears.

Radio broadcasts of all Cal football games can be heard live on KGO 810 AM, the Cal Bears Sports Network powered by Learfield IMG College, SiriusXM satellite radio and CalBears.com via TuneIn.
