BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - The sun is shining, the temperature is warm and No. 22 Stanford and California still have half a season left to play entering the 115th edition of the Big Game rivalry.
If the timing seems strange, that's because it is.
In the first of what is expected to be at least one Pac-12 rivalry moved from its normal date some years because of the expanded league's squeezed schedule, the Bay Area schools will meet at remodeled Memorial Stadium on Saturday under an odd October sky. The teams typically play the final conference game against each other - if not the last game altogether.
Stanford coach David Shaw and Cal's Jeff Tedford both said this week seems a little ``awkward.''
