The California Golden Bears paddle across the Bay to finalize their season in their new lair at AT&T Park, where the team has feasted on Pac-12 opponents for the entirety of the 2011 season. Fearsome claws will fly at the park’s concluding games, which pit the Bears against Washington State on November 5 and Oregon State on November 12. While the opposing team’s offense stretches the field, Cal Head Coach Jeff Tedford counters with a defensive attack led by senior and second-team All-Pac-10 linebacker Mychal Kendricks. This year, the offense hands the ball to quarterback Zach Maynard, a promising junior whose cleats are sure to be stained with end-zone paint by the culminating game of the season.
Also the home of the San Francisco Giants, AT&T Park was transformed into Bear Territory while Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium has been undergoing renovations. Fans seated in bleachers behind the visiting-team bench can stare longingly at the Coca-Cola Superslide in left field or eavesdrop on opponents as they pump each other up with Braveheart-style speeches.
