Cal fans, already anticipating the chance to attend open practices under first-year coach Sonny Dykes, will get an all-access peek at the inner workings of the Bears in "The Drive," a 14-part docu-series that will debut on the Pac-12 Networks on Sept. 11.

Arizona State will share the spotlight with the Bears in the series that begins with a one-hour program, then unveils half-hour segments each Wednesday at 7 p.m. on all seven Pac-12 Networks.

"We're excited to partner with the Pac-12 Networks on this television show that is going to give people a unique insight into our football program," Dykes told the Pac-12. "This show will be a great chance for people to get to know our coaching staff and players, and will provide a unique perspective on what happens with Cal football on a day-to-day basis."

The Bears begin practice Monday. Their season opens Aug. 31 at home against Northwestern.
