The 2014 Cal football schedule features an early bye, a brutal mid-season back-to-back and a season finale against Brigham Young on the Saturday following Thanksgiving.
The Pac-12 released the schedules for each team Wednesday. Kickoff times were not announced.
The Bears have seven home games, but one (Oregon) has been moved to Levi's Stadium, the 49ers' new home in Santa Clara.
The Oct. 24 tangle at Levi's comes six days after the Bears host UCLA. Both the Ducks and Bruins are expected to be top-10 caliber teams next season.
The Big Game is slotted in its traditional spot on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
