The rivalry game between the California Golden Bears and the Stanford Cardinal takes place this Saturday to headline Bay Area action this week. San Jose State faces UTSA, and that game will be streamed on ESPN3 online.

The headliner this weekend in Bay Area college football action features the California Golden Bears taking on the Stanford Cardinal in the 2012 Big Game. Cal and Stanford usually play their rivalry game the week before Thanksgiving, but due to Pac-12 scheduling constraints that wasn't possible this season. Therefore, Cal and Stanford will meet up in the next to last week of October in Memorial Stadium.

Cal has lost their last two games to Stanford in the longstanding Bay Area rivalry, including a 31-28 loss last year in Palo Alto. The Bears are 3-4 and are riding a two game winning streak into the game; the Cardinal are 4-2, losing to Notre Dame in overtime this past weekend. The Big Game is scheduled for a noon PT kickoff on FOX.

The other Bay Area football contest features the San Jose St. Spartans playing UTSA. Both teams have performed well enough that ESPN3 has decided to stream the game online. The game will be televised on 11 a.m. PT.
