The San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders square off in their annual preseason rivalry contest Saturday evening at 5:00pm. This year's contest takes place at Candlestick Park where game time temperatures will likely be in the 50s by the time kickoff gets here. While Sebastian Janikowski has played at least once every other year at Candlestick, new 49ers kicker David Akers has limited time at the Stick and will look to get used to the swirling gusts that can make kicking in San Francisco as difficult as just about anywhere else.
The game will be broadcast on two separate channels with KPIX CBS 5 hosting the 49ers broadcast, while KTVU Fox 2 provides the Raiders broadcast. Additionally, you can listen to the game on AM and FM radio stations as follows:
49ers: 107.7 The Bone, KNBR 680 AM
Raiders: KITS 105.3 FM, KFRC 1550 AM
Both teams have plenty to build on this week and it should be a spirited affair. Although it's only a preseason game, mixing in a legitimate geographic rival adds a little something extra to the mix.
