SF Chronicle: Cal to Play Tiny Presbyterian College at AT&T Park

John Crumpacker
In one of the most puzzling football scheduling decisions in school history, Cal has agreed to play Presbyterian College of Clinton, S.C., on Sept. 17 at AT&T Park to fill one of the two vacancies on its 2011 slate. The school with an enrollment of 1,200 students is a member of the Big South Conference and is in the Football Championship Subdivision, formerly Division I-AA. The Presbyterian Blue Hose finished 2-9 last year, losing to the likes of The Citadel, North Greenville, Coastal Carolina, Stony Brook and Gardner-Webb.
"Cal will be a great trip for us," coach Harold Nichols said on the school's website. Coach Jeff "Tedford is doing great things out there and it'll be a fun game and a great experience for our guys." While Presbyterian trumpeted the game on its website, Cal has yet to make a similar announcement and had no comment Tuesday. Cal had been hoping to announce both of its remaining unfilled dates at the same time. The other date is Sept. 10.
