HOTFAA converges on Berkeley once again for the 107th Big Game, Saturday, November 20, 2004. Cal is a 24.5 point favorite in this game that almost caps (Southern Miss still to come) the Bears' best season since the Pappy Waldorf years. Whether you have seen the Bears play in person this year or not, this game is not to be missed. A possible Rose Bowl birth hangs in the balance. Read more about the matchup in this edition of Bear No_es.

As always, the big party night will be Friday and then we'll stagger to the game Saturday.

It looks like it will be great weekend in Berkeley.
