Sophomore wide receiver to begin answering questions from fans at 1:00 p.m. PT

Keenan Allen to Chat Live Wednesday on CalBears.com

 

(BERKELEY) – Cal football All-American candidate Keenan Allen will chat live with fans on CalBears.com this Wednesday, Nov. 9. Allen will hit the chat room to start answering questions at 1:00 p.m. PT.

The sophomore is in the midst of one of the biggest seasons ever by a Cal wide receiver, leading the Bears with 75 receptions, 1,074 receiving yards and five touchdown catches. Allen’s receptions and receiving yards through the team’s first nine games already rank tied for third and fourth on Cal’s all-time single-season lists. He is on pace to equal Dameane Douglas’ school-record 100 receptions in 1998 and come up just short of the school-record 1,504 receiving yards posted by Geoff McArthur in 2003 over 12 regular-season contests. Allen also has the possibility of adding a bowl game to his 2011 schedule.

Allen’s per-game numbers rank sixth nationally in receiving yards (119.33) and seventh in receptions (8.33). He is second in the Pac-12 in both.

Allen and his teammates will play their final home game of the 2011 campaign against Oregon State at AT&T Park on Saturday, Nov. 12. Kickoff for the Pac-12 contest to be telecast by CSN California is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. PT.

In addition, the commercial radio broadcast of all Cal football games can be heard on the IMG College Sports Radio Network, with KGO 810 AM in San Francisco serving as the flagship station. The KGO broadcast is also available live online at CalBears.com, while KALX 90.7 FM offers fans the student radio broadcast.

In addition to the home finale, Cal has remaining road tilts at Stanford (Saturday, Nov. 19) and Arizona State (Friday, Nov. 25, 8:15 p.m. MT, ESPN). If Stanford defeats Oregon this Saturday, the Big Game will be telecast by ABC to a minimum of 51% of the nation’s households with a start time of 5:00 p.m. PST. Should Stanford fall to Oregon, the Cal-Stanford game would be telecast by ESPN and start at 7:15 p.m. PST.

After playing the last 88 seasons and every home game at Memorial Stadium since the facility opened for the 1923 Big Game, Cal hosted its home contests outside of Berkeley in 2011 for the first time since Memorial Stadium opened while the venue undergoes an extensive renovation and retrofit. The Bears are slated to return to Memorial Stadium for their 2012 home schedule. For updates on the progress of the renovation and retrofit of Memorial Stadium as well as the Memorial Stadium webcam, visit stadium.berkeley.edu.

I am a big time sports fan. I love my LA Lakers (don't hate) and my CAL Golden Bears (duh). I pretty much watch any sport, so when the Olympics are on don't bother me. I love finding great food. The website I work for and also use ALL THE TIME for food is www.TryCaviar.com. I'm always looking to find great food and something unique. I watch way too many shows and movies and still looking for more, so if you got any great shows or movies to recommend, please tell me!
