When we first learned that the Big Game would be moving to October (as noted in the link in the title), Cal fans were understandably annoyed, but hopeful that the pageantry and traditions surrounding Big Game Week would otherwise remain relatively untouched.
It seems that we were wrong. We're hearing from a few sources that due to scheduling conflicts at the Greek Theatre and monetary conflicts, the Big Game Bonfire Rally will not take place this year in its usual form.
We're also hearing that UCRC is looking into holding a replacement Rally, sans bonfire, at an alternate location; however, to this point, there do not seem to be any finalized plans. In addition, given enough financial and public support, a Rally with a bonfire may be held the week of the game against Oregon.
We'll update as we receive more details. Stay tuned.
