DBD 8.27.13 - Cal Bears Football on Sorkin's "The Newsroom" Episode 7, Season 2

For any of you who caught Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" Sunday night, you may have noticed that Will McEvoy is watching the California Golden Bears playing the UCLA Bruins on a TV in his office. The footage is actually of the 2006 Cal vs. UCLA game since it is being broadcast by ESPN and the score is Cal 14 to UCLA 10. Cal went on to win the game 38-24 behind an electric punt return for a TD by DeSean Jackson (Youtube music NSFW). Here's a screen grab from the show of Coach Tedford looking at his play sheet.

And for anyone that wants to see the segment where Will mentions the game, check it out on Youtube. If I recall correctly, CJ Cregg, the White House Spokesperson for the Bartlett Administration in Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing is a Cal graduate. Go Bears!
