The California Golden Bears basketball team lost to the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors to end the 2015-16 revenue sports season. The California Golden Bears football team will take on the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors to start the 2016-17 revenue sports season. Symmetry!

We now have a confirmed time for Cal vs. Hawaii. The Bears will take on the Warriors on Saturday, August 27th, 2016 at noon local time. Of course, Australia is running a day ahead of schedule, so the game will be taking place in America late Friday night.

Converted by time scales, the game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. Pacific kickoff, 10 p.m. Eastern kickoff. Pac-12 After Dark back!

As for television, the decision seems to be between ESPN, Fox Sports 1, or Pac-12 Network. I very much doubt the game will go to Pac-12 Network--by that time the networks will be starved for football (they broadcast an FCS game that came a week early last year).
