California opens stadium, season vs. Nevada

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Coach Jeff Tedford has longed for state-of-the-art facilities and a modernized stadium ever since arriving at California more than a decade ago.

After 21 months as college football nomads with trailers for offices, a rugby field for practice and a baseball field for home games, the Golden Bears finally have everything Tedford wanted.

They open their remodeled Memorial Stadium on Saturday against Nevada, eager to show off the $321 million seismic retrofit and renovation that gives the Bears top-notch facilities that the team wants to match with improved play on the field.

The Bears are expecting a sellout crowd for their first on-campus home game since November 2010 after playing last season across the bay at the San Francisco Giants' home of AT&T Park.
