Golden Bears face off against the 49ers on television tonight

Uploaded: Oct 22, 2015
For Old Blues like me who also root for the Santa Clara 49ers, we face unprecedented challenges this evening.
For the first time, likely ever, the 49er-Seahawk broadcast will run nearly simultaneously with the broadcast of Cal's game against UCLA in Southern California. Thank God for DVRs.
When pro football used to be just Sunday with one Monday game and the college game was largely confined to Saturday, such a head-to-head event would never have occurred.
Now that the pro game takes three days and college football also takes place over three days, this likely will not be the first time that a local pro broadcast ends up at the same time as the college game.
Now to the DVR to check the settings.

Dang! If I hadn't seen this I would have missed the Cal game. I'm an Old Blue that doesn't care much about 49ers but will have to DVR both since I'll be out this evening. Thanks!
