This Saturday marks the 10th meeting between CAL and ILLINOIS. The ILLINI lead the series 7-2, including 4-0 in Berkley against the Golden Bears. Cal won the last meeting 31-24 in Champaign under the strength of Aaron Rodgers. But, the last time we visited Berkley ILLINOIS came away victories 44-17 (2001) - the year we won the BIG 10 and went to New Orleans to play LSU in the Sugar Bowl. Although, if we emerge victorious this time it will be a major upset of astronomical proportion. CAL is ranked 15. ILLINOIS is currently ranked 63rd. We'll see come Saturday.
