The Big Game | Berkeley v. Stanford

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 3.06.38 PMThe Big Game is the annual football game between arch-nemesis universities of Berkeley and Stanford.

More than just a football game, the event sparks a whole week of festivities and spectacular rallies on both campuses including bonfires, performances by marching bands and spirit squads, and hilarious ceremonials like the Stanford tree chopping rally.

No matter your allegiance, hardcore fans and alumni have lots to look forward to every year.

The Big Game | Berkeley v. Stanford

Join in the revelry in the Hearst Greek Theatre on the eve of Big Game for the most stunning display of the spirit.

Enjoyed by thousands of students and alumni alike, this massive bonfire is a key component in firing up fellow Californians before the Big Game. Expect a fire that reaches almost four stories high. Many alumni come to speak and share stories of Big Games past, while the football team makes a quick visit, plus different student groups perform, cries of “Freshmen, more wood” are heard all night long, and the entire theater sits in the glow of candlelight as the fires dies down.

The Bonfire Rally is scheduled to take place Friday, November 17, 2017 at 7 pm at the Greek Theatre and usually lasts about an hour.

This is definitely an event that no Cal fan would want to miss. Seating is first come first serve, and fans are encouraged to arrive early.
