Cal holds mock game at renovated stadium



BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — California’s renovated Memorial Stadium has passed its first test and now the Golden Bears are ready to see it filled up on game day.

Coach Jeff Tedford said Wednesday that a mock game the previous night went off with only a few glitches.

The Bears practiced running onto the field for pregame introductions, they had test runs for the lights, clock and public address system and even had the band on hand.

Tedford said there were a few issues with the play clock but nothing that should stop the $321 million seismic retrofit and renovation from being ready for the opener against Nevada on Sept. 1.
