Misc.: This is the oldest rivalry on the West Coast.

Ten games to remember:
1) 1982: "The Play" gives Cal a 25-20 win. Led by John Elway, Stanford takes
a 20-19 lead on a 34-yard field goal by Mark Harmon with 4 seconds left. On
the ensuing kickoff, Cal scores on a five-lateral, 57-yard run that ends when
the Bears' Kevin Moen runs through the Stanford band and knocks over trombonist
Gary Tyrrell in the end zone.

2) 1972: Vince Ferragamo hits Steve Sweeney with a TD pass on the final play of
Cal's 24-21 victory.

3) 1974: Mike Langford kicks a 50-yard field goal on the final play in
Stanford's 22-20 victory.

4) 2000: In the Big Game's first overtime contest, seldom-used Stanford
fullback Casey Moore catches a 25-yard TD pass in the Cardinal's 36-30
win in Berkeley.

5) 1990: John Hopkins kicks a 37-yard field goal for a 27-25 Cardinal victory.

6) 1999: Stanford's 31-13 win clinches the Pac-10 title and a Rose Bowl berth.

7) 1959: Stanford quarterback Dick Norman throws for an NCAA-record 401 yards,
but Cal wins 20-17.

8) 1976: Cal's Markey Crane fumbles on his 2 with 1:31 left and Bears ahead
24-19. Stanford's Ron Inge scores game-winning TD for a 27-24 win.

9) 1947: With less than three minutes left in the 50th Big Game, Cal
All-American Jackie Jensen throws a 15-yard pass to Paul Keckley, who
runs 65 yards for the game-winning TD.

10) 1892: Stanford upsets Cal 14-10 in the first Big Game, played at the corner
of Haight and Stanyan streets in San Francisco. Stanford manager Herbert Hoover,
who later became the 31st President, reports a staggering $30,000 in gate receipts.
