Cal will host TCU in the first year of the series on Sept. 5, 2020, and will visit the Horned Frogs on Sept. 11, 2021.

The initial game of each home-and-home will mark the first time California has ever played either school, barring a meeting in a bowl game before then.

Cal currently has home-and-homes scheduled against Texas and San Diego State over the next two years, hosting the Aztecs and playing at the Longhorns in 2015 and doing the reverse in 2016.
