California schedules home-and-homes with North Carolina, TCU
The Golden Bears will play at North Carolina on Sept. 2, 2017, and the Tar Heels travel to Berkeley on Sept. 1, 2018.
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.
The Golden Bears went 1-11 last season in their first year under head coach Sonny Dykes. The team opens the 2014 season Aug. 30 at Northwestern.
