The new series caused California to postpone its series with Auburn for one year. California will now play Auburn on the road Sept. 19, 2020, and Sept. 18, 2021, in Berkeley.
It will be California’s first meeting with either school.
“Today's announcement of a home-and-home series with Ole Miss continues our philosophy of adding games that will be attractive to our fans and showcase Kabam Field at California Memorial Stadium, our campus and the entire Bay Area,” Cal athletic director Mike Williams said.
California finished 5-7 (3-6 Pac-12) in 2014 in coach Sonny Dykes' second season at the school. The Golden Bears have missed the postseason in each of the past three seasons.
