The California Bears are nearing an agreement to play the University of Hawaii in a game in Australia next season, reports Jeff Faraudo of the San Jose Mercury News.
According to the report, plans for the game could be finalized in the next few weeks. Speculation is that the game could take place in Sydney on Aug. 27.
There were two college football games played in Australia last season—the Bahamas Bowl in December between Western Kentucky and Central Michigan, and the Croke Park Classic in August between Penn State and UCF.
Cal has never played in Australia, but did play in Tokyo in 1987.
