Portland State at Cal

When, where: 3:15 p.m. Saturday, Memorial Stadium

Radio: KTRO (93.1 FM)

Notes: It's No. 13 PSU (2-0) vs. No. 21 Cal (1-1), but OK, Division I-A Cal plays at a different level and had to open at Tennessee, while I-AA Portland State was at New Mexico. … PSU is 0-4 all-time against the Pac-10 (two losses to Oregon, two to Oregon State), but the Vikings (2-0) have played well enough to not be overlooked, even by a Cal. 'They're a veteran group, know what they're doing and really look comfortable out there,' Bear coach Jeff Tedford says. 'They look like a very good I-A team to me.' … The Viks aren't saying they can't win, but they are treating it largely as a game that will make them even tougher in the Big Sky season. 'We're going in there just like it's a regular team,' cornerback Dominic Dixon says. 'It's a great opportunity for us to showcase our talents.' … PSU President Daniel Bernstine is a Cal grad. … Receiver Tremayne Kirkland lined up behind center for three plays last week, with regular QB Sawyer Smith split wide. … Linebacker Adam Hayward has 25 tackles.
