LISTEN TO THE BEAR REPUBLIC PODCAST HERE.
SAN FRANCISCO -- When it comes to grudge matches, there isn't any bigger for fans of California football than the upcoming Dec. 28 Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl against Texas and head coach Mack Brown.
On this week's podcast, the crew talks about the implications and the history of the much-anticipated match-up between the Bears and the Longhorns, which is arguably the biggest game Cal has played since the 2004 contest in Los Angeles between the Bears and USC.
But, the bowl game isn't the only thing on our mind. This month is a monumental one for the Bears in the recruiting world, with the commitments of offensive tackles Freddie Tagaloa and Christian Okafor, and the bevy of visits by top-level recruits.
If you want the inside dirt on Cal recruiting and want to see what kind of information a premium subscription to BearTerritory.net on a regular basis, this is the podcast to whet your appetite, as we go over the happenings on the recruiting trail and the official visitors coming to Berkeley for one of the biggest recruiting weekends in the program's history.
You can, of course, take advantage of the limited-time offer for a free 30-day trial subscription, to get the juiciest of juicy scoops, so remember to check that out.
