Nevada and Cal have agreed to play a two-for-one series beginning next season.

Nevada will host Cal at Mackay Stadium for the first time ever on Sept. 18, 2010 and the Wolf Pack will travel to Berkeley twice in future dates. Those dates have not yet been released.

Next year's game between the Wolf Pack and the Bears will be the 25th meeting all-time between the schools but it will be just the second meeting since 1934 and the first-ever matchup to be played in Reno.

“In terms of a regional matchup between two highly competitive teams, this series makes sense,” Nevada senior associate athletic director Rory Hickok said. “We've had on-going discussions with Cal for quite awhile and we're excited to finally be able to put this together. We look forward to having the Golden Bears and their fans come to Mackay Stadium next season and we know our fans are looking forward to visiting Berkeley in future years."

Nevada originally was scheduled to host San Diego State on Sept. 18, but the game has been moved to Sept. 10, 2016.

Nevada’s nonconference schedule for next season is now complete. The Wolf Pack will open the season at home against Colorado State and also play road games against BYU and rival UNLV.
