Big Game Week

Big Game Week is the Rally Committee’s busiest and most exciting week of the year. The entire week is filled with events, rallies, and tons of spirit celebrating the traditions of Cal. The week culminates with the Bonfire Rally, which is one of our biggest rallies of the year, and of course the Big Game against our rivals across the bay.
