"Cal football players trying to get peers to go to Memorial Stadium"

After Tuesday’s practice, many of the players trekked down the hill from the stadium to pass out water and schedules and help students move into their dorms — an effort they hope will make them more relatable and ultimately inspire their peers to attend games.


Cal drew an average of 36,548 fans per game last season, filling a Pac-12-worst 58.5 percent of its 62,467 seats. Half of the conference schools filled at least 91 percent of their stadiums for home games in 2017, and only Cal and UCLA (60.6 percent) were beneath 75 percent.
