A game scheduled for next year, but later called off for unnamed reasons, Cal and Baylor won’t be hauling their equipment any time soon on a 16-hour flight to the capital of New South Wales of Sydney, which is off the eastern coast of Australia.
Instead, Cal is looking at another potential opponent in Hawaii, who is sandwiched between California and the land down under.

And Hawaii isn’t all too unfamiliar with the term ‘jet lag,’ since traveling to Columbus, Ohio, in week two, which required a 4,500-mile plane ride in the opposite direction of Hawaii’s campus.
An overseas contest for the two schools would mean obtaining a waiver issued by the NCAA since the game itself is in an unlikely position on the calendar. But if the Cal/Hawaii season opener in Australia goes sour, both programs will resume normal scheduling as Cal would play FCS opponent, South Dakota State, and Hawaii would make a journey to Michigan on September 3.
Note: The 3-0 Bears will likely see their stud at quarterback, Jared Goff (898 yards, 9 TD, 2 INT), strap up for Washington after Goff suffered an ankle injury in week three.
