Cal has called a news conference for today at AT&T Park at which it will announce that the football team will play its 2011 home games at the Giants' waterfront ballpark, a source confirmed Sunday.

The Bears will play the 2010 season at Memorial Stadium, their home venue for more than 80 years. The stadium will undergo a renovation and retrofit that is expected to be done by the start of the 2012 season. The project begins in June but isn't expected to impact the current season.

Cal has played in Memorial Stadium since 1923.
