UC Berkeley officials honored the life of the late U.S. ambassador to Libya with a moment of silence before Cal's 27-17 loss to Arizona State in a Pac-12 football game Saturday.

Christopher Stevens, a 52-year-old Cal grad, was one of four Americans killed when militants attacked the American Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

The UC Berkeley campus also set up the J. Christopher Stevens Memorial Fund to receive gifts in Stevens' honor. Stevens received a B.A. in history from UC Berkeley in 1982, after which he joined the Peace Corps to launch a career in foreign service.

His image was shown on the stadium scoreboard during the moment of silence.

Donations can be made through UC Berkeley's "Give to Cal" website at www.givetocal.berkeley.edu or mailed to the J. Christopher Stevens Memorial Fund c/o University Relations, 2080 Addiston St., University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720-4200.
