Football coach Dan Hawkins started off Homecoming with a booming cheer thanking the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh! at Pajamarino Friday (Oct. 12), and that mood would continue throughout the weekend.

The weekend started with the traditional pajama-clad parade route through Davis — with a new route that started on campus — and ended with an overtime win in front of 11,000 people — the largest crowd ever recorded at Aggie Stadium.

Here’s a look at some of the weekend's activities:
