LOS ANGELES — The Occidental football team boarded a bus headed for Mexicali, Mexico on Friday morning a day in advance of its season-opening exhibition against CETYS on Saturday at 7 p.m.
CETYS is an academically elite private Mexican institution with a total of 7,600 students at three campuses in Tijuana, Mexicali and Ensenada. They are in the middle of a multi-year process to join NCAA Division II and the PacWest Conference.
