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.

A video feed of the event can be found on the left side of the CETYs Facebook page under live steam or at CETYS Youtube page

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. Oxy has competed against CETYS already this year in a men's soccer exhibition and a few years ago hosted the school in a men's basketball exhibition.
