The game is blacked out in San Francisco and other parts of the Bay Area, so if you can't wait for the tape-delayed feed, the media will likely be tweeting from the game. Check out the Sam Lam, Maiocco, Barrows, and Barber twitter feeds.

The 49ers head over to Oakland for their annual preseason bragging rights battle with the Oakland Raiders. Things are a bit different this year because the 49ers and Raiders square off in the regular season as well. So really, bragging rights remain up for grabs after tonight. Given the regular season matchup, I'd imagine things will remain relatively vanilla at this point.

At the same time, this is the third preseason game, which means the first string offense gets the most playing time they'll see all preseason. Furthermore, the 49ers will have guys like Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, and Brian Westbrook back on the field. Having them around provides Alex Smith with his usual complement of weapons. After his strong performance on last week's opening drive, it'd be nice to see him put together a couple of touchdown-scoring drives.
