With an overtime loss to Stanford last night, the Oregon in-state rivalry will have a noon PT kickoff on the Pac-12 Networks as the Pac-12 enters the end of the regular season with multiple teams playing their rivals.
This will mark the Ducks’ fourth appearance on the networks. Had they remain undefeated, the rivalry would have likely had a later kickoff on FOX. Instead, Stanford and UCLA will meet up at 3:30 p.m. PT in a potential preview of the Pac-12 Championship. If the Cardinal win, Stanford would host the Bruins in that title game.
Oregon still has a chance to make the conference championship, but they must defeat Oregon State this Saturday and Stanford would need to lose.
Other Pac-12 matchups include a big game in the coliseum. USC hosts newly-ranked first place Notre Dame in their annual rivalry. Kickoff is at 5:00 p.m. PT on ABC. As usual this season, there is no other regional game in primetime on ABC.
Three other Pac-12 games will be on the Friday after Thanksgiving. FX will be showing Utah vs. Colorado with kickoff at noon PT, marking the fourth straight week the Buffaloes will be on FOX’s national cable network. FOX’s local network will be showing the Apple Cup (Washington vs. Washington State) at 12:30 p.m. PT. Finally, the Duel in the Desert (Arizona State vs. Arizona) kicks off at 7:00 p.m. PT on ESPN.
