The 2013 season is in the books with Florida State as the National Champion. Now it is time to begin to focus on a new era in College Football with the College Football Playoff system that is set to begin later this year with the top four teams playing for it all. The Pac-12 Conference on Wednesday laid the groundwork for the upcoming season of its teams when the released the Conference schedule. Of course, we already know about some of the Non Conference matchups including Oregon vs Michigan State and UCLA vs Texas. Speaking of Michigan State, the game with the Spartans has been moved to September 6th and shuffled with Wyoming, now on September 13th.
The Ducks host some solid competition at Autzen Stadium for 2014, including home games with Stanford and Washington. It’s time to flip your calendars ahead to the last four months of they year and circle some dates. (We already know that game vs Cal will be on Friday, October 24th from the new Levis Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.)
Of course, the ‘big’ game in the Pac-12 again will be Oregon vs the Cardinal, only this time it’s in Eugene. Again this year we will have an early November matchup on Saturday November 1st. Washington may have lost Quarterback Keith Price, but the Huskies are a still the most hated rival of the Ducks, at least when it comes to football. Chris Peterson and the Huskies visit the Ducks on Saturday, October 18th.
The Ducks are also lined up for one Thursday night game against Arizona on Thursday, October 2nd.
