As the calendar flips to June we are now close to three months away from the return of College Football and for fans of the Oregon Ducks, the first part of the Non-Conference schedule now has some start times associated. While the Ducks non-conference schedule is not really near what they played last season facing Michigan State, the Ducks will still have to contend with some players in the Pac-12 Conference, that part of the schedule will be announced closer to those games.

The games that have been announced were by the Pac-12 Conference on Wednesday according to The Oregon Ducks will take on UC Davis on September 3rd for a 2pm Pacific Time kickoff on the Pac-12 Networks.

Last week the Pac-12 announced that they were looking into ‘limiting’ night games within the Conference and the plan they put in place would cut the number down by an average of four, which is an improvement from last season. However, this new resolution does not apply to networks outside the Pac-12 like ESPN or FOX. Why do I mention this?

The Oregon Ducks will see their first night game against Virginia at Autzen Stadium in Week 2 of the Regular season on Saturday September 10th for a 7:30pm Pacific Time kickoff on ESPN. The final Non-Conference game against Nebraska will have a game time announced within either the six or twelve day window, but will likely be determined by the Big Ten Conference within the next month when they release their slate of televised games for the upcoming season.
