On Saturday morning, the Pac-12 Conference announced the third version of the 2020 schedule and Oregon Football has key competition to make a College Football Playoff run.
Oregon Football will play six games in a shortened regular season that includes five games against their Pac-12 North opponents and one game against a Pac-12 South opponent. With no non-conference tune up this season, they will face big games for four of the six weeks including the first week against the Stanford Cardinal on November 7th. They will also finish out the ‘season’ hosting the Washington Huskies on December 12th before the Pac-12 Championship Game which is set for the following week on December 18th.

There are two Friday games on the slate in back to back weeks, which should give the rest of the country an important look at the Ducks and the rest of the conference without other games going on.
I find it interesting that none of the games the first six weeks will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network, but will be on national networks. Of course, the idea being more eyes will see the games. The television schedule for games as well as game times will be issued at a later date. For now, we have a schedule and we have practice for that schedule on pace to begin late next week on Friday.
In the pandemic world, small steps count, but this is a big step. The Pac-12 will again try to play football this year and the Ducks host Stanford in just over a month.
