While the 2020 College Football season in the Pac-12 will look anything but normal for fans, we know that games will be on television and on a national network. Two games were announced with times on Tuesday.
Both the UCLA Bruins visit to Autzen Stadium as well as the ‘midseason’ matchup with Oregon State will be broadcast by the ESPN family. Chip Kelly brings UCLA to Autzen Stadium for the first of back to back Friday night games for Oregon this season on November 20th. Kickoff is set for 7:30 pm Pacific Time on ESPN.

This game has a lot on the line for both teams as Kelly returns to Eugene again with the Bruins. He will again be looking for a likely upset win over the Ducks in a homecoming game of sorts, but it won’t be the same without fans in the stands.
There is one thing about Friday night games in November. They are just about the only sporting event on. Oregon has back to back weeks of having college football on a Friday night – Pac 12 After Dark-style and they are the only game on. It should help showcase the team for this season and if they perform well, should also help in the standings as some conferences started well ahead of Oregon and the Big Ten Conference also has a few weeks on the Pac-12 as far as the season start.
The second game announced was the matchup with Oregon State in Corvallis on Friday, October 27th. The game will be broadcast in one of three available slots on Thanksgiving weekend. The option are 12:30 pm, 4 pm or 7:30 pm Pacific Time. Gametime will be announced at a later date and will likely depend on other game selections made from other networks as we get closer.
The opening game for the 2020 season vs Stanford at Autzen Stadium on Saturday, November 7th has not yet been announced.
