After a few extra days of waiting, we now know when Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins will face Oregon Football at Autzen Stadium.
Of course, what are a few extra days when fans can’t actually go to the games. The coronavirus pandemic has canceled games and rescheduled games this season in the Pac-12 and around the country. The Ducks and Bruins were set to meet Friday night, but that changed to Saturday.
Oregon and UCLA will meet on Saturday for an early afternoon tilt at 12:30 pm Pacific Time. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

After several cancellations, we saw our first Sunday Pac-12 Game earlier this week as the Bruins met the California Golden Bears at the Rose Bowl. After a fast California start, the Bruins found a way to a win using both the arm and legs of Quarterback Dorian Thompson Robinson.
Robinson threw for 196 yards and 3 touchdowns and also ran for over 50 yards finishing third on the team for the game, a 34-10 win over the Golden Bears. Oregon will counter with a Quarterback who is also having a solid start.
Tyler Shough has started the first two games for Oregon Football and is 2-0. He has used his arm showing off his explosive play ability, while also using his feet, when needed, for yards. Shough has even found the endzone. Oregon has a dual-threat quarterback who is also working with a totally revamped offensive line, but you wouldn’t know it.
The Oregon ground game has also impressed the first two games with CJ Verdell being the workhorse. Travis Dye has stepped in as the change of pace and has also impressed for the Ducks. Verdell will be looking for another 100 yard game on the ground.
Oregon Football welcomes back Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 12:30 pm Pacific Time on ESPN2.
