Oregon Ducks

The Oregon Ducks (3-2) may not have played this past weekend but the season isn't done just yet.

The Pac-12 has announced Oregon, the second-place team in the Pac-12 North will play Colorado (4-1, 3-1), the second-place team in the Pac-12 South, during Week 7 of the Pac-12 season, but the game will take place in Los Angeles at USC.

The game will take place in Los Angeles in case either team needs to fill in to play in the Pac-12 Championship on Friday, December 18th.

Currently, Washington is set to play at USC against the Trojans but the Huskies needed to cancel its Week 6 game at Oregon due to the inability to field a roster with 53 scholarship players. Should Washington not be able to play, Oregon would represent the Pac-12 North division. 

Kickoff is currently set for 6:00 p.m. on Fox Sports 1 on Saturday, December 19th. 

Last season, Oregon hosted Colorado and blew out the Buffaloes on a nationally televised Friday game 45-3. The two teams did not play this season.
