The Colorado-Oregon St. game on Sept. 28, which is the Pac-12 home opener for the Beavers, and the the conference opener for the Buffs, will be a noon start. The game was relegated to the Pac-12 channel for coverage, despite there being only 5 games involving Pac-12 teams that day.
ESPN and ESPN2 will have the USC-Arizona St. and Stanford-Washington St. games in the evening, and FOX opted for the Arizona-Washington game at 4 PM, but Fox 1 and ABC bypassed the conference completely, with the Cal-Oregon game also on the Pac-12 channel in the evening.
The game will end a 3 week layoff for the Buffs, who had their game this past weekend postponed, and possibly cancelled, against Fresno St., as Colorado has a bye next week.
It will be the first weekend with a "full" Beaver Dam, as its "move in weekend" for fall term at Oregon St., and also the first game with the full band in place.
