2012 Oregon St., Pac-12 Schedule

New, comments

Oregon St. will play 7 home games in 2012, starting and finishing with a pair of home games. In between, there will be 3 home games in 9 weeks.

The Beavers open with a visit from the Nicholls St. Colonels on Sept. 1, and then the Wisconsin Badgers come to town on Sept. 8. It's the first time in 41 years a Big-10 football team has visited Corvallis. It's the first time since 2005 that the Beavers have opened with 2 home games, and the first time since 1998 that Oregon St. has finished with 2 home games.

The bye week follows, before the Beavers start Pac-12 play at UCLA.

The third non-conference game, a trip to Provo to play BYU, is on Oct. 13. Homecoming comes a week later, when Utah comes to town.

The trip to Seattle, to play Washington, a game that will be a return to "The Clink", the Seattle Seahawks' Centurylink Stadium, while the Huskies remodel Husky Stadium, will be Oct. 27.

Oregon St. finishes the season with home games against California on Nov. 17, and then the Civil War, against Oregon, on Nov. 24, which is on Thanksgiving Weekend. Three of the the "Rivalry Games" are on Friday that weekend, including the Apple Cup, as well as the Territorial Cup, and the Rocky Mt. Rumble. Two are earlier in the season, making the "Civil War" the only "Traditional Rivalry" on the last day of the season.

Oregon St. also avoids any weeknight games for another season.

The Pac-12 Championship Game will be Nov. 30, and will again be played at the division champion with the best record.

Here's the complete schedule:

Sept. 1 Nicholls State (non-conference)

Sept. 8 Wisconsin (non-conference)

See the complete conference schedule after the jump.

There will be 44 games on the combination of ESPN's family of networks, Fox Broadcast, and FX, while 34 games are scheduled to air on the Pac-12 Networks.

California will play the first 12 weeks of the year, with no bye, and finish their season on Nov. 17.

The Big Game, the only rivalry game shifted from late in the season, due to the perpetual Notre Dame interference with the conference schedule on the last weekend of the regular season, will be on Oct. 20.
