The TV schedule is now set for November 15, and Oregon St.'s home game against Arizona St. will be the Beavers' latest start yet this season, with kickoff against the Darkness Devils (No one from Beaver Nation has spotted a Sun Devil in the daylight since 2010) just after 7:45 PM PST. It the late game in ESPN's Saturday schedule.

It's the latest start in terms of time at the game start since last year's game at Utah, which started after 8 PM locally in Salt Lake City. It's also the latest start time ever in Corvallis, and the latest "local" start for TV viewing fans since the 8 PM game at UNLV in 2009.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott has said the conference is endeavoring to balance the distribution of night games, but this will be the 6th out of 10 this season, and 12th in the last 20 regular season games that the Beavers have played at night. 6 is the most night games so far of any team in the Pac-12 North, with Oregon right behind, with 5. Calirofnia and Washington St. have both had 4, while Washington has only had 2, and Stanford just 1.

There are only 3 Pac-12 games that Saturday, with USC hosting California on Thursday night, at 6 PM in the LA Coliseum, with ESPN on hand for the coverage.

Oregon, UCLA, Colorado, and Washington St. all have the weekend off.

Saturday in the Pac-12 starts with Washington at Arizona, at 1:30 PM AST (12:30 PM PST), and FOX has the coverage.

The other game is the only one relegated to the Pac-12 Channel, instead of having full national distribution, and has an odd-ball 3 PM PDT start, before any of the after-lunch games finish, as Utah visits Stanford.
