The television schedule for Halloween week is being pieced together, and Oregon State's game at Utah won't be completely a Halloween night event, though it will be by the time the game is over. The Beavers and Utes will be kickoff shortly after 5 PM MDT, which is 4 PM PDT, for fans back in Corvallis.

That puts the game on the leading edge of prime time in the east, and in the ultimate time slot for college football, both for fans on scene and on television.

Except the game has been relegated to the Pac-12 Network, despite involving 3rd ranked Utah, mostly due to Oregon State's noncompetitive efforts the last 2 outings, and 3 straight lopsided loses, and won't be available to many viewers both inside and outside the conference footprint.

The Beavers do avoid being on the field at midnight in Salt Lake City, as they were in their last trip 2 years ago, but it will still be a #Pac-12AfterDark encounter.
