Oregon State is finally getting some relief from the #Pac-12LongAfterDark curse that was seemingly transferred to Stanford and Colorado this season, and will play their 3 game in 5 contests in the daylight on Saturday, Nov. 7, when the Beavers host the UCLA Bruins for Dad's Day, and kickoff will be shortly after 1:30 PM PST.
The down side is it will be the 4th game in a row that's been banished to the Pac-12 Network's limited distribution, but that's the price you pay for putting a struggling team on the field instead of a contender.
The Buffs and Cardinal also get some relief from the late night scheduling, as their game is slotted for 11 AM MST, which will be 10 AM PST and body clock time for the Stanford players. And we all recall how much of a difference an early morning game at Northwestern made compared with how the Cardinal have played when they were actually awake all season.
It set the stage for an afternoon time slot for OSU & UCLA, though the Pac-12's off-kilter start times that don't align with any other games in the country will further diminish the audience already minimized by the limit distribution of the conference tv package.
Fans commuting and tailgating will love it though! And still get home in time to watch the 2 conference evening games.
