Two nationally televised broadcasts on Fox Sports 1 will litter the first three games of the Oregon State Beavers 2021 football season, with the team’s contests against both Big Ten adversary Purdue and Mountain West foe Hawai’i earning a slot on the broadcast company’s main sports channel.
Oregon State’s third non-conference game against Idaho will be shown on the Pac-12 Networks.
September 4th - at Purdue (4:00 PM PT, Fox Sports 1)
September 11th - Hawai’i (8:00 PM PT, Fox Sports 1)
September 18th - Idaho (12:30 PM PT, Pac-12 Networks)
The revealing of this information also comes with start times for the games as the Beavers will travel to West Lafayette to meet the Boilermakers on September 4th for a 4:00 PM PT kick-off. They’ll host Hawai’i on September 11th at 8:00 PM PT and welcome Idaho on September 18th for a 12:30 PM PT clash.
While game times for other contests have yet to be revealed, Oregon State begins Pac-12 play in brutal fashion after those meetings, with a trip to USC, a home match-up against a presumably ranked Washington squad and then a trip to Pullman to meet Washington State. Then, a one-week bye will give them extra time to prepare for an always tough Utah team and back-to-back road games against California and Colorado.
The Beavers will then finished out the regular season against Stanford, Arizona State and on the road at Oregon.
Oregon State is coming off a 2-5 mark in Jonathan Smith’s third year on campus and will be hoping to return to the 2019 form, where they sat on the verge of bowl eligibility for most of the season.
