As long expected, the USC Trojans and the Oregon Ducks will be the big matchup this autumn for the Pac-12, and it's getting prime billing. Primetime, on FOX, just an hour before the LSU-Alabama game. Obviously this time slot is inconvenient for college football watchers (channel flicking will be at a premium), but this will be the Pac-12's showcase this year, and it makes sense to give the telecast top billing in the night slot.
Here is the Pac-12 schedule for the first week of November.
Friday, November 2nd
Washington at California, 6 PM PT, 9 PM ET, ESPN2: Both the Bears and the Huskies will be trying to keep bowl hopes alive as they try to get up to six wins.
Saturday, November 3rd
Stanford at Colorado, 11 AM PT, 2 PM ET, F/X: The Cardinal will try to stay on track for a potential Pac-12 North bid as they will aim to take down the hapless Buffs.
Washington State at Utah, noon PT, 3 PM ET, Pac-12 Networks: Both of these teams would just like to win a game or two in conference play. Both teams are currently a combined 0-8.
