Saturday’s Oregon State-Oregon game in Reser Stadium will kickoff at 12:30 p.m., the Pac-12 announced Sunday morning.
ABC plans to televise the game.
No. 12 Oregon and No. 23 Oregon State each won this weekend, increasing the stakes for Saturday’s rivalry game. The Ducks beat Utah 20-17, opening the door for a Pac-12 championship game berth should they beat Oregon State. The Ducks have a shot at the title game with a loss to OSU, but the path is a bit more difficult.
Though Oregon State is out of the Pac-12 championship game chase, the game has plenty of meaning for the Beavers. OSU has a shot at a 10-win season, something the Beavers have produced only twice (2000, 2006) in program history.
This is the most significant Oregon-Oregon State game since 2012, when both teams were ranked in the top 20. The Ducks won that game 48-24.
Oregon won last year’s game 24-10 in Eugene. The last time the teams played in Reser Stadium was 2020, when OSU prevailed 41-38.
