The Sept. 22 North Division showdown at Autzen will begin at 5 p.m. on ABC
The Ducks will find out if they’re ready for prime-time television on Sept. 22.
No. 20 Oregon’s Pac-12 opener against No. 9 Stanford at Autzen Stadium will begin at 5 p.m. on ABC.
Mario Cristobal’s squad is off to a 2-0 start following blowout wins over Bowling Green and Portland State by a combined score of 120-38.
The Ducks opened as a 41-point favorite over San Jose for this Saturday’s nonconference finale at Autzen (2 p.m., Pac-12 Networks).
“Our tests have to come every day in practice and we have a test coming up this week as well in San Jose State,” Cristobal said after Oregon’s 62-14 win over Portland State. “But we need to test ourselves and we do. We go good on good every single day.”
The Cardinal, which hosts UC Davis this Saturday, is one of the toughest tests on the Ducks’ schedule. Stanford (2-0 overall, 1-0 Pac-12) beat South Division favorite USC last week.
