Arizona-Oregon matchup set for night game on ESPNby Anthony Gimino on Sep. 10, 2012, under Arizona football
The Arizona Wildcats football game at Oregon on Sept. 22 will be televised by ESPN starting at 7:30 p.m., the Pac-12 announced Monday morning.
With UA moving into the AP poll at No. 24 this week, this should be a battle of two ranked teams. Oregon is No. 4.
The game at Autzen Stadium will be the Pac-12 opener for both teams.
Arizona and Oregon are each 2-0, facing lower-division teams this weekend. The Cats take on South Carolina State at Arizona Stadium (7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks) while the Ducks are home vs. Tennessee Tech.
The Arizona-Oregon game probably shouldn’t be boring.
These are two no-huddle, fast-paced teams who run the read-option offense. They both rank in the national top 10 in offense this week, the Ducks checking in at No. 8 (568.5 yards per game) and UA ninth (562.5).
