Game times announced for weeks 1-3

Oregon Football will enter a new realm in 2024 and become part of the Big Ten Conference. This means that the team will be featured on different channels and possibly different platforms. A number of playing times for next season have already been announced.

Last week, FOX announced that the game against Michigan State and the game at Purdue had been moved to Friday evening games. Michigan State will be played on Friday, October 4 with a 6:00 PM Pacific Time kickoff. The game at Purdue will be played on Friday, October 18 with a 5:00 PM Pacific Time kickoff.

Several other games were announced by the Big Ten on Thursday. Fans now know the times for potentially six games this season. To start the season, the Ducks will host Idaho on Aug. 31 for a 4:30 PM kickoff on Big Ten Network.

The following week, Oregon will host the Boise State Broncos in a game that has had a colorful history in the past. The Ducks and Broncos play on Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, at 7 p.m.

One of the previously announced games was the game against Oregon State, which will take place on September 14 at 12:30 PM on FOX. Oregon will also host Illinois on Oct. 26, with what appears to be a number of timing options to be determined at a later date. The Ducks and Illini meet at 12:30/1 p.m. or 4:30 p.m.

Other games, including UCLA, Ohio State, Michigan, Maryland, Wisconsin and the final home game against Washington, have yet to be announced.

I expect the game against Ohio State to be part of the new Big Ten package with CBS, but a time and channel for one of the biggest games of the season is still being worked out.

As we approach June, the Ducks are on break until fall camp, which starts in early July. Oregon opens the 2024 season in the Big Ten against non-conference foe Idaho for a 4:30 PM kickoff on Big Ten Network on August 31.
