No. 18 Colorado will kick off against No. 13 Oregon at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 23, the school and Pac-12 Conference announced Monday. The game, which is in Eugene, Ore., will be televised nationally by ABC — marking the fourth consecutive week that CU will play on national TV.
The Buffaloes (2-0) are coming off a statement win in their home opener against Nebraska. Under new coach Deion Sanders, CU has already doubled its win total from last year, when it finished 1-11. The Ducks (2-0) and their Heisman hopeful quarterback Bo Nix beat Texas Tech on the road 38-30 on Saturday.
The Buffs will host rival Colorado State at 8 p.m. Saturday (ESPN) at Folsom Field before turning their attention to the Pac-12 slate. Colorado’s schedule includes six opponents that are currently ranked in the AP Top 25: Oregon, No. 5 USC (Sept. 30), No. 24 UCLA, No. 16 Oregon State (Nov. 4), No. 23 Washington State and No. 12 Utah (Nov. 25).
