The Ducks' home games vs. Stanford (Sept. 2) and Oklahoma (Sept. 16) previously had been selected to appear regionally on ABC Sports, while road games at Fresno State (Sept. 9) and California (Oct. 7) will air nationally on ESPN2 and ABC/ESPN, respectively.
Oregon's game in Berkeley, Calif., will be available to a nationwide audience as part of ABC's new prime time Saturday Night College Football package. Kickoff for that game is 5 p.m. (PDT) and will be televised by either ABC or ESPN.
That Oregon-Oregon State game would mark the first time the Civil War has not been played on a Saturday in 79 years and the latest the two teams have met in the past four seasons. The Ducks and Beavers squared off on Dec. 1 during Oregon's Fiesta Bowl season in 2001.
This year's contest was moved to Thanksgiving weekend as a result of the NCAA allowing Division I teams to expand the regular season by playing a 12th game. The two intrastate rivals are scheduled to meet on that holiday weekend every year through at least 2011.
As of now, all six of Oregon's home games are slated to kickoff at 12:30 p.m. However, any of the Ducks' final four home games -- vs. UCLA (Oct. 14), Portland State (Oct. 28), Washington (Nov. 4) and Arizona (Nov. 18) -- as well as road games at Arizona State (Sept. 30) and Washington State (Oct. 21) could be shifted to later times that day to accommodate live television broadcasts. Start times for those six games can be altered between six and 12 days before kickoff in accordance to TV contracts with the Pacific-10 Conference.
