The Big Ten may be swearing off scheduling cupcakes, but at least one Pac-12 school will continue gorging itself on the delectable football treats for the foreseeable future.
Oregon announced Thursday that it has scheduled three games with opponents from the FCS level — South Dakota on Aug. 30, 2014: UC Davis on Sept. 3, 2016: and Southern Utah on Sept. 2, 2017. Obviously, all three games will be played in Autzen Stadium.
The South Dakota game completes the Ducks’ 2014 non-conference slate. It’s 2015 three-game slate is also complete.
Oregon had previously scheduled games against FCS programs Nicholls State (2013) and Eastern Washington (2015).
It’s not all creampuffs for the Ducks, though, as UO has games scheduled against Tennessee (2013), Michigan State (2014 and 2015), Virginia (2016), Texas A&M (2018 and 2019) and Ohio State (2020 and 2021). The Ducks are on the hunt for a marquee game in 2017, possibly at a neutral site in a one-off-type deal.
