Oregon football is getting some future scheduling MWCtion* going on with Utah State during the sport’s forced sabbatical.
Both the UO and USU football programs announced Tuesday an agreement on a future series between the schools. The Ducks will host a pair of games at Autzen Stadium: Sept. 18, 2027, and Sept. 15, 2029. The Aggies will entertain the Ducks Sept. 16, 2028, at Maverik Stadium in Logan.
The Pac-12 and Mountain West schools have met four times previously. The former has won all four meetings.

From the Oregon release announcing the Utah State series, on the upcoming slate of games:
The addition of the series with Utah State brings the total of non-conference games Oregon has scheduled from 2021-2030 to 29 contests against 17 different opponents. The Ducks open their 2020 season with three consecutive home games against defending FCS national champion North Dakota State (16-0), defending Big Ten champion Ohio State (13-1) and Mountain West runner-up Hawaii (10-5), who combined to go 39-6 in 2019.
Among those future non-conference matchups alluded to above are Georgia (2022), Boise State (2024, 2025, 2026), Oklahoma State (2025, 2026), Baylor (2027, 2028) and Michigan State (2029, 2030). Oh, and another game against Ohio State in 2021.
