Well Oregon will enter the B1G this season with some added schedule drama. It was just announced two of Oregon’s games will be on Friday night in Fox’s primetime window. This gives Oregon a chance at adding an extra day of rest following each game that week.

More importantly this gives Oregon a chance to shine on a national stage. While Friday night games are unique, these two games will likely be the biggest games on TV that night. By a significant margin. If Oregon wants more voters to see how they look, this is their chance.

Oregon will host Michigan State on October 4 in Autzen stadium. That is the first game set to broadcast on Friday night this season. As most know, the Spartans have an old friend leading the team now, former Oregon State head coach Jonathan Smith.

Oregon leads that series 4-3 with the last game being a 7-6 win in the Redbox bowl at Levi’s stadium.

The second game is the October 18 game at Purdue for Oregon. That one presents some different challenges with it being on the road for the Ducks and coming off a huge game 6 days earlier with Ohio State. This will be a chance for Oregon to once again shine on a national stage.

Oregon and Purdue have played each other three times. Oregon leads the series 2-1. The last meeting was in 2009 in Eugene.
