Oregon’s season hits a critical juncture as a soft early schedule – with only one true road game among its first 15 contests – turns tough with a Civil War rivalry game at improved Oregon State before the Ducks visit No. 3 Arizona State and No. 17 Arizona.

Colorado opened the season with six consecutive wins, but has lost six of its last eight games, including three in a row. The Buffaloes return to Boulder brings visits from the Pac-12’s only two ranked teams this week in Arizona State and Arizona.
