It’s not quite prime time, but Coach Prime will be there.
The Pac-12 Conference announced game times and television broadcast information for Week 4 with the Ducks and Buffaloes being a huge game.
Colorado and head coach Deion Sanders will visit Autzen Stadium Sept. 23 with kickoff set for 12:30 pm PST and it will be on ABC.
No one thought this particular contest would have this kind of significance just a year ago. A game like this was doomed to be a 2 pm kickoff on the Pac-12 Network.
But with Sanders coming into Boulder and changing everything within that program, including wins, Colorado is now a big-time player in the conference.
Not to be forgotten, this is the Pac-12 opener for the Ducks as well. It’s not often Oregon will be playing second fiddle to an opponent at Autzen, at least during the week. The only way to not be an afterthought is to win the game, which Oregon will prepare all week to do so.
