High rankings come with prime television slots and the Ducks currently have both.
Oregon will face Stanford Oct. 2 in its first conference road game and the Pac-12 Conference has announced the game will be at 12:30 on ABC national television.
The Ducks are currently ranked No. 4 in the USA TODAY Coaches poll and No. 3 in the Associated Press poll. The Cardinal are currently 2-1 and have rebounded nicely after a disappointing loss at Kansas State to open up the season. Stanford then managed to beat up on USC and Vanderbilt.
Oregon opens up its conference season this week with a home game against Arizona, losers of 15 straight games. Stanford has a huge matchup with UCLA on Saturday.
