Pac-12 football starts with morning game on Nov. 7

Arizona State to play at USC with 9 a.m. kickoff to get things going


The Pac-12 football season will begin with a morning start on Nov. 7 — Arizona State at Southern California.

The conference schedule released Saturday includes eight Friday games, at least one every week after the first weekend of the season. Each Pac-12 team has six opponents scheduled, five from its division and from across the conference.

The Nov. 7 opener kicks off at 9 a.m. local time. The conference has been toying with morning starts to boost nationwide exposure. TV partner Fox has emphasized its noon Eastern time window, trying to put high-profile games in that spot. Arizona State and USC will be Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” game, with its pregame show coming from the Los Angeles Coliseum

The Pac-12 championship game will match division winners and be played Dec. 18. The other teams in the conference will also play a cross-division game that weekend for a total of seven games each.

No. 14 Oregon will open its season at home on Nov. 7 at Stanford.

Utah at UCLA is the first Friday game on Nov 13.

Other Friday games include, UCLA at Oregon on Nov. 20; Washington State at Washington, and Oregon State at Oregon on Nov. 27; and Washington State at USC on Dec. 4.

Kickoff times for the Northwest Pac-12 teams have yet to be announced.
