The Ducks and Beavers will play Oct. 17 in Corvallis, if the Pac-12 actually decides to stage games amid the COVID-19 pandemic

PMG FILE PHOTO: JAIME VALDEZ - CJ Verdell and the Oregon Ducks have a 2020 football schedule, but will it be played?Nonleague games have been scrubbed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Pac-12 has moved ahead with a 10-game conference-only schedule for its football teams.

The defending champion Oregon Ducks are facing opponents originally on their 2020 conference slate, and have added Utah as the 10th opponent.

Oregon State has added Colorado.

The season is tentatively scheduled to start Sept. 26. The Oregon-Oregon State game — no longer known by the schools as the "Civil War" — has been scheduled for the fourth game, Oct. 17 at Corvallis.

Now, it remains to be seen whether the Pac-12 will actually stage games because of the ever-changing pandemic and government restrictions, health of players and staff and school decisions on whether to be open to students. And, we assume there won't be fans allowed in stadiums.

Said Rob Mullens, Oregon's director of athletics: "The 2020 football schedule released (Friday) is built to maximize flexibility, and as more information becomes available about all of our 2020 fall sports, we will share it with our fans."

Added Scott Barnes, OSU's director of athletics: "We have built a scheduling model that is flexible but (Friday's) announcement is not a guarantee that these games will be played. As has been the case, we will continue to look to the local health authorities to guide our decisions on all practices and competitions."
