BOULDER — The Pac-12 Conference released its revised 2020 schedules on Friday, with the season now set to start on Sept. 26 with Colorado traveling to Eugene to take on Oregon in the new season opener.

The revised schedule differs a bit from what was released in January: the nine Pac-12 opponents announced then remain the same, but CU will travel to Oregon instead of the Ducks coming to Boulder for the first time since 2015.

Oregon State, which had not been on the slate, will also now visit Folsom Field on Nov. 28, with the regular season finale set for Dec. 5 against Washington State.

The traditional league rivalries now appear all throughout the schedule instead of toward the end of the season, with Utah now coming to Colorado in week two on Oct. 3.

Bye weeks are also built in if the pandemic forces the postponement of games to allow for make-up dates. All teams have a bye at some point in weeks four-through-six (Oct. 17-31), with Saturday, Dec. 12 available as well.

The conference's championship game, originally set for Dec. 4, is now penciled in for Dec. 19 and will revert back to the home-hosted model instead of being played in Las Vegas.
