Both teams are trying to become bowl-eligible. Washington needs one win while Oregon State needs two wins.

There are just two games on the schedule tonight.

The first one kicks off at 4 pm and features the UCF Knights visiting the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. This game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

This game will likely be a blowout with the 7-2 Knights winning easily. That’s why it’s really the undercard tonight.

The main event tonight may not seem like a big game but it is for fans of the Pac-12. Tonight’s #Pac12AfterDark matchup features the 4-4 Oregon State Beavers hosting the 5-4 Washington Huskies.

It doesn’t seem believable, but the resurgent Beavers are actually sitting in second place in the Pac-12 North, two and a half games behind the first place Oregon Ducks.

Meanwhile, the Huskies sit in fourth place a game and a half behind the Beavers. How’s that for turning the tables?

Obviously, tonight’s game is important to both teams as both teams are looking to become bowl-eligible. Washington is bowl-eligible with a win, while Oregon State needs a win tonight plus one more.

But, when you combine all of that with the amazing Pac-12 officials, it seems like a recipe for mayhem, kind of like those Allstate insurance commercials. I’m envisioning Dean Winters dressed as coaches for both teams, talking about “mayhem like me.”

This game will air on Fox Sports 1 at 7:30 pm PT.


Go Bruins!
