No other in-state team will be featured on Friday Night by ESPN, and the game between Oregon and UCLA will be the first of ESPN’s Friday Night broadcasts.
The game is slated to be aired on ESPN and will kick off two games in which fans see Oregon on Friday Night on ESPN.
Since 2000, however, UCLA is just 3-12 against Oregon, including 0-3 against then-Oregon coach, now UCLA head coach Chip Kelly.
In fact, Oregon’s biggest win ever against UCLA came with Kelly as the head coach, a 60-13 shellacking in 2010.
This game, in late November, will be only Week 3 of the Pac-12 season.
