Oregon Ducks Football 2012 Schedule: The Where and When for the Ducks

1 of 13

    As the long wait for the season to begin comes to a close, college football fans around the nation are becoming more and more anxious by the day.

    For Duck fans, the long wait since being in Autzen Stadium and seeing the Ducks beat UCLA is coming to an end, and before you know it, the stands will be packed for the start of this season.

    With the 2012 season set, the Ducks will be attempting to defend their three straight conference titles, but they understand that this may be the toughest one yet. 

    Before the season begins, here is a look at the 2012 schedule and the where, when and what happened last year for the Ducks.

Week 1: vs. Arkansas State

2 of 13

    When: September 1

    Time: 10:30 p.m. ET

    Where: at Autzen Stadium 

    Television: ESPN

    2011 Result: NA

    2012 Preview: Oregon opens the season against Arkansas State, and it should provide the new quarterback a chance to ease into the schedule. While the Arkansas State offense could put up some points, the Ducks defense has the speed and skill to have this game wrapped up by halftime.

Week 2: vs. Fresno State

3 of 13

    When: September 8

    Time: 6:30 p.m. ET

    Where: at Autzen Stadium 

    Television: TBA 

    2011 Result: NA

    2012 Preview: After an opening week game against Arkansas State, the Ducks have it easy again as they face Fresno State at home. Hopefully by now the Oregon offense is clicking but even if it isn't, Fresno State is still a team in transition.

Week 3: vs. Tennessee Tech

4 of 13

    When: September 15

    Time: 3 p.m. ET

    Where: at Autzen Stadium

    2011 Result: NA

    2012 Preview: Tennessee Tech is the third straight team to come to Autzen Stadium, and it will be by far the easiest game the Ducks play. This game should allow the team to be fully prepared for the opening of the conference schedule.

    2011 Result: Oregon, 45-2

    2012 Preview: Colorado is a team that is still coming into its own in the Pac-12 and is struggling along the way. The Buffaloes will hopefully become competitive over the next couple of years, but this will be a blowout for the Ducks.

Week 9: at USC

10 of 13

    When: November 3

    Where: at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum 

    Television: ESPN 

    2011 Result: USC 38-35

    2011 Result: Oregon, 53-30

    2012 Preview: For the past two years Oregon has turned away Stanford with Andrew Luck. This year, the star quarterback is not there and the Ducks are home. This should be a nice welcome home after the two-week road trip.

    2012 Preview: For the past four years, the Ducks have dominated the Civil War. This year the Ducks head on the road and as long as they play up to their potential, the Beavers do not have the talent to end the winning streak.
