The Oregon Ducks have completed their 2013 non-conference football schedule with the addition of Nicholls State, The Register Guard has reported.
Nicholls State will visit Autzen Stadium for both schools’ season opener on Aug. 31, 2013. UO and NSU have never met in football.
The Nicholls State Colonels are a member of the Southland Conference in the FCS. They were slated to open at Oregon State this season, but the game was postponed due to Hurricane Isaac and has since been rescheduled for Dec. 1.
After hosting the Colonels, Oregon will travel to Reno to take on the Wolf Pack on Sept. 7. The game is the second in a home-and-home series that began in Eugene in 2011. The Ducks won that game 69-20.
Oregon’s final non-conference game is at home against the Tennessee Volunteers on Sept. 14. This game is also the last of a two-game series. Oregon hammered Tennessee 48-13 in Knoxville in 2010.
Last September, it was announced via Twitter that Oregon head coach Chip Kelly stated Tennessee was going to buy out of the 2013 game at Oregon. The Vols released a statement later in the day that they “…expect to make the trip to Oregon in ’13 unless they (the Ducks) cancel.”
In Pac-12 play, Oregon will host California, Oregon State, and Washington State and travel to Arizona, Colorado, Stanford, and Washington. Sites for games against UCLA and Utah are to be determined.
A slightly less shitty OOC schedule than usual.
They want hammer the Tennessee Volunteers in 2013 though I doubt they beat Tennessee this time around
what the hell
you are extremely high…
If you think Tennessee has a chance of beating the Ducks at home, then you are wrong. Tennessee is 0-15 against ranked opponents as of late.
The ducks shity D will give them no chance against a well balanced SEC team,ALABAMA will kick their ass.
Typical SEC drone. Alabama well balanced? They have a great D and running attack but never a passing attack, maybe b/c Saban doesn’t trust any QB he has had I don’t know but there’s no way you can say they are balanced offensively. They never show balance in play calls to show it.
Oregon’s D is actually really good, especially considering they are on the field twice as long as any other schools D since our offense scores in under two minuets.
Nicholls St played OSU last season, UO this season and Arkansas next season. How are the Ducks penalized for playing a team that loves to play big games against big teams???
