    2016 Schedules




    Colorado football schedule includes a Friday night game (CSU) and a Thursday night game (UCLA)

    From cubuffs.com … The Pac-12 Conference released its schedule for conference football games for the 2016 season late Wednesday, and the University of Colorado will host five league opponents and will also play on two weeknights.

    Colorado will open the season on Friday night, Sept. 2, in Denver against Colorado State in the Rocky Mountain Showdown at Sports Authority Field. The Buffaloes will then have their home opener at Folsom Field against Idaho State on Saturday, Sept. 10, the first-ever meeting between the two schools, although they are only located a little over 400 miles apart.

    CU concludes non-conference play with a trip to the “Big House,” traveling to Ann Arbor to face Michigan on Sept. 17; it of course was the site of one of the great moments in CU history. On Sept. 24, 1994, Colorado won 27-26 on the final play of the game now known as “The Miracle in Michigan.”

    All three non-league games were previously announced.

    The Buffaloes then open conference play on the road, traveling to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Oregon Ducks on Sept. 24. The conference home opener follows on Oct. 1 against Oregon State. CU then alternates home and road games the remainder of the month of October, traveling to Southern California (Oct. 8), hosting Arizona State (Oct. 15) and then visiting Stanford (Oct. 22).

    After a bye on Saturday, Oct. 29, CU will have three of its final four games at home, starting with UCLA on Thursday night, Nov. 3. Colorado’s final road game is set for Nov. 12 at Arizona, with the Buffs then closing out the regular season at home on consecutive Saturdays against Washington State (Nov. 19) and Utah (Nov. 26).

    Television game selections and start times for the first three weeks of the season will be known by the end of June, with all remaining games from Sept. 24 through the final week of the regular season to be made 12- or six-days in advance per contractual agreements with the Pac-12’s television partners, ESPN, FOX and the Pac-12 Networks.

    2016 Pac-12 Schedule released

    From the Pac-12 … The Pac-12 Conference announced today its 2016 football schedule that pairs a competitive nine-game Conference schedule with a non-conference slate that includes four contests against teams currently ranked in the CFP Top 15 – No. 2 Alabama, No. 8 Notre Dame (2), and No. 14 Michigan. In all, more than a third of the Pac-12’s non-conference schedule pits the league against a Power 5 conference opponent, as well as independents Notre Dame and BYU.

    “Not only is the nine-game Conference schedule demanding for each of our teams, but they continue to test themselves with an array of impressive non-conference opponents too,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “These are the types of big-time matchups Pac-12 fans will enjoy watching next season.”

    In addition, traditional rivalry games will be played over the last two weeks of the season, followed by the Pac-12 Football Championship Game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Friday, December 2.

    The 2016 season is scheduled to get under way on Saturday, August 27, as CALIFORNIA travels to Sydney, Australia to take on Hawai’i. While California received a waiver from the NCAA to begin the season a week early, the actual season-opening games for the rest of the Conference will take place Thursday, September 1 through Saturday, September 3 where a couple of Saturday showdowns with the SEC loom when UCLA visits Texas A&M and USC meets Alabama at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

    In a rematch of the Pac-12 Football Championship Game, USC opens up league play at STANFORD during the third week of the season. That weekend also features several marquee road non-conference contests as UCLA travels to BYU, while COLORADO visits Michigan and OREGON heads to Nebraska in a couple of Big Ten matchups.

    Every football game played at Pac-12 sites will be televised. A combination of the ESPN channels, ABC, FOX and FOX Sports 1 will broadcast 44 games nationally and Pac-12 Networks will offer 35 games to national and international audiences. Exact broadcast schedules will be determined at a later date.

    The 2016 Conference schedule features five games on four Thursday night dates that includes three key league matchups between CALIFORNIA at USC on October 27, UCLA at COLORADO on November 3, and UTAH at ARIZONA STATE on November 10. In addition, the schedule’s seven games on five Friday dates is highlighted by a pair of Friday, November 25 rivalry games featuring ARIZONA STATE at ARIZONA in the Territorial Cup and WASHINGTON at WASHINGTON STATE in the Apple Cup.

    The decision was made to schedule the cross-division UCLA at CALIFORNIA game on the final week of the 2016 season in keeping with the terms of scheduling commitments approved by the Pac-12 Directors of Athletics to maintain the late-season games between Stanford/USC and Notre Dame.
