Pac-12 announces Oregon will face Arizona at 7:30 pm on ESPN in two weeks

The Ducks return to the desert in Tucson since its last trip in 2013

The Pac-12 announced on Monday afternoon that Oregon and Arizona would be the next rendition of the famed #Pac12AfterDark special. The teams will kickoff at 7:30 pm on Saturday, October 27 in a game that will be seen on ESPN.

The Ducks are on a two-game winning streak against the Wildcats. Oregon defeated Arizona last year when quarterback Justin Herbert returned from a shoulder injury to lead the Ducks to a 48-28 win. Former running back Royce Freeman ran for 135 yards and four scores in the game.

Prior to that, the last meeting between the teams came in 2014 when the both teams met in the inaugural Pac-12 championship. Oregon won 51-13 en route to a Rose Bowl victory and appearance in the national championship game.

The last time the Ducks traveled down to Tucson, Ariz. was in 2013 when they were dismantled 42-16, a loss that derailed their chances at a New Year's Day bowl game.

The Wildcats (3-4, 2-2 Pac-12) are coming off a 42-10 loss to Utah and play at UCLA this weekend while Oregon (5-1, 2-1 Pac-12) takes on No. 25 Washington State (5-1, 2-1 Pac-12) in Pullman on Saturday with ESPN's College GameDay in attendance.
