CORVALLIS — A visit from defending Pac-12 Conference champion Stanford, a Friday night home date with USC and a Reser Stadium showdown with rival Washington highlight a six-game home schedule for the 2013 football season for Oregon State.
The Beavers, coming off a 9-4 campaign and a No. 19 national ranking, open the ’13 slate on Aug. 31 against Football Championship Subdivision power Eastern Washington at home. The University of Hawaii visits Corvallis the following Saturday on Sept. 7 as OSU opens the year with back-to-back home games for the first time since 2005 after the 2012 schedule was modified due to the postponement of the opener against Nicholls State.
The latter half of the schedule features five games, all against 2012 bowl participants. Stanford ventures to Reser Stadium Oct. 28 for Homecoming, followed by a short week as USC visits on Friday, Nov. 1. The 117th Civil War with Oregon is Friday, Nov. 29 in Eugene.
Due to the schedule rotation in the Pac-12, the Beavers will not play UCLA or Arizona during the 2013 or ’14 seasons. The Beavers and Bruins had played eight consecutive years through 2012 while this will be the first time since 1989 the Wildcats are not on the slate. OSU did not play Colorado or USC in 2011 and ’12.
