Pac-12 Football Schedule: Texas-UCLA, Washington-Nebraska Top Conference Schedule

The UCLA Bruins and the Washington Huskies both play Top 25 teams. The Bruins against Texas and the Huskies against Nebraska.

The Pac-12 football schedule kicks off on Saturday with the Rocky Mountain Showdown between the Colorado St. Rams and the Colorado Buffaloes. The 11:30 a.m. MT will whet out appetites for two mid-afternoon matchups that feature the No. 23 Texas Longhorns against the UCLA Bruins and the Washington Huskies visiting the No. 10 Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Colorado St. Rams (2-0) vs. Colorado Buffaloes (0-2), 11:30 a.m. MT, ROOT, at Mile High - Please visit our Rocky Mountain Showdown StoryStream for more coverage on this game.

No. 23 Texas (2-0) vs. UCLA Bruins (1-1), 1:30 p.m. MT, ABC/ESPN/ESPN3 - The Longhorns barely escaped with the 17-16 victory over the BYU Cougars and now have quarterback issues. Garrett Gilbert was demoted and Case McCoy and David Ash are co-starters. UCLA bounced back with a victory over San Jose State, but Kevin Prince and Richard Brehaut are also in a quarterback situation.

Washington Huskies (2-0) vs. No. 11 Nebraska Cornhuskers (2-0), 1:30 p.m. MT, ABC/ESPN/ESPN3 - The Huskies are coming off two close victories, the most recent over the Hawaii Warriors. Keith Price threw for 315 yards and four touchdown passes. They'll face the toughest test on their first half schedule with a visit to Nebraska.

Missouri State Bears (0-2) vs. No. 12 Oregon Ducks (1-1), 1:30 p.n. MT - This should be an easy game for Darron Thomas to compile his stats. He threw six touchdown passes last week against Nevada.

Presbyterian Blue Hose (1-1) vs. California Golden Bears (2-0), 3:30 p.m. MT - Points if you know where Presbyterian is located.

Washington St. Cougars vs. San Diego St. Aztecs, 4:30 p.m. MT - The Cougars beat up on Idaho State and UNLV to open the season. Can Marshall Lobbestael have another five-touchdown game?

No. 22 Arizona St. Sun Devils vs. Illinois Fighting Illini (2-0), 5:00 p.m. MT, Big Ten Network - Brock Osweiler and the Sun Devils needed overtime to defeat the Missouri Tigers last week. Illinois beat cupcakes Arkansas State and South Dakota State. The season gets serious for them now.

Syracuse Orange (2-0) vs. USC Trojans (2-0), 6:00 p.m. MT, FX - Syracuse beat Wake Forest in overtime and then edged Rhode Island last week. They'll face a tougher test with the Trojans, but USC hasn't lit up the board with a two-point victory over Minnesota and a nine-point win over Utah.

Utah Utes (1-1) vs. BYU Cougars (1-1), 7:15 p.m. MT, ESPN2/ESPN3 - A former Mountain West Conference matchup is now a Pac-12-Independent game.

No. 6 Stanford Cardinal vs. Arizona Wildcats, 8:45 p.m. MT, ESPN/ESPN3 - The Cardinal has Andrew Luck at quarterback, but the Wildcats receiver Juron Criner might be out as he recovers from an appendectomy.
