Ducks release 2014 football schedule

EUGENE, Ore. -- Are you already missing Ducks football?

You have a while to wait, but Oregon has released it's 2014 schedule.

The games will include meetings with Arizona, Colorado, Stanford and Washington, as well as a visit from Rose Bowl champion Michigan State.

The Ducks' 12-game regular-season schedule includes home games against both opponents that handed Oregon losses during its 2013 season - Arizona and Stanford - with it concluding 2013 with an 11-2 record and a 30-7 Alamo Bowl win over Texas.

Oregon and Michigan State will face one another for the first time in 15 years and the first time in Autzen Stadium since 1998.

The date of the contest has been moved ahead one week earlier than was previously announced to accommodate a national television broadcast as well as insure the game would not be a night game. The Ducks and Spartans will kick off on Sept. 6 while the Oregon-Wyoming game will move to Sept. 13.

Michigan State is expected to be one of the highest-ranked non-conference opponents to travel to Eugene in recent memory. Michigan was ranked third in the country at the time of its 2003 visit while BYU was No. 4 in the country when it played in Autzen Stadium in 1990.
