As the Pac-12 Conference gears up to start its football season on Nov. 7, game times for the day were officially announced on Monday.

The conference made headlines earlier this month when it followed through on speculation that it would try to play morning games, as it announced that the USC-Arizona State game on the 7th would kick off at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on FOX (10 a.m. Mountain Time).

As announced Monday, the Utah-Arizona game at Rice-Eccles Stadium will be the second Pac-12 contest of the day, kicking off at 2 p.m. MT (ESPNU). UCLA-Colorado is set for 4 p.m. MT (ESPN2) and Stanford-Oregon for 4:30 (ABC). Washington-Cal (ESPN) and Washington State-Oregon State (FS1) will both kick off at 7:30 to close the day.

Even though the conference has not begun play yet, Oregon is ranked this week No. 14 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, and USC is ranked No. 21.
