It's a busy Saturday for Oregon football (and futbol) with the Timbers, Ducks and Beavs on the road. It also could be the last 🌞 80° degree day before ☔ rain starts falling and Autumn really rolls in. Want to watch the games on your phone out on the river, or in your backyard with a beer in hand? Perhaps, you want to sit in traffic and listen to the good old AM radio? No matter your preferred game day locale, we got you covered. Check below for all the ways to watch and listen.
Timbers at Real Salt Lake
Time: 6:30pm PST
Online: MLS TV for those in the diaspora ($14.99/mo)
Listen: 750 AM/102.9 FM The Game
With only five matches to go, the Timbers are right at the top of the table, tied in points with Vancouver who holds first due to goal differential. Don't let the lofty heights fool you though, the Timbers have played two more games than the Whitecaps and at this point could easily finish the season at the top of the table or out of playoff contention. Things are just that close in the Western Conference.
The Maestro, Diego Valeri also stands in 2nd place on goals scored this season. He has 17, including one in each of the last seven matches. He scored the winner against NYCFC last week and left the pitch to chants of "MVP." A solid peformance today or even another goal will strengthen his MVP claim.
OSU at Washington State
The Beavers travel to Pullman to take on the #21 Cougars this afternoon, and it's not looking pretty. OSU's only win in pre-conference play was squeaked out against Portland State. Hey, but at this moment they have as good a chance of winning the Pac-12 North as any team. That won't be the case if they get steamrolled by the Cougars' offense. All the more reason to grab a few drinks and enjoy what could be a monumental Beavers upset. Stranger things have happened.
Oregon at Wyoming
Time: 4pm PST
TV: CBS Sports Network
Online: CBS Sports Online
Listen:: 750 AM, 102.9 FM, Sirius 81, XM 81
It is anybody's guess which Ducks team shows up at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie, Wyoming today. Will it be the team that marched out to a commanding lead with six touchdowns against Nebraska, or the one that let the Cornhuskers score at will in the second half, nearly blowing the game? That's the fun of this season, they could start out 5-0, or drop an early game to a Moutain West team that has shown a few flashes of strenght in their first two games. The Ducks are heavy favorites, but Wyoming has more to prove.
