The Ducks open Pac-12 play at Arizona Stadium, the site of some of their most exhilarating and excruciating road contests in recent years. More so than most other away venues, Oregon will have other things to deal with than just the weather, but that could be a factor as well, so here's Oregon AMS Vice President Bobby Corser with the Duckcast:
Friday, Sept. 23, 2 p.m. PT
"The Oregon Ducks head south for the conference opener and its going to be hot. Temperatures will be in the upper 90s Saturday afternoon. As the evening progresses, it will cool down. At kickoff, I expect temps in the upper 80s. It will be a beautiful day in the Tucson area. If you're lucky enough to be heading to the game, make sure you wear yellow and cheer on the Ducks in hostile territory. Let's come back to Autzen Stadium at the top of the Pac-12 Standings!"
