The Pac-12 Conference released its 2014 football schedule Thursday that features a nine-game conference schedule and 13 non-conference games against teams that played in a bowl game in the last month.

Among the highlights on the schedule are five games against Big Ten opponents, including Rose Bowl champion Michigan State at Oregon. Three Pac-12 schools will play Notre Dame, and UCLA will meet Texas.

The season begins with three games on Thursday, Aug. 28, as Arizona State hosts Weber State, Utah hosts Idaho State, and Washington State hosts Rutgers in Seattle.

The second week of the season will feature Oregon hosting Rose Bowl champion Michigan State, while USC visits Stanford to open Conference play.

Every football game played at Pac-12 sites will be televised. A combination of the ESPN channels, ABC, FOX and FOX Sports 1 will broadcast 44 games nationally and Pac-12 Networks will offer 35 games to a national audience. Exact broadcast schedules will be determined at a later date.

The 2014 Conference schedule features four Thursday night dates that includes matchups between UCLA at Arizona State on Sept. 25, Arizona at Oregon on Oct. 2, Utah at Oregon State on Oct. 16, and California at USC on Nov. 13.

In addition, the schedule’s four games on three Friday dates feature Washington State at Stanford on Oct. 10, Oregon at California on Oct. 24, Stanford at UCLA and Arizona State at Arizona in the Territorial Cup the day after Thanksgiving on Friday, Nov. 28.

The Pac-12 Football Championship Game will once again be played on the home field of the team with the best overall Conference record. For the third time in four years, the game will be played on a Friday and will be televised by FOX.
