Gopher Game Time May Change Saturday

The Pac-12 conference is monitoring the air quality due to the fires in Oregon and they may have to consider alternative start times and maybe a different game day for Minnesota vs. Oregon State, scheduled for a 9 p.m. (Central) kickoff Saturday in Corvallis. The Pac-12 also is watching Nebraska vs. Oregon, scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Central in Eugene, about 45 miles south of Corvallis.

The Gophers are going to play their first regular-season contest in the Pacific time zone since 2012, when they beat UNLV 30-27 in three overtimes. They also played Washington State in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego last December, but they arrived four days ahead of that game.

University Medical officials and conference officials will continue to monitor the situation and make changes as needed
