College football season has only been over for a few days, but already fans are marking their calendars for next season.

The Pac-12 on Thursday released the 2013 football schedule.

For the Ducks, key games include a visit from SEC school Tennessee on Sept. 14, a trip to play defending Pac-12 champion Stanford on Nov. 7 and the Beavers playing at Autzen on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

In addition to the Civil War game, the Beavers will also host USC on a Friday night. OSU will host Stanford on October 26 for their homecoming game.

Thanks to Pac-12 scheduling limitations, the Beavers will not have to play UCLA or Arizona in 2013, both teams from the conference’s south division.

Oregon will avoid playing USC and Arizona State.
