Tuesday, the Pac-12 issued a statement addressing the air quality issues stemming from the fires and hot temperatures over Labor Day Weekend. It also stated the conference was still deciding about whether or not to adjust Nebraska’s game against Oregon and Minnesota’s contest versus Oregon State in Corvallis, Ore.
The Ducks, traveled an hour west for practice Tuesday but returned to Eugene for Wednesday’s workout, a promising sign that Saturday’s contest won’t be moved.
Oregon State, meanwhile, seems to be in a similar situation for their home game this weekend.
