The Pac-12 unveiled its 2021 football schedule on Tuesday.

Each Pac-12 team has 12 games on 13 playing weekends, nine of which are conference games, including five contests against opponents from the same division.

Schools will open play on Saturday, Aug. 28, when UCLA hosts Hawaii before the full slate kicks off with all 12 teams playing the following week.

Conference play will begin when Stanford takes on USC on Sept. 11. The Trojans will battle Washington State the following week. The remaining programs play other Pac-12 opponents on Sept. 25.

The Pac-12 Football Championship Game will be changing venues in 2021, taking place for the first time at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Dec. 3.

The first two weeks of the regular season will feature non-conference matchups against Power Five opponents, including UCLA vs. LSU (Sept. 4), Oregon at Ohio State (Sept. 11), Washington at Michigan (Sept. 11), and Colorado vs. Texas A&M (Sept. 11). Stanford will once again close its campaign against Notre Dame on Nov. 27.

In a 2020 season that was shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ducks defeated USC to win the conference crown.
