Wildfires might alter Nebraska-Oregon and Minnesota-Oregon State games

Wildfires might alter Nebraska-Oregon and Minnesota-Oregon State games”

The next few days will be very interesting to decide the fate of where and when Nebraska's football game with OR will be played.

According to ESPN, Oregon officials are monitoring the air quality from wildfires in the area ahead of Nebraska's game in Eugene against the Ducks. Riley, a native of Corvallis, hopes to improve to 2-0 as Nebraska's head coach against the Ducks.

"I was talking to my daughter the other day about the fires and the smoke in the (Willamette Valley), so I'm not surprised by it", he said.

Kickoff between Nebraska (1-0) and OR (1-0) at Autzen Stadium in Eugene is set for 3:30 p.m., with a live national television broadcast by FOX.

The Huskers this week head to OR to face an offense that just rolled up 703 yards and 77 points against Southern Utah.

"I don't know anything more than that right now", Riley said. Fleck said. "We've got awesome people in our organization that check in on all of that". At this time, it's not yet known if the air conditions we're seeing now will linger into the weekend.

A Pac-12 news release Tuesday stated that that Oregon and Oregon State officials are "working closely with the relevant regional air protection agency, the Pac-12, and their own medical personnel to monitor and assess the air quality situation ..."

"Based upon information provided by air protection agency, athletic departments and expert health and safety advice of university medical professionals, a decision will be made on whether an event may be postponed or rescheduled if it is too risky to play", the Pac-12 statement reads.
