Spring has arrived in Eugene, which means Oregon track & field has returned to Hayward Field. Today, the Ducks will open their home schedule with the Pepsi Invitational against USC, Washington and Penn State this afternoon at Hayward Field.
The meet will be televised on the Pac-12 Network beginning at 1:00 pm until its conclusion at 3:30 pm. The first televised event will be the 4x100 while the day will conclude with the 4x400 at 3:20 pm.
Based on the rest of the schedule, this will likely be the only time we see all of Oregon's top athletes together at the same meet at Hayward Field. Next week, the Ducks will split between the Mt. SAC Relays and the Oregon Relays. Next month, the Oregon Twilight takes place the day before the start of the Pac-12 Multis Championships in Seattle.
Today's meet should be a good one with almost all of the teams ranked. The Oregon men are ranked No. 2 while the women are No. 6 in the nation. The USC women are No. 2 while the men are ranked No. 13, and the Penn State men's team is ranked No. 17.
