Oregon, Tennessee Reportedly Cancel 2013 Game In Autzen Stadium

Tennessee and Oregon were scheduled to play in 2013, but your HD television will reportedly be spared a further orange and neon green clash.

The Tennessee Volunteers reportedly won't be repaying the Oregon Ducks with a home game, canceling the scheduled 2013 date between the two teams. This news doesn't make the Vols look all that mighty, especially after they bought out a 2011-12 series with the North Carolina Tar Heels, but some are speculating (vague!) the reported move could be due to SEC realignment. 

The move would leave the Nevada Wolf Pack as the only out-of-conference opponent on the Ducks' 2013 schedule, while Tennessee would still be set to play Western Kentucky and South Alabama. That's at least as good as a trip to Eugene, you guys!

This would be the second time in the past calendar year a SEC school has removed the Ducks from its schedule. Last year, new Georgia Bulldogs athletic director Greg McGarity moved to Floridify UGA's out-of-conference slate.

Last year, the Ducks let UT reach a 13-3 lead and a 13-13 mark at half time. Oregon then barreled to a 48-13 final score, riding superior depth and an overwhelming offense.
