According to a media release from the University of Oregon the formation of the Pac-12 Network, along with new television contracts that go into effect this year with ESPN and FOX, will allow for the telecast of every football game for all Pac-12 Conference schools, with the Pac-12 Network to air 15 games in the first three weeks of the 2012 season.

The Pac-12 Networks will kick-off its 35-game football schedule with six games during the opening week (August 30-September 1), including two on Thursday, one on Friday and three more on Saturday.

Arizona, Cal, Oregon and Stanford each have two Pac-12 Network appearances during the first three weeks of the season, while ASU, Colorado, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State have one. USC makes its debut on the networks the following week.

The Pac-12 Networks launch August 15 and will consist of one national and six regional networks devoted solely to the Pac-12. In addition to the hundreds of live televised Pac-12 sporting events, Pac-12 Networks subscribers will have access to their carrier's TV Everywhere platform, providing access to all Pac-12 Networks programming on any device through their broadband service.

Pac-12 Network programming will appear nationally on Comcast, with negotiations ongoing for satellite providers (DIRECTV and Dish Network) to air the programming.
