Pac-12 Networks begins its second season in covering the Pac-12 Conference and will air the Northern Arizona at ARIZONA game on Friday, August 30 as one of its 750 live events to be aired by the Networks during the 2013-14 year. Pac-12 Networks will air 13 of the 22 Pac-12 home football games during the first three weeks of the season, and also has announced it will televise California at Oregon in week five and OREGON at Colorado in week six.
ESPN will carry its first Pac-12 game of the season on Saturday, August 31, when ESPN2 will air Northwestern at CALIFORNIA. ESPN or ABC will culminate the 2013 Pac-12 season when it carries the Pac-12 Championship Game on Saturday, December 7.
"Today's announcement assures Pac-12 fans will once again enjoy the best television coverage of their favorite teams," said Commissioner Larry Scott. "Through Pac-12 Networks, and our partners ESPN and FOX, all 80 Pac-12 home games will be available to passionate Pac-12 fans all across the country."
The television arrangement with ESPN and FOX calls for Pac-12 football to receive full national distribution of each game. ESPN will televise on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or ABC, while FOX will air its games on FOX or FOX Sports 1.
While television selections for the first three weeks of the 2013 season have been made, as well as all Thursday and Friday games throughout the season, all remaining television game selections and start times, starting with week four (Saturday, September 21) and running through the final week of the regular season (Saturday, November 30) will be made 12- or six-days in advance.
Additional non-conference road games will be televised as part of other conference or institution television packages. Those conferences and institutions will release their 2013 television schedule in the coming weeks. In all, every Pac-12 football game is expected to be televised this season.
