The Pac-12 Will Give You New Ways to Watch College Sports

Posted By on Tue, May 3, 2011 at 4:00 PM

To be honest, the fewer occasions that I'm forced to watch Oregon State football games on Fox Sports Arizona, the better:

The conference’s football games will be shown on ABC and Fox — a combined five will be in prime time each season — and on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and Fx. Basketball will be shown on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and Fox Sports Net. ESPN will also carry a package of about 15 Olympic sports.

ESPN and Fox will also rotate the conference’s annual football championship game, while the basketball tournament will alternate between the ESPN networks and Fox and Fx.

The Pac-10’s new channel will carry at least 350 sports events. The conference is also creating a digital channel, like ESPN3, to carry at least 500 events annually, and a properties division to handle sponsorships.
