Not a single Beaver game on ESPN or ABC…notice who else was left out? Yup, you guessed it. Washington State.
WALNUT CREEK, Calif.–Pac-10 Conference television partner ESPN/ABC will provide extensive coverage of Pac-12 football in 2011. ESPN and ABC will combine to televise 20 games from Pac-12 sites. Some of the games to be televised are selected prior to the season, others will be selected as the season progresses with picks made either six or 12 days prior to the games. Additional telecast selections by Fox Sports Net/Versus/FX will be announced in early June, 2011.
“The inaugural year of the Pac-12 will showcase new rivalries and some of the very best football in the country,” stated Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott. “We are delighted that this year, ESPN's Thursday and Friday night packages will provide significant national exposure for the entire Conference, along with our Saturday coverage on ESPN and ABC.”
