Looking to rebound after losing the Bowl Championship Series, Fox Sports and the Pac-10 Conference have reached a one-year agreement for Fox to broadcast the inaugural Pac-12 Football Championship Game.
The game is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, December 3, 2011 at the home stadium of the team with the best conference record, with kickoff planned at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Included in the deal is an increase of games on Fox Sports Net by up to six football and 10 men’s basketball games, factoring into account the additions of Utah and Colorado to the conference.
“This is an historic time for the conference as we expand to the Pac-12 next season and we are thrilled to be working with FOX Sports and their award-winning production team,” Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott said. “FOX has demonstrated its ability to drive new innovation into sports broadcasting and we look forward to seeing how they will help us take our Championship Game to the next level of interactive entertainment for our fans.”
