More Television Schedules Announced
14 Televised Events Offer Unprecedented Regular Season Exposure to Championship Programs
The Pac-12 Networks today released its television schedule featuring field hockey, men's water polo and the Pac-12 Cross Country Championships, rounding out the Networks' inaugural fall televised event schedule that includes 217 contests over 100 days.
Stanford and California field hockey split appearances in the Networks' six-game television lineup with both programs hosting two-time defending NCAA Champion Maryland. The Terrapins face Cal on Au-gust 24 at 5:00 PM PT, followed by Stanford on August 26 at 1:00 PM PT. Both teams also face Big Ten opponents with Northwestern traveling to Cal on August 31 at 2:00 PM PT and Iowa visiting the Cardinal on September 7 at 2:30 PM PT. The Bay Area teams make their final Network appearances before closing out the televised schedule against each other on September 28 in Berkeley (Noon PT) and on October 23 in Palo Alto (7:00 PM PT).
The men's water polo schedule on Pac-12 Networks features seven contests, including three appear-ances from four-time NCAA Champion USC. UCLA opens the slate on September 22 hosting Loyola Marymount, while the Trojans make their Pac-12 Networks debut against Princeton on September 29. Air times for men's water polo will be determined 6-12 days prior to the match.
The Pac-12 Cross Country Championships will be the first Conference Championship to air on Pac-12 Networks and is sure to include a bevy of talent following the Conference's impressive showing at the NCAA Championships last year. In individual results, the Pac-12 posted four runners in the men's top 10 with Arizona's Lawi Lalang claiming the individual national championship in his collegiate debut. Meanwhile on the women's side, the Pac-12's had two individuals place in the top 10, including na-tional runner-up Jordan Hasay of Oregon. In its Pac-12 debut, Colorado swept the men's and women's titles in 2011 and both placed in the top 11 at NCAAs, including a third-place finish by the CU men. The Washington women, who were the runner up at the Pac-12 meet, were also the runner up at the NCAA Championships. The airdate for the 2012 Pac-12 Cross Country Championships will be an-nounced later this fall.
The Pac-12 Networks launch August 15 and will consist of one national and six regional networks de-voted 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.
