Spring practices have already begun on all 12 campuses and for the second straight year, all Pac-12 spring games will be televised live beginning Saturday, April 12 with Colorado at 11:00 a.m. PT, followed by both Arizona and Stanford spring games at 1:00 p.m. PT.

Saturday, April 19 features four more games, starting in the desert with Arizona State at 11:00 a.m., followed by Utah at Noon. New head coach Chris Petersen and the Washington Huskies take the field at 1:00 p.m., while the Steve Sarkisian era at USC kicks off from the Coliseum at 3:00 p.m. PT.

Each spring game telecast will feature a play-by-play voice, analyst and sideline reporter on-site to call the action, plus potential appearances by special guests and alumni.

On April 12 and April 19, the studio teams will anchor Spring Football Live, shuttling select regional network viewers between spring games occurring simultaneously.
