Season three of The Drive: Pac-12 Football, Presented by Lexus will consist of 10 30-minute episodes, featuring both OSU and Utah airing weekly throughout the fall. It is the first weekly all-access, quick turnaround docu-series following two collegiate teams to run on television concurrently with the season. Similar to previous seasons, The Drive will go behind the scenes to give viewers an unprecedented look at Oregon State and Utah's quest for a Pac-12 Championship. Pac-12 Networks production crews will be embedded within the Beavers’ and Utes’ football programs, delivering a rare insider's point of view.

Now in its third season, The Drive previously featured three Pac-12 teams – Arizona State, California and UCLA – through the highs and lows that come in the quest for a Pac-12 Championship. From moments at home with family and friends to the time spent in the classroom and on campus, fans receive a complete picture of life during the college football season for individuals in and around the program.

Production on The Drive is once again led by Pac-12 Networks’ Senior Coordinating Producer Michael Tolajian. Pac-12 Networks analyst Yogi Roth also returns as the voice of the series.
