WALNUT CREEK, Calif - The Pacific-10 Conference will conduct its annual Football Media Day on Thursday, July 30, 2009, beginning at 9:30 a.m. PT at the Sheraton Gateway LAX Hotel.

Arizona head coach Mike Stoops will travel with senior free safety Cam Nelson to represent the Wildcats at the media day festivities.

Nelson, entering his third season as a starter in the UA secondary, will join player representatives from the other nine conference schools for a dinner with Pac-10 administrators on the Wednesday evening. A full slate of interviews and media activities await Nelson and Stoops on Thursday in the official pre-season kickoff for the Pac-10 Conference, which posted a 5-0 record in bowl games last season.

Each Pac-10 institution will be represented by its head football coach and a leading returning student-athlete, who will be given the opportunity to address media members from around the country. In addition, new Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott will be on hand to address the media.

The event will be streamed live and, for the first time, fans can take part and submit questions for the Pac-10 head coaches and players in attendance.

Pac-10 Football Media Day may be viewed in its entirety, Pac-10 member school websites and numerous other additional media outlets.

Questions may be submitted at any time leading up to the event or on the day itself. The best questions will be selected and asked by the webcast's host, Steve Physioc, who will be calling Pac-10 football games this season on Fox Sports Net.
