'Showdown Saturday' viewer guide

Four key conference football games will be on Pac-12 Networks this Saturday, including three that feature top 20 teams: No. 4 Oregon, No. 7 Oregon State and No. 17 Stanford. The games are:

  • Oregon vs. Colorado (12 p.m. PT)
  • Stanford vs. Washington State (3:15 p.m. PT)
  • Utah vs. Cal (6:45 p.m. PT)
  • Washington vs. Oregon State (7:15 p.m. PT)

We 're calling this "Showdown Saturday." If you’ve made it this far, you’re looking for help watching one the games on TV, online, or in bar or restaurant with a TV package that carries the games. Let’s cut to the chase.

The early games are tidy. Colorado vs. Oregon (12 p.m. PT) and Washington State vs. Stanford (3:15 p.m. PT) both are airing across all seven Pac-12 Networks channels and live streaming on the Web, iPad, and iPhone using your TV provider login (details below). Use our Channel Finder to locate the Pac-12 Networks on your dial.

The evening games are more involved.

Utah vs. Cal (6:45 p.m. PT) and Washington vs. Oregon State (7:15 PT) share the same telecast window as we say in the business. They overlap. This won’t be a problem for fans nearest those schools; Cal at Utah will be carried on Pac-12 Mountain and Pac-12 Bay Area, while Oregon State-Washington will be on Pac-12 Arizona, Pac-12 Oregon, Pac-12 Los Angeles, Pac-12 Washington and Pac-12 National.

But fans of those four schools outside those regions may have to take additional steps to find their games. They include:

Find an “overflow” channel

To help some fans manage the evening schedule conflict, Cox West (Orange County, Palos Verdes, San Diego and Santa Barbara), DISH and Suddenlink in Arizona have established overflow channels to allow their customers to get both games. DISH will have the OSU-UW game on channel 413 and the Cal-Utah game on channel 5454 in high definition or 5453 in standard definition. Cox West will carry Cal-Utah on channel 3 in Orange County and Palos Verdes, channel 4 in San Diego and channel 8 in Santa Barbara. Suddenlink is permanently adding Pac-12 Bay Area in standard definition on channel 533 as part of its digital sports and information tier in Arizona.

Watch via ‘TV Everywhere’

Pac-12 fans who receive the Pac-12 Networks from Bend Broadband, Bright House, Canby, CC Communications, Cox, Crestview, DISH, Frontier, Rancho Murieta, TCT West, Time Warner Cable and some Suddenlink customers can watch all games and channels online for free at video.Pac-12.com or on the iPad or iPhone with our Pac-12 Now app. Your TV provider login is required to unlock and stream our “TV Everywhere” live channels.
