The Pac-12 Network and the conference's agreement with the ESPN Network will provide fans all across the country with coverage of nearly every football game played out west for years to come. The conference released the TV listings for a couple of games on Thursday, and both the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona St. Sun Devils will be featured on national telecasts.
We'll take a look at the schedule after the jump.
The first game of the Rich Rodriguez era will be against Toledo on September 1. It will be telecast on ESPNU and is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. from Tucson.
Arizona's showdown with Oklahoma State in week two will be featured on the Pac-12 Network. Kickoff for that game is also at 7:30. Their game the next week with FBS South Carolina State is also likely headed for the Pac-12 Network Arizona station. It will begin at 7:30 as well.
The first Pac-12 game of the year for UA, which is against Oregon on September 22, will be aired on one of the ESPN affiliates. The start time is TBD.
As we posted earlier today, Arizona vs. ASU, which is the season finale for both teams, will be on ESPN the night after Thanksgiving. Kickoff will be at 8 p.m.
ASU's season opener against NAU will be televised on the Pac-12 Network the evening of August 30. Their next game against Illinois will mark their ESPN debut, as the game is set to be picked up by the World Wide Leader on September 8 at 7:30 p.m.
The Sun Devils will play back-to-back Thursday night games in October that will both be aired on ESPN. Their week seven matchup is at Colorado, and they will welcome in the Oregon Ducks the following week.
And then the afore mentioned showdown with UA will be played November 23.
