2022 Pac-12 Media Day: Schedule, TV info, and what to expect
We’ve heard from the Big 12’s new, brash commissioner. The SEC bathed in the spotlight for a whole four days in Atlanta. The ACC talked. The Big Ten boasted. Now it’s the Pac-12’s turn to take the main stage.
The league takes to Los Angeles on Friday for its annual Media Day. Every Pac-12 coach, athletic director, and players from each school are on hand to talk about the new season, the future of the league, and whatever else gathered media can think to ask about. The unofficial start to the new college football season is upon us.
Here’s everything you need to know about the day-long event.
Pac-12 Networks will feature complete coverage of the day, which kicks off with league commissioner George Kliavkoff on the main stage at 8 a.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network and the Pac-12 Now app.
Pac-12 Networks’ Ashley Adamson, Nigel Burton, and Yogi Roth will be live from Los Angeles to break down the upcoming Pac-12 schedule, chat with attendees, and preview the players and storylines to watch for this 2022 football campaign. The trio will sit down with all 12 teams beginning at 10 a.m. PT on Pac-12 Network, the Pac-12 Now app, and Pac-12.com.
Adamson, Burton, and Roth will also chat with Kliavkoff and recap the sights and sounds of the day during a special installment of, “Pac-12 Football Media Day,” which will air at 4 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Network, the Pac-12 Now app, and Pac-12.com.
