WALNUT CREEK, Calif.


The Pac-12 Conference office released the 2012 football schedule today and Utah will be the first Pac-12 team in action, hosting Northern Colorado on Thursday, Aug. 30. With the new ESPN and FOX media rights agreement, and the August 2012 launch of the Pac-12 Networks, every Pac-12 football game will be available on national television.

There will be 44 games on the combination of ESPN's family of networks, Fox Broadcast and FX, while 34 games are scheduled to air on the Pac-12 Networks. Exact broadcast schedules will be determined at a later date.

"The one thing we heard loud and clear from fans across the conference is they want to see their teams play every week," Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said. "Starting in 2012 fans can see all games throughout the country."

For the first time since 1994, Utah will complete its non-conference slate in the first three weeks of the season, playing in-state foes Utah State on Sept. 8 in Logan and Brigham Young on Sept. 15 in Salt Lake City. The BYU game is homecoming, marking just the second time the two rivals have met in a homecoming game in Salt Lake City (Utah won 30-21 in 1968).

Utah's Pac-12 opener is on Sept. 22 at Arizona State and its first conference visitor is USC on Thursday, Oct. 4. Both Utah and USC have a bye the week prior in accordance with a Pac-12 policy on Thursday games.

Utah's other Southern division games are against UCLA (Oct. 13 in Los Angeles), Arizona (Nov. 17 in Salt Lake City) and Colorado (Nov. 23 in Boulder).

 

 

Utah's crossover games against Northern division foes begin with a road game against Oregon State on Oct. 20. The Utes will host back-to-back games against the north on Oct. 27 (California) and Nov. 3 (Washington State) and play at Washington on Nov. 10.

The Pac-12 Championship game will be played on Friday, Nov. 30 at the home field of the team with the best overall conference record.
