Pac-12 Basketball on TV: Week 1

The college basketball season tips off this Friday with a huge slate of games throughout the weekend. Here’s the early matchups for all the Pac-12 schools this week. All times are pacific.

Friday, November 9th

  • 4:00 pm – Wofford @ Colorado (Pac-12 Network)
  • 6:00 pm – Niagara @ Oregon State (2K Sports Classic) (Pac-12 Network)
  • 6:00 pm – Willamette @ Utah (Pac-12 Mountain)
  • 8:00 pm – Indiana State @ UCLA (FOX Sports Networks)
  • 8:00 pm – San Francisco vs. Stanford (at Oakland, CA) (Pac-12 Network)
  • 8:00 pm – Coppin State @ USC (Pac-12 Los Angeles)

Saturday, November 10th

  • 4:30 pm – Northern Arizona @ Oregon (Pac-12 Network)
  • 4:30 pm – Central Arkansas @ Arizona State (Pac-12 Arizona)
  • 4:30 pm – Eastern Washington @ Washington State (Pac-12 Washington)

Sunday, November 11th

  • 3:00 pm – Charleston Southern @ Arizona (Pac-12 Network)
  • 5:00 pm – Loyola (MD) @ Washington (Pac-12 Network)
  • 6:30 pm – New Mexico State @ Oregon State (2K Sports Classic) (ESPNU)
  • 7:00 pm – CS Bakersfield @ California (Pac-12 Network)

Obviously, if you don’t have the Pac-12 Networks, you’re not going to be able to watch many games to start the year. In fairness, there’s a lack of big matchups. The Indiana State vs. UCLA game on regional FOX Sports Networks may be the best game out of the batch, and both San Francisco and Stanford meet in an interesting neutral site game.

More coverage of Oregon’s opener against Northern Arizona on Saturday will be available later this week. TV listings made possible by Matt Sarz College Sports on TV.

UPDATE (11/9): With a last-minute check on the schedule, realized I forgot New Mexico State vs. Oregon State, part of the 2K Sports Classic, on Sunday night. It’s a game most of us can watch, so let’s see how well the in-state rivals start.

    I can’t believe it’s already the start of basketball season. My Buffs were ranked 6th in the Pac-12 Conference men’s basketball preseason standings, but I think they’ll do better than that. I won’t be home for the tipoff on Friday, but I set a recording of the game on the Pac-12 Networks on my Hopper from DISH so I can see the game later. The huge amount of hard drive space on my DVR helps me keep up with games when I have time for TV. I know it’s a long season, but the CU men’s team is going to beat up on Wofford this Friday!

      I agree, the fall has hurried by fast. I believe Oregon can also finish higher than their preseason ranking but it’s a completely wide-open conference again this year. Hoping the Buffs can get your mind off of the football season.

        Football season? Is that still going on? Just kidding, things are getting rough for CU football fans, and to be honest I think Oregon could’ve dropped 100 points on this Buffs team.
