Fox to broadcast Pac-12 title game

The Pac-10 may still have a game left to play this season with Oregon getting ready to take on Auburn in the title game, but the conference is already moving forward with plans for next season when it will become the Pac-12 and add Colorado and Utah to the conference.  Which means that the conference will now have a championship game, and now the conference has a place to broadcast that game.

It was announced on Thursday that the Pac-12 and Fox had reached a broadcast agreement for the game.
Fox has secured the rights to the Pac-12’s football championship game in '11, giving the network a doubleheader of championship games on Dec. 3. Fox also has the Big Ten’s title game that day. Industry sources said Fox is paying the Pac-12 $25M for the championship game and other game inventory that is the result of the conference’s expansion from 10 teams to 12. The Pac-12’s championship game is valued at around $14.5M, sources said; the other $10.5M is part of a prior contractual obligation. An announcement on the deal is expected later today.
Which means that Fox will now be broadcasting the Pac-10 and Big Ten title games next season, as the network has looked for more opportunities to broadcast college football games since losing the BCS to ESPN.  It also means ESPN will now only have one conference championship to broadcast for the foreseeable future, the ACC Championship.  CBS obviously holds the rights to the SEC Championship.

Fox to broadcast Pac-12 title game

I'm waiting with baited breath for the endless cutaways to the respective school's bands.  Someone at Fox (maybe the same person who is obsessed with animated robots on NFL coverage) clearly enjoys having as many band cutaway shots as possible.  This doesn't happen on Fox Sports Net on cable, just Fox's terrestrial television coverage.

Fox to broadcast Pac-12 title game

Oh great, a company who was awful at broadcasting college football is back. Hopefully they can send some announcers who at least know college football as Fox didn’t when they hosted the BCS.
