Oregon St., Wazzu home games on CW, Fox in ’24

Sports

The CW and FOX Sports will combine to televise the 2024 home football games for the remaining two Pac-12 teams, Oregon State and Washington State, the conference announced Tuesday.

“We are thrilled to announce these national partnerships with The CW and FOX,” Pac-12 commissioner Teresa Gould said in a statement. “Oregon State and Washington State football student-athletes deserve this elite stage as they continue competing for the College Football Playoff, and Beaver and Cougar fans have a great opportunity to enjoy their teams successes.”

The schools have 13 home games between them, with 11 slated to broadcast on The CW, with the other two – Oregon at OSU (Sept. 14); Texas Tech at WSU (Sept. 7) – to air on FOX or FS1.

All 11 games on The CW will be produced through the conference’s existing production facility.

“Adding the Pac-12 Conference to The CW’s growing roster of live sports gives the network coast-to-coast coverage in key markets and solidifies our position as a national player in college sports,” The CW president Dennis Miller said in a statement. “The CW will truly be a destination for all sports fans this fall with impressive weekend lineups consisting of Pac-12 football, ACC football, LIV Golf and NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff races.”

Financial terms for the agreement were not disclosed.

In the wake of UCLA and USC’s announced departure for the Big Ten in 2022, the Pac-12 collapsed last summer after former commissioner George Kliavkoff was unable to secure a media rights package enticing enough to keep, most notably, Oregon and Washington on board. After considering a streaming-heavy deal with Apple, Oregon and Washington also jumped to the Big Ten, in what represented a death knell for Pac-12 as a major conference.

Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah moved to the Big 12 and Stanford and Cal left for the ACC, leaving OSU and WSU in continued limbo. The schools have a scheduling agreement to play six football games – three home; three away – against Mountain West opponents in 2024. Additionally, OSU and WSU entered into an alliance with the West Coast Conference for most of their remaining sports, including basketball.
