The CW Network to Broadcast, Live-Stream All 11 Pac-12 College Football Games

The CW Network will broadcast and live stream (on its app) all 11 Pac-12 college football games featuring the conference’s lone two remaining schools Oregon State and Washington State during the upcoming 2024 season.

The network will provide full national coverage beginning Aug. 31 with a doubleheader featuring Portland State at Washington State (3 p.m. ET) and Idaho State at Oregon State (6:30 p.m. ET). All broadcasts will be produced by Pac-12’s production facility, Pac-12 Enterprises.

The Pac-12’s other 10 football schools departed for rival conferences throughout the country after the conference failed to secure a major media rights agreement.

“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,” Dennis Miller, president of The CW Network, said in a statement.

The CW will also broadcast/stream ACC football, LIV Golf and NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff races.

Pac-12 Commissioner Teresa Gould said the network would afford Oregon State and Washington State football a national stage as they compete for spots in the expanded post-season NCAA playoff format.

“Beaver and Cougar fans have a great opportunity to enjoy their teams’ successes,” Gould said.

Last season, The CW aired two college football games that delivered more than 1 million live total viewers, according to Nielsen, and set a viewership record for the most-watched Saturday national primetime in network history. The CW is poised to broadcast more than 500 hours of sports programming in 2025.

“National exposure and the ability for Beaver Nation to access our games was a top priority during the process,” added Scott Barnes, VP and director of intercollegiate athletics at Oregon State.

“Having WSU in 100% of the homes across the country will amplify the exposure of our program, and grow the connection with our fans and alumni,” said Washington State University interim director of athletics Anne McCoy.
