Football: No word yet on Big Game kickoff

If you were hoping/expecting to get a kickoff time today for the Nov. 23 Big Game, you’ll have to be patient.

The Pac-12 announced that FOX has exercised its right to conduct a six-day selection for conference football games that day.

The 116th Big Game was one of four games held back for a six-day selection. The other three contests are Oregon at Arizona, Arizona State at UCLA and USC at Colorado.

In a nutshell, the game at Stanford could held in the early afternoon, late afternoon or at night. In other words, we know nothing.

The possibilities for start times and television coverage of the four contests were announced Monday and are listed below in order of selection.

· FOX – 5 p.m. MT/4 p.m. PT

· ESPN (Network TBD) – 1:30 p.m. MT/12:30 p.m. PT

· Pac-12 Networks – 7:30 p.m. MT/PT (local)

· FOX Sports 1 – 2 p.m. MT/1 p.m. PT
