The Big 12 Conference will broadcast their annual Football Media Days for the first time ever in 2018, and that’s great news for fans of each of the ten teams that will be featured in Frisco Monday and Tuesday. For the second year in a row, the event will be held at The Star in North Texas, with five teams featured Monday and Tuesday.
Though the event will likely have less drama than a year ago, when there were new faces aplenty amongst the coaching ranks to go along with high profile QBs like Kenny Hill and Baker Mayfield, there is plenty of reason to tune in. Heck, it’s worth watching just to see how many times Lincoln Riley gets asked about Kyler Murray and/or the Georgia defense.
Gary Patterson and TCU are among the first teams to take the mike, as the Frogs will be on the Monday slate. We will have two of our intrepid reporters on the ground for the chaos, and will be covering the event completely here and on twitter. But, if you want to watch along yourself, here’s what you need to know:
Big 12 Media Days will be televised both days from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. CT nationally on FS2 and FOX College Sports Central, and on FOX Sports Regional Networks in the Big 12 footprint, including FOX Sports Southwest, FOX Sports Oklahoma, FOX Sports Midwest and FOX Sports Southeast.
