Watch list season is officially dead. Long live media day season!

NCAA Football: Pac-12 Media Day Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

College football is close. After months of previews, watch lists and other football related (but not actual football) stories, training camp is right around the corner. If history holds, the Cougs will kick off training camp sometime next weekend for you first taste of real football since April.

But before that, we still have one final preseason box to check: Media Day.

The Pac-12 will be the last conference to hold their media day festivities when they head to Hollywood for the two-day event. Six teams will take the stage this afternoon, with the other half of the conference, including the Cougs, following on Thursday afternoon. Here’s a look at the schedule for when he teams will join the Pac-12 Network TV broadcast:

Wednesday

  • Washington - Chris Petersen (9:50 AM), Jake Browning and Keishawn Bierria (10:06 AM)
  • Arizona - Rich Rodriquez (10:16 AM), Jacob Alsadek and Luca Bruno (10:31 AM)
  • California - Justin Wilcox (10:42 AM), Tre Watson and James Looney (10:57 AM)
  • UCLA - Jim Mora (11:08 AM), Scott Quessenberry and Kenny Young (11:23 AM)
  • Oregon State - Gary Andersen (11:34 AM), Ryan Nall and Manase Hungalu (11:48 AM)
  • Colorado - Mike MacIntyre (11:59 AM), Phillip Lindsay and Derek McCartney (12:14 PM)

Thursday

  • Utah - Kyle Wittingham (9:50 AM), Salesi Uhatafe and Filipo Mokofisi (10:06 AM)
  • Oregon - Willie Taggart (10:16 AM), Justin Herbert and Troy Dye (10:31 AM)
  • Arizona State - Todd Graham (10:42 AM), Kalen Ballage and JoJo Wicker (10:57 AM)
  • Stanford - David Shaw (11:08 AM), Bryce Love and Harrison Phillips (11:23 AM)
  • Washington State - Mike Leach (11:34 AM), Jamal Morrow and Peyton Pelluer (11:48 AM)
  • USC - Clay Helton (11:59 AM), Sam Darnold and Cameron Smith (12:14 PM)

The teams will also have a separate media availability in a classic podium-style format, but, outside of transcripts, those usually aren’t streamed or archived after the fact.

The conference also does a good job at letting the guys have fun out there. So keep an eye on social media for a look those games (and pictures of players in horse masks).
