Pac-12: SEC wins race for DirecTV
Now that the Southeastern Conference and DirecTV have reached an agreement for SEC Network telecasts of at least 45 football games nationally this season, the heat is turning up again on the Pac-12 Conference.
Since launching the Pac-12 Networks in 2012, the league has been unable to secure distribution via DirecTV. The SEC accomplished that in its network's first year.
For all that Larry Scott has accomplished as commissioner, including the creation of the Pac-12 Networks, the conference's inability to reach such an agreement is a blemish on his record. And it just got bigger with Monday's announcement.<
