SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The new Pac-12 Networks will launch the inaugural football season by airing 15 games the first three weeks of 2012.

The Pac-12 Networks announced Thursday that it will kick off its 35-game schedule with six games the opening week of the season, starting with Northern Colorado-Utah and Northern Arizona-Arizona State on Aug. 30.

With the addition of California at USC on Sept. 22, the networks will televise at least one game from each of the conference's 12 schools during the first four weeks of the season.

The Pac-12 Networks, created last summer, will air 850 sporting events a year - 350 nationally and 500 regionally.

The conference also signed a 12-year television contract worth about $3 billion with Fox and ESPN, which will air many of the most high-profile games.
