Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott says conference may schedule fewer night games

Before the game between Arizona State and Washington State on Thursday night, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott acknowledged the complaints he’s been hearing all season regarding the late kickoff times that have dominated the conference’s football schedule in 2013.

Said Scott:

I get a lot of feedback when I go to campuses. We’d like to see it adjusted a little bit. Based on the feedback I’m getting from campuses, they’d like to see fewer (night games) (The Seattle Times).

Scott went on to explain that the influx of night games this season was due to an agreement with Fox Sports 1:

The advent of FoxSports1 as a dedicated sports channel is one of the reasons we do have more evening games. I think that’s why people are feeling a significant difference from last year to this year.


Long-term, (FoxSports1) will be great for our conference. They’re going to be a robust competitor with ESPN, they do a great job of production and we’re one of the featured rights-holders. They’re going to do a great job promoting Pac-12 football.

I’ll just leave “Night Moves” here.
