Watch the Pac-10 press conference live @ 8 a.m. Wednesday

Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott will host a news conference at 8 a.m. (PST) Wednesday to formally announce the new 12-year, $3 billion TV deal the league has with ESPN and Fox.
Executives from both networks will also be in attendance.
The deal is being heralded as a major accomplishment for Scott and the conference, which will soon become the Pac-12 with the addition of Colorado and Utah.
Washington athletic director Scott Woodward told Bob Condotta he was thrilled with the new deal.
“As a self-sustaining athletic department accepting no funding from our university, we rely on many different streams of revenue to support 21 sports programs and over $8 million in annual student-athlete scholarships,” Woodward said. “This new agreement will help us keep pace with the rising costs of tuition, travel and national competition, enabling us to continue providing a first-class experience for over 650 Husky student-athletes into the coming decade.”
The new deal begins to start the 2012-13 season.
You can watch the press conference below.
