2015 Pac-12 Football Media Days Schedule & Primer

Tomorrow marks the unofficial start of the college football season in the Pac-12 when the conference holds their annual media days at Warner Brothers Studios in beautiful, downtown Burbank.

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Things are heating up in LA. Tomorrow's forecast is a high of 91 degrees with unusually high 55% humidity, a chance of thunderstorms and a 100% chance of coaches talking football in Burbank! That's because the Pac-12 Conference will hold its annual football media days tomorrow and Friday at Warner Brothers Studios.

As in past years, half the conference will be at one session and the other half will be at Friday's session. UCLA is set to go mid-morning tomorrow with Coach Mora's press conference scheduled for 10:50 am. Jake Brendel and Deon Hollins will be representing the offense and the defense, respectively.

The Pac-12 Networks will once again air their Media Days' specials with interviews from all the schools throughout the day. The broadcast schedule is a little different from the press conference schedule. The chart below shows both press conference times and the Pac-12 Networks TV schedule. The Pac-12 Networks will be interviewing the coaches and players during their time. They will not be showing the press conferences except for Larry Scott and Lydia Murphy-Stephens.

In addition, the Pac-12 Now app for Android and iOS and Pac-12.com will allow you to watch if you're not in front of a TV. Coverage starts at 9 am both days.

But your favorite Bruins website Bruins Nation will be there and will be reporting throughout the day as merited.

Notes & Predictions:

Must See TV: Duh! UCLA Coach Jim Mora, Jake Brendel and Deon Hollins when they talk about the upcoming season.

Must See TV, part two: Friday's interview with Mike Leach of Washington State. Heck, turn it into a drinking game! If he mentions pirates, DRINK! If he discusses Geronimo, DRINK TWICE. If he goes totally off the wall, THREE TIMES!!!

Who's Under Center?: Interesting only three of twelve schools are bringing quarterbacks.

In The Trenches: Four schools are bringing offensive linemen. That's more linemen than QBs.

Best Player Name In Attendance: Storm Barrs-Woods, RB, Oregon State because there's just something about his name that sounds cool.

Best Player Name In Attendance, Runner-up: Larry Scott, CB, Oregon State because he and the conference commish share the same name.

Easiest Prediction: Coach Mora will dodge the question about who his starting quarterback will be.

Go Bruins!!!
