The Pac-12 Conference and the Pac-12 Networks has announced live television coverage for a minimum of 14 combined contests featuring Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Men's Water Polo, men's volleyball, and men's gymnastics in the 2012-13 athletic season. As primary members of the Pac-12, each of the 14 scheduled telecasts will cover UCLA, USC, Stanford, or California, while 11 of the 14 are head-to-head MPSF showdowns amongst the four schools.

Live upcoming Pac-12 Network coverage featuring MPSF Men's Water Polo includes a Saturday, October 6 doubleheader, as four-time defending NCAA Champion USC visits Stanford at 9 am and defending MPSF Champion UCLA travels to California for a 12:30 pm first sprint. The Cardinal and Bears renew their rivalry for an October 20 telecast, before the Bruins can be seen twice more in November, as they head to USC on the 17th and host UC Irvine on the 18th.

The first-ever men's volleyball match covered by Pac-12 Networks is on January 18, when Stanford visits USC. The Cardinal reached the conference championship match last year in Galen Center, while the Trojans have served as semifinal and championship hosts each of the last two years by winning regular season titles. USC also hosts Pepperdine on March 21. Stanford can be seen when it hosts UCLA and USC, on January 22 and March 3, respectively. In addition, UCLA hosts UC Irvine on January 29 and Stanford on March 10, in newly renovated Pauley Pavilion. Finally, both official MPSF contests between rivals USC and UCLA will also be covered, February 18 on the Trojan campus followed by the April 12 contest in Westwood.

Pac-12 Networks will also provide live coverage of a men's gymnastics meet between California and Stanford, two of the four MPSF programs in this sport, on February 17 in Palo Alto. The Pac-12 Networks launched on August 15, 2012, consisting of one national and six regional networks devoted solely to the Pac-12. In addition to the hundreds of live televised Pac-12 sporting events, Pac-12 Networks subscribers have access to their carrier's TV Everywhere platform, providing access to all Pac-12 Networks programming on any device through their broadband service.
