Missy Franklin makes Pac-12 Networks debut

The current best women's swimmer in the world gets ready to fly with the Cal women's swimming team.

Jamie Squire

Missy Franklin had an interesting choice: Turn pro and make millions of dollars in endorsements, or go to college and enjoy the experience of being on a team with a bunch of great women's athletes. Franklin decided that college is what she wanted to do, and she ended up picking the California Golden Bears as her school of choice.

The Pac-12 Networks gets the honor of calling her first televised collegiate matchup, as Franklin will lead her number one Cal swimming team into battle against Arizona State. Also calling the matchup will be former Cal great Natalie Coughlin. Friday’s meet will be aired live on the Pac-12 Networks starting at noon PT (and replayed at 10 p.m. PT). Saturday’s meet  against Arizona will be shown on tape-delay at 8:30 p.m PT.

Here's all the info you need to watch Cal women's swimming vs. Arizona State tomorrow on the Pac-12 Networks.

For those with a Comcast subscription to the Pac-12 Network, if you're in-market you will receive the regional TV channel in HD and a national channel in SD only. If you're out-of-market, you will probably get only the national standard definition channel. The good news if you subscribe to the Pac-12 Network, you should have access to the current online feeds for all seven channels.

Here are the channel links.

Comcast doesn't have TV Everywhere, running things through their servers. Much of the original video programming on the Pac-12 site remains totally inaccessible to customers along with access via your mobile device.
