The Pac-12 announced its 20-game 2011-12 women's basketball national television schedule on FSN with the California Golden Bears being featured in at least three broadcasts, including the regular-season finale, the Battle of the Bay against Stanford on Sunday, March 4.

Cal's first trip to Salt Lake City to take on Utah as a conference opponent will be the first of the three games shown nationally on Fox Sports Net and locally on CSN Bay Area. The Bears and Utes will play on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time.

The other two televised contests will be home games. Cal's game against Washington State on Sunday, Jan. 22 will tip at 3:30. Cal closes out the season, and the regular-season TV schedule with the Battle of the Bay against Stanford, taking on the Cardinal at Haas Pavilion on Sunday, March 4 at 6 p.m. Pacific Time.

All three of these games were originally slated to be played on Saturdays but were moved to Sundays to accommodate the television broadcast.

This season, there is one wildcard game, where the network will decide on which game to feature two weeks before the broadcast date. USC at California on Feb. 11 is one of the games that might be picked up for television that week.

In addition to the regular season broadcasts, FSN/CSN Bay Area will once again televise the semifinals and championship game of the Pacific Life Pac-12 Tournament.
