Pac-12 Networks announced plans to stream games in minor sports on Twitter.

At least 150 games next school year will be available via the social media service. Football and basketball games will not be part of the program.

“The Pac-12 Networks’ collaboration with Twitter reflects our ongoing commitment to increasing exposure for Pac-12 universities and their live, school-produced events,” said Pac-12 Networks President Lydia Murphy-Stephans in a statement. “By expanding our digital footprint, Pac-12 Plus also allows us to connect more fans with more, live Pac-12 sports content through a platform they use every day.”

The slate of games, which will be restricted to school-produced broadcasts in non-revenue generating sports, has yet to be determined. 

Pac-12 Networks announced today that Twitter will be its premier streaming partner for Pac-12 Plus, a broadband network of live events produced by the conference’s 12 universities, with at least 150 games over the 2016-2017 academic year live streamed to fans on Twitter.
