BYU will be featured once on the game of the week — on Jan. 12, when the Cougars visit Santa Clara.
"The Game of the Week and pre-game show will help highlight our men's basketball programs and further strengthen our position as one of the best basketball conferences in the nation," Zaninovich said.
The commissioner added that 85 percent of conference games will be televised this year thanks to its broadcasting partners — ESPN, BYUtv and Time Warner.
