Maybe nothing's safe to assume! But you sound to be on sound ground.... but note that broadcast rights are different from blackout rules, so theoretically, ESPN or others could buy rights and so you'd have to go to ESPN or NBC or whomever. And assuming there's no Pac12 team involved, as some of those games won't be on DIRECTV® due to the Pac12 conference selling out to greed, I mean TV rights.

Well the only games airing on Root are those not picked up by ESPN or CBS, there won't be an overlap there, and any Pac 12 teams involved would be as road teams and thus they wouldn't have any say in the broadcast rights. As an out of region alumni my fingers are crossed that I will now be able to see almost every game live between the ESPN Networks, CBS Sports, and now Root.

Sounds like you have it covered! But you are either an alumnus or an alumna! 

Happy viewing.
