DESCRIPTION: (from FOX's press release, May 2017) FOX Sports owns the fall, highlighted by the network's best-ever college football schedule released today. The impressive lineup features top games from the Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences, including several of the nation's most-anticipated games such as Ohio State at Michigan, Texas at USC and Oklahoma at Oklahoma State, plus the Big Ten and Big 12 championship games. "By adding the best games from the Big Ten Conference to our already impressive portfolio of top contests from the Big 12 and Pac-12, and putting more of those games on broadcast television than ever before, FOX Sports truly solidifies itself as a leader in the college football landscape," said FOX Sports President, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Producer Eric Shanks. "With the MLB Postseason and the best NFL regular-season schedule of any network, we are thrilled to be the top destination for sports fans this fall." For the first time ever, FOX Sports presents "The Game," annually the biggest event on the college football regular-season calendar. Ohio State and Michigan renew their rivalry at the Big House on Saturday, Nov. 25, at 12:00 PM ET on the FOX broadcast network with a full one-hour edition of the FOX COLLEGE FOOTBALL KICKOFF pregame show live from Ann Arbor at 11:00 AM ET. That historic matchup is part of a huge weekend for FOX Sports, which also includes the Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day as well as Iowa at Nebraska in the Heroes Game, plus in-state showdowns between Texas Tech and Texas, Cal and UCLA and Baylor at TCU on Friday, Nov. 24.
