FOX Sports Announces 2014 College Football Schedule
Fox Sports presents College Football fans with some of the most exciting matchups in 2014, as over 100 games are scheduled to air across its national and local broadcast and cable platforms. Top contests featuring Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA teams appear on the FOX broadcast network, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports Networks (FSN), FOX College Sports (FCS), FOX Deportes and Fox Sports GO all season long, culminating with the Pac-12 and Big Ten conference championship games on back-to-back nights on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 5 and 6.
The College Football season kicks off with four straight days of action, beginning Thursday, August 28 (10:00 PM ET), with a Fox Sports 1 Thursday night game as Rutgers first takes the football field as a member of the Big Ten, facing Washington State at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Play continues the following evening with Colorado State vs. Colorado at Sports Authority Field at Mile High (9:00 PM ET) on Fox Sports 1.
The first Saturday of the season is jam-packed with games across the Fox Sports family of networks, highlighted by the first game in USC's Steve Sarkisian era, as the Trojans host Fresno State on Saturday, August 30, (7:30 PM ET) on FOX and FOX Deportes in a rematch of last season's Las Vegas Bowl. On Fox Sports 1, three-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State has made a habit of knocking off FBS schools, and looks to do it again when the Bison take on Iowa State at 12:00 PM ET. Wrapping up the first weekend of action, reigning Big 12 champion Baylor hosts SMU in a rare Sunday showdown at 7:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1 to open the Bears' beautiful new facility, McLane Stadium.
More College Football heavyweights come to FOX and FOX Deportes on Saturday, Sept. 6, and 13, with a matchup of two potential top-10 teams on the second weekend of the season when Heisman candidate Marcus Mariota and Oregon host Michigan State (6:30 PM ET). FOX has a broadcast doubleheader the following weekend, beginning at 4:00 PM ET with another Big Ten vs. Pac-12 clash, as Washington hosts Illinois.

The 2014 Fox Sports College Football schedule includes 15 straight Saturdays of afternoon or Primetime action, capped off by the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday, Dec. 6 (8:00 PM ET) live from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Pac-12 crowns its champion the night before on FOX at 9:00 PM ET on Friday, Dec. 5, from the brand-new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. The two contests determine which squads Face Off in the Rose Bowl Game or which advance to the first-ever College Football Playoff.
