FOX Sports opens its 2015 college football schedule with the opening game in what is the second Jim Harbaugh Era at Michigan. Once a four-year letterwinner and record-setting quarterback with the Wolverines, Harbaugh rejoined the program last December as head coach and leads his squad into Salt Lake City to take on Utah and star running back Devontae Booker on Thursday, Sept. 3, at 8:30 PM ET on FOX Sports 1. This exciting season-opening matchup is one of nearly 100 games telecast on FOX Sports’ national and regional platforms, comprising a schedule that features top contests from the Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA on the FOX broadcast network, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports Networks (FSN), FOX College Sports (FCS), FOX Deportes and FOX Sports GO.
The 2015 college football season kicks off on an action-packed Labor Day weekend with seven games across all FOX Sports networks featuring teams from each of the Power 5 conferences on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 3, 5 and 6. FOX broadcast network airs its first matchup of the season on Saturday, as UCLA welcomes Virginia at 3:30 PM ET. Later that night, preseason Heisman candidate Dak Prescott leads Mississippi State on the road against in-state rival Southern Miss at 10:00 PM ET on FOX Sports 1. The weekend wraps up Sunday afternoon on FOX Sports 1 as Marshall, which nearly completed a perfect season a year ago, hosts Purdue at 3:00 PM ET.
FOX Sports’ Week 2 and 3 schedules are highlighted by a pair of major non-conference showdowns on FOX broadcast network, beginning Saturday, Sept. 12, as Iowa State looks to retain possession of the Cy-Hawk Trophy in an in-state rivalry clash with Iowa at 4:30 PM ET. One week later, head coach Charlie Strong leads Texas into a home game against Cal and record-setting quarterback Jared Goff in prime time on Saturday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 PM ET.
The 2015 FOX Sports college football schedule includes 14 straight Saturdays of afternoon or primetime action on FOX broadcast network, capped off by the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday, Dec. 5 (8:00 PM ET) live from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Last year’s title game featured a surging Ohio State team, playing with a potential berth in the inaugural College Football Playoff hanging in the balance. Led by quarterback Cardale Jones in his first career start, the Buckeyes dominated Wisconsin, 59-0, securing the final spot in the four-team bracket and going on to upset Alabama and Oregon en route to winning the 2015 College Football National Championship.
Each Saturday in the fall, FOX Sports 1 carries one to three contests from the Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA and also presents a package of Thursday and Friday night games. This season, the weeknight action is highlighted by matchups that include Big 12 co-champion TCU, led by Heisman-hopeful quarterback Trevone Boykin, against West Virginia on Thursday, Oct. 29 (7:30 PM ET), and fellow co-champion Baylor on the road against head coach Bill Snyder’s K-State Wildcats on Thursday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 PM ET.
FOX Sports once again gives thanks for rivalries on Thanksgiving weekend, beginning with a primetime battle for the Chancellor’s Spurs as Texas hosts Texas Tech on Thursday, Nov. 26 (7:30 PM ET, FOX Sports 1). Friday, Nov. 27 features a pair of historic Pac-12 rivalries with both the “Civil War” between Oregon and Oregon State and the Apple Cup between Washington State and Washington. Also that afternoon, Marshall looks for revenge against WKU, which spoiled the Herd’s bid for a perfect season late last November (12:00 PM ET, FOX Sports 1).
