Nebraska Visits Oregon in First Half of FOX College Football Doubleheader
NEW YORK, NY – FOX Sports presents the biggest conference matchup of the weekend on Saturday night in prime time, when No. 6 USC hosts No. 14 Stanford in a crucial early Pac-12 Conference showdown at 8:30 PM ET on the FOX broadcast network. Play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson, analyst Joel Klatt and sideline reporter Jenny Taft call the action live from Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Saturday’s FOX College Football doubleheader begins at 4:00 PM ET with a half-hour edition of FOX COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREGAME hosted by Rob Stone alongside analysts Matt Leinart, Robert Smith and Dave Wannstedt from FOX Sports’ Los Angeles studio. Action gets underway at 4:30 PM ET as Joe Davis, Brady Quinn and Bruce Feldman are live from Autzen Stadium for Nebraska at Oregon, the first major test for new Ducks head coach Willie Taggart.
College football on FS1 this week kicks off Friday at 7:00 PM ET with an hour-long pregame show leading into Ohio at Purdue at 8:00 PM ET. During Friday’s pregame, Feldman checks in from Eugene, Ore., with an update on how college football games could be impacted by wildfires in the state, and Boilermakers quarterback David Blough sits down with Cooper Manning in another edition of the Manning Minute.
Also on Friday’s pregame lineup, ahead of the big USC-Stanford matchup on Sunday, Leinart, a former USC quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and newly selected member of the College Football Hall of Fame, catches up with current Trojans signal-caller Sam Darnold. Then at halftime of the Boilermakers-Bobcats matchup, Jenny Taft profiles USC long-snapper Jake Olson. Olson, who has been blind since age 12, talks with Taft after taking the field for the Trojans in last weekend’s win. Taft also sits down with USC coach Clay Helton and Western Michigan coach Tim Lester.
The action continues Saturday with games on FS1, FS2, FSN and BTN, including a pair of ranked teams as No. 19 K-State hosts Charlotte at 12:00 PM ET on FSN, and No. 9 Wisconsin welcomes Florida Atlantic at 12:00 PM ET on BTN.
