FS1 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREGAME Highlights College Football’s Newest and Best Tradition at Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium
NEW YORK, NY – FOX College Football returns this weekend with some of the biggest matchups and stories from around the sport. Highlighting the Week 5 schedule, Saturday’s doubleheader on the FOX broadcast network kicks off with Iowa at Michigan State at 4:00 PM ET, followed by No. 15 Oklahoma State at Texas Tech at 8:00 PM ET.
FOX Sports’ lead college football broadcast team of play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson, analyst Joel Klatt and sideline reporter Jenny Taft is live in Lubbock, Texas, to call the Big 12 shootout between the Cowboys and Red Raiders. In East Lansing, Mich., Aaron Goldsmith, Brady Quinn and Bruce Feldman are on hand for the Big Ten matchup between the Hawkeyes and Spartans.
Another Big Ten showdown kicks off this weekend’s action tonight on FS1, as Illinois hosts Nebraska with Justin Kutcher, Mark Helfrich and Petros Papadakis in the booth and Jennifer Hale on the sidelines. Coverage begins at 7:00 PM ET with FS1 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREGAME hosted by Rob Stone and analysts Matt Leinart, Robert Smith and Dave Wannstedt. Friday’s pregame show includes an emotional look at college football’s newest tradition – fans at Kinnick Stadium waving to patients at the newly opened University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Coach Kirk Ferentz and the Hawkeyes have long been involved with the organization, and with the new structure overlooking the field, what started out as an idea on social media is now one of the most meaningful gestures in all of sports.
The action continues Saturday on FS1, as coverage of Maryland at Minnesota begins at 11:30 AM ET, followed by another edition of “Pac-12 After Dark,” as Oregon hosts Cal. This weekend’s full schedule of games on FOX, FS1 and BTN, including broadcasters, can be found by clicking HERE.
