New York – As its massive October continues, FOX Sports teams up with Twitter and Wendy’s to deliver fans a first-of-its kind opportunity to produce portions of its college football coverage beginning with Saturday’s Red River Showdown between No. 22 Texas and Oklahoma on FOX.
Coverage of the annual rivalry begins at 10:00 AM ET with BIG NOON KICKOFF hosted by Rob Stone with analysts Brady Quinn, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart and Urban Meyer. SPEAK FOR YOURSELF co-host and former Texas linebacker Emmanuel Acho joins the pregame show with live segments from Dallas and presents an original feature on the rivalry’s history through his eyes.
Saturday’s edition of BIG NOON KICKOFF includes the #WendysTwitterTopic, giving viewers the chance to choose a segment of the pregame show via a @CFBONFOX Twitter poll.
Once the Longhorns and Sooners kick off at noon ET, play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson, analyst Joel Klatt and reporter Jenny Taft call the action live from Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas. During the game, the #WendysViewersChoiceCam gives viewers the power to choose how they want to watch the game by voting for one of four camera options to be streamed on Twitter at @CFBONFOX for the duration of the contest.
FOX Sports, Twitter and Wendy’s continue their collaboration for select games throughout the college football season with sponsored moments recapping big games, Q&As with FOX Sports broadcasters and real-time game highlights.
