    Big-time college football is coming to FX this fall, as the network has agreed to carry a slate of at least 13 Big 12, Conference USA and Pac-12 games.

    The package of Saturday NCAA football games will be culled from existing rights deals between Fox Sports and the three conferences. FX games are expected to air in the late afternoon and prime time windows.

    All told, Fox Sports will broadcast nearly 200 games across the Fox broadcast network and its regional sports networks, as well as on Fox College Sports and FX....

    All games on FX will be produced by Fox Sports. Plans for shoulder programming (pre- and post-game shows) are in the works....

    Question, don't know if anyone has an answer: FSN Rocky Mountain becomes "Root Sports" next week because its not a Fox product anymore, does this affect national FSN college football games that have aired in the past?

    Pretty sure that Root Sports is still a fox product. They are just rebranding.

    Actually Fox sold the 3 networks that are becoming Root Sports (Rocky Mtn., Northwest, one other) a couple years ago. Now owned by Directv and I think a few other owners.

    It hasn't affected their airing Fox programming yet, and the story from Fox/Root has been that the programming won't change just because of the name change
