Yesterday was quietly a big day for College Football. After a five month break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fox and ESPN began drafting what games their networks would broadcast during the upcoming 2020 season.
The college football game draft between Fox and ESPN – nirvana for college football nerds – resumed today after a 5 month hiatus. Selections were limited to our shared Big 12 rights, but it was still fun to be back on the clock.

According to Michael Mulvihill of Fox Sports, the selections on Monday for Fox were limited to the network’s “shared Big 12 rights,” meaning the high-profile games for each week during the season were likely being discussed.
Brandon Marcello of 247Sports would also release a report on the situation, stating that kickoff times for at least week one in the Power 5 could be released “over the next week to two weeks.” The announcement could also include games beyond week one in all conferences.
A Big 12 spokesperson would also tell 247Sports that television times for the “first wave” of Big 12 games are “imminent.”
Stay tuned to The Voice of Motown as we will bring you updates as soon as kickoff times are released.
