RE: Fox gets OSU vs Michigan and other marquee matchups
based on this :
Other notable games there include Penn State-Ohio State, Notre Dame-Michigan State

would seem that ESPN/ABC gets the Oklahoma/Ohio St game like I expected.

I remember some espn lovers telling me a couple of months ago that fox was only getting a tiny little insignificant part of the Big 10 contract....a few meaningless games. Urban Meyer and Jim Harbaugh promoting fox as "the premiere home of the big 10" Hmmmmm.....

First pick of the Big 10 games every year for the contract and not every other year like a certain espn lover said on here...(SEC fan)

So ESPN gets
2nd pick of Big 10 games (fox)
2nd pick of Big 12 games (fox)
2nd pick of PAC 12 games (fox)
2nd pick of the SEC (CBS)
But espn gets 100% of the ACC games until 2035, is a big deal when espn is dropping subscribers like flies.

RE: Fox gets OSU vs Michigan and other marquee matchups
Wonder which of those marquee Fox games end up on FS1 - we know they didn't pay the big bucks to put all of the "A" games on Big Fox and only "B" and "C" games on FS1.

And Fox's Michigan-Ohio State rating will be a big test of Fox's ability to bring in ESPN/ABC-sized audiences for big games. Fox's rating for that game will be measured against the ABC broadcast for the same game last year, which drew 16.8 million viewers.

Now that Fox has so many of the biggest games, hopefully they can deliver comparable audience sizes on both Big Fox and FS1 and become a serious challenger. Personally, I'd like to someday be able to not cringe when I see that a game is on FS1, and be able to think that it's just as good as having the game on an ESPN channel.

WRONG...
Big Ten- Fox gets 7 weeks where they get the #1 choice, ESPN gets 6 weeks where they get the #1 choice. ESPN will get for instance this year Oklahoma @ Ohio St, which is by far the best OOC game for Big Ten this season.
Big 12- every odd year they get the #1 choice of games. This is odd year, so ESPN gets top choices each week.
I think Pac 12 is a lot more 50/50 than you say.

So it's no where near what you are saying. Not even remotely close.

Great news for Fox Sports. They have steadily added more and more quality inventory to their collection. They will, in time, become a legitimate contender to ESPN (which is a good thing).

Pac-12 division between ESPN and Fox is 50-50 for football. For basketball, ESPN gets twice as many Pac-12 games as Fox, which is why ESPN pays more than half of the rights fees.
