What’s the best rivalry in all of sports?
While there’s no shortage of answers, if you ask any college football fanatic — any who doesn’t reside deep inside SEC Country, at least — Michigan-Ohio State would be a quick answer, potentially the first to come up. FOX knows this, so when the network acquired the Big Ten Tier 1 rights a year ago and received the first pick of Big Ten games to televise, the choice was easy.
FOX went with The Game.

This change to FOX is coming a year after ESPN took its College GameDay experience to a whole other level prior to the Michigan-Ohio State matchup, providing five hours of coverage, which started at 7 a.m. ET.
As the tweet also points to, Michigan State-Notre Dame will also be televised on FOX. The network made the announcement at its annual upfront presentation on Monday.
