FOX Selects CU Season Opener at TCU For Big Noon Saturday Telecast
NEW YORK – The Colorado Football season opener at TCU will be televised by FOX as part of the network’s Big Noon Saturday telecast, it was announced Monday as part of the Upfront, a presentation showcasing the network’s concentrated portfolio of Sports, Entertainment, News and Streaming platforms to advertisers.
As part of the presentations at the Upfront, FOX announced two games for its Big Noon Saturday window, the CU-TCU game on September 2, the opening of the Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders era at Colorado, and the Ohio State at Michigan game on Nov. 25.
One of the flagship broadcast windows of college football, Big Noon Saturday was introduced by FOX in 2019 and the game is shown after Big Noon Kickoff, the network’s weekly college football preview show seen on FOX and FS1.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Big Noon Saturday broadcast window for our season opener at TCU,” CU Athletic Director Rick George said. “To be one of two games showcased and announced by FOX at the Upfronts shows how much excitement there is for the Coach Prime Era to begin on a National scale.”
This will be the Buffs second appearance in Big Noon Saturday and the Buffs are the first Pac-12 team to appear for a second time in the broadcast window, also having hosted Utah on Dec. 12, 2020, during the COVID-19 shortened season.
The other Pac-12 games on Big Noon Saturday were the Arizona State at USC game on Nov. 7, 2002, and the Oregon at Ohio State game on Sept. 11, 2021.
Season tickets for the 2023 season are sold out. Single game tickets will be available to the public on May 24 after a presale opportunity for VIP’s and season ticket holders. —
