I wonder if fox is trying to find a couple of teams to agree to play each other on 10/17 so they can have a noon game

Not sure what the Fox game of the week will be.

Of all the games this week, the Friday evening games (esp. BYU/Houston) look the most appealing to me. In addition to the Miss. St/A&M game.

I’m guessing on of the MLB playoff games will be on FOX. There could be two playoff games on the 17th if necessary.
