FX to carry weekly college football game

We truly live in the greatest era to be college football fan. During the fall, there are more college football games on television than ever before, ensuring every fan that just about any game they want to watch, they can. Now it seems that we'll all be getting at least one more game a week to feast our eyes upon.

It was announced on Monday that the cable network FX, which is owned by Fox, will begin airing one game a week during the 2011 season.
Cable channel FX will broadcast a weekly college football game during the coming season.
The Fox-owned network said Monday it would air at least 13 games involving teams from the Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA.
FX is available in more than 99 million homes. The channel has shown other sports in the past, including Major League Baseball and NASCAR.
It makes sense that this would happen, since Fox has broadcast rights for the Big 12 and Pac-12. Instead of trying to fit a bunch of games on their regional Fox Sports stations, why not use a network that is already in so many homes? What would make it even better is if they surrounded the games on the schedule with reruns of Louie, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Sons of Anarchy and Archer. As a matter of fact, I don't see any reason why Sterling Archer shouldn't be doing the play-by-play.

This would be best suited for conference USA not the Pac-12. I don't like ESPN for the Pac-12 either because the night time games are beyond annoying if you live in the east. Imagine looking foward to your team playing then it being some regional teams instead of what was on the schedule. Or these games that end at like 11 at night. The pac-12 needs to find a place that will alow mid-day games.

Who watches FX on saturdays? It comes with every TV package just about I would rather watch a conference USA game than watch Transformers Revenge of the Fallen for the hundredth time. Would be good for the station and conference USA to get a game every week.

I can speak for many people when if I'm at home watching TV and there is only one football game on. If those two teams aren't horrible the channel will stay on football.

Fox Sports already puts on the worst production product for any college football game with the worst broadcast teams. So why not one up themselves and embarss FX.
