From Multichannel News
Building on its earlier work with NASCAR and college basketball, Fox Sports is set to produce one college football game per week in 4K - for a total of 13 games.

Its first college gridiron production in 4K will take place this Saturday (Sept. 2) at noon ET, when the Maryland Terrapins visit the Texas Longhorns.

Other confirmed matchups that Fox Sports will produce in the pixel-packed format this season include Minnesota at Oregon State (Sept. 9); Northern Illinois at Nebraska (Sept. 16); UCLA at Utah (Nov 3); and Iowa at Nebraska (Nov. 24).

Fox Sports will distribute its full slate of college football games in 4K with DirecTV, which has been using its satellite TV platform to spearhead an ambitious strategy around the emerging video format.

"They've got the distribution, and they have the technology to move 4K from the remote [location] to the house," Michael Davies, Fox Sports's senior vice president of field and technical operations, said.
