Some of the best football teams in the country take center stage on FOX Sports outlets, including a highly anticipated Nov. 30 contest that features two college football powerhouses as the Stanford Cardinal host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in Palo Alto.

FOX Sports 1 makes its college football debut with three straight days of action beginning Thursday, Aug. 29, when Utah of the Pac-12 hosts in-state rival Utah State (8:00 PM ET) in the first game of the network’s weekly Thursday night series.
