Fox Week

The MLB playoffs begin. Tom Brady returns. Middleweight champ Michael Bisping fights Dan Henderson in UFC 204. Oklahoma and Texas meet in the Red River Showdown. Weeks like this are what sports fans live for—and it's the perfect time to launch the digital partnership between SPORTS ILLUSTRATED and Fox Sports. More than a year in the making, the combo joins together two of the most powerful voices in sports to drive the sports conversation in real time. It also brings some of sports journalism's top talent to Fox's biggest TV events. On Oct. 7, SI's Andy Staples will sit with Fox's Joel Klatt during Klatt's college football live show from the grounds of the Texas State Fair in Dallas to preview Oklahoma-Texas and the entire weekend in college football. For the MLB playoffs, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED senior writer Tom Verducci and Fox's Ken Rosenthal will join the network's digital NLCS pre-pregame show. You'll also see SPORTS ILLUSTRATED content on, and SI's and Fox Sports' social media teams will work together to keep you better informed about the players and games that you love.
