Penn State's trip to Columbus this season might be on Fox if the network's graphics package is to be believed. Fox spent Monday afternoon showcasing its year ahead as part of its upfront. Upfronts can best be described as an advertising based look-ahead at programming for television networks.

While the network didn't directly address the game, an eagled-eyed observer would have noticed that Penn State and Ohio State were among the featured contests showcased around the room. Fox recently purchased half of the Big Ten's media rights as part of an overall package that will see the conference bring in just shy of 2.7 billion per reports.

ESPN, the second half of the rights deal, will cary its fair share of big games as well, but Fox currently has the first choice to pick its slate of games. Each entity will broadcast 25 football and 50 basketball games over its family of networks.

Similar, it's possible that Fox will relegate the game to FS1, but given the probable high-profile nature of the meeting between the two teams, it stands to reason that the primary channel will carry the game.

Penn State last played on Fox this past fall at the Big Ten Championship game in a come from behind victory over Wisconsin.
