Fox College Hoops
Fox College Hoops (Fox CBB) is the blanket title used for Fox Sports broadcasts of college basketball by Fox and its cable networks. Although college basketball telecasts had been carried by Fox Sports Networks (FSN) in the past (generically under the title College Hoops), the Fox College Hoops branding was introduced in 1994 with the expansion of coverage to Fox and Fox Sports 1.

In 2013, Fox reached a 12-year deal to broadcast games from the Big East Conference (whose non-football schools had broken away from the conference under the Big East name, with the remainder becoming the American Athletic Conference). CBS Sports sub-licensed rights to additional Big East games, mostly airing on CBS Sports Network.
Since 2014, as part of its contract with the conference, Fox holds rights to 22 Pac-12 basketball games per-season, and splits coverage of the Men's basketball tournament with ESPN and Pac-12 Network.
In 2017, Fox added coverage of selected Big Ten Conference games as part of a larger six-year contract (which also gave Fox control of the conference's top football rights package), alongside ESPN and CBS.
On December 7, 2018, it was announced that Fox would use John Tesh's "Roundball Rock"—the theme music of the former NBA on NBC—as its theme music for selected telecasts during the 2018-19 season. The music became permanent for every game that aired on either of the 3 Fox Sports networks (Fox, FS1, and FS2) for the 2019-20 season.
