Fox Sports plans to make games from the college football Bowl Championship Series available online.

The AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic on Jan. 1 will be simulcast for free on FoxSports.com.

Other full-length games will be made available after they’re played for $2.99 online through a number of sites, including Fox Sports on MSN, Fox Interactive Media’s Direct2Drive, Apple’s iTunes and Amazon’s Unbox. Preview shows and shortened highlight packages will be available for $1.99. Fans can get all of the programming for $19.99, or a package dedicated to a specific bowl game for $6.99.

“Sports fans are consuming content on new and different platforms every day and our goal is to expand the reach of Fox Sports and the BCS to as many of those media platforms as possible,” Fox Sports President Ed Goren said in a statement released Wednesday. “By working with great distribution partners both within the Fox family and externally, we have given college football fans an incredible amount of choice when looking for official BCS content online.”
