DirecTV offers a "sports pack" lineup add-on that includes extra Comcast Sports and FOX Sports channels:

Does Comcast offer a similar package?  The Comcast Sports package that I see only has a few channels and I don't see the regional FOX channels - those channels carry a lot of the College games I want to watch.

In Seattle the Sports & Entertainment package includes the Fox College Sports Atlantic, Central, and Pacific channels.

Yeah but however those Fox channels aren't the regional ones that is being asked out (ie: Fox Sports North, Comcast Sports New England, etc).

That's true (and unfortunate) -- I just posted what is available.

Re: does Comcast offer the channels from DirecTV "sports package"?

IIRC there was rumors of the regional channels being added down the road on Comcast. Of course that means Comcast will have a good excuse to raise the price on the sports & entertainment package.
