Guessing on a C-USA game draft

Because at some point, the C-USA lawsuit will end...

If I were going to guess how the C-USA "game" draft for FOX Sports Media Group and CBS Sports Network were going to go, it might be something like this:

F/X
9/3 UCLA at Houston

FSN
9/1 Miss St. at Memphis*
9/10 Virginia Tech at ECU
9/17 Oklahoma St. at Tulsa
9/24 SMU at Memphis (2)
9/29 Houston at UTEP*
10/8 ECU at Houston (2)
10/15 UCF at SMU (2)
10/20 UCF at UAB*
10/22 SMU at Southern Miss (2)
10/27 Rice at Houston*
10/29 Southern Miss at UTEP (2)
11/5 Southern Miss at ECU (2)
11/10 Houton at Tulane*
11/12 UCF at Southern Miss (2)
11/17 Southern Miss at UAB*
11/19 UCF at ECU (2)
11/25 UTEP at UCF*
11/26 Houston at Tulsa (2)
11/26 ECU at Marshall (2)

CBSSN
9/10 Boston College at UCF
9/10 UTEP at SMU
9/17 Tulane at UAB
9/24 Virginia Tech at Marshall
10/1 North Carolina at ECU
10/8 Mississippi St. at UAB
10/15 UTEP at Tulane (2)
10/15 UCF at SMU
10/22 Marshall at Houston (2)
10/29 SMU at Tulsa
11/3 Tulsa at UCF*
11/5 Southern Miss at ECU
11/12 Navy at SMU (2)
11/26 Memphis at Southern Miss (2)
11/26 Rice at SMU (2)

The games with an asterisk have been slated for TV.  From an exchange I had with the Orlando Sentinel's beat writer, it appears that all Thursday & Friday games, except for the Tulsa-UCF game, will be on FSN.

FOX gets the 1st 10 game selections, then CBS Sports Network takes another 10.  After that FOX gets another ten selections, noted with a (2).  I then gave CBS Sports Network more selections after FOX's final ten to fill out several open time slots based on my earlier blog entry.

Also I'm sticking by the original early season selections, which leaves the Purdue-Rice game without national TV.  Suppose it could be changed out for the UTEP-SMU game.
Here's a breakdown by team
ECU - 7
Houston - 6
Marshall - 3
Memphis - 3
Rice - 1
Southern Miss - 7
SMU - 7
Tulane - 3
Tulsa - 4
UAB - 4
UCF - 8
UTEP - 5

Thoughts?
