CFB TV Confirmations for 2017 Week 8 (10/21/17)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 10/21 from the twelve day selection process that most TV networks adhere to.  Please understand that games can be held until next Sunday if a broadcaster wants to wait on the results of the Week Seven games.  Most conferences have the possibility of having all or part of their games held for a six day hold of the start time.

The list of available TV windows are based on media websites, TV listings and press releases.  They can change based on the needs of the broadcaster or the conference.
Here's what I guessed based on the available openings (they'll prove to be incorrect) and here is the current schedule for the week as several FBS games do have their time & television/webcast assignments already accounted for. 

(EDIT: This was filled out well after 10/21 selections were made, mostly for me so I could remember who was set aside for a six day hold.)
