Week 12 TV Predictions

Because Alabama used up its PPV option against Florida International, the game against Chattanooga has to be televised on ESPN Networks. CSS has a college basketball telecast in the evening, so I think that there could be a split SEC Network 12pm telecast.

LSU at Ole Miss, 3:30pm

Ohio St. at Michigan, 12pm
Oklahoma at Texas Tech, Oregon at Arizona, Penn St. at Michigan St., North Carolina at Boston College 3:30pm
Kansas at Texas, 8pm

Iowa at Minnesota, 12pm
Kansas St. at Nebraska, 7:45pm

Duke at Miami (FL), 12pm
Kentucky at Georgia, 7:30pm

Baylor at Texas A&M, 12:30pm
Arizona St. at UCLA, 6:30pm

California at Stanford, 10pm

Maryland at Florida St., 12pm
Louisville at USF, 3:30pm
Chattanooga at Alabama, 7pm

Big Ten
Purdue at Indiana & Wisconsin at Northwestern, 3:30pm

Arkansas at Mississippi St., 12pm SEC
Vanderbilt at Tennessee, 12pm SEC
Virginia at Clemson, 12pm Raycom
Rutgers at Syracuse, 12pm Big East
Iowa St. at Missouri, 12:30pm Fox College Sports
NC State at Virginia Tech, 1:30pm ESPN360
Oregon St. at Washington St., 6:30pm FSN NW

Tulsa at Southern Miss has already been confirmed as CBS College Sports C-USA flex pick

Cal and Stanford alums have told the respective athletic departments that a nighttime Big Game is not acceptable, so that game will not be late. It will go in either the 12:30 Pacific or 3:30/4:00 Pacific spot.

There have been several cases where the ABC San Francisco affiliate, KGO, has been allowed to pre-empt the 12:30 ABC Pac-10 regional telecast with a local telecast of the Big Game, shown on KGO only.

2007 Versus, 4pm
2006 FSN, 12pm
2005 ABC, 4pm (West coast only)
2004 FSN, 12:30pm
2003 KGO, 12:30pm (interesting that both Oregon St.-Oregon and UCLA-USC were televised by ABC in the same window)
2002 KGO, 12:30pm
2001 KGO, 12:30pm
2000 No TV (???), 12:30pm

What about using ESPN Classic for one of the SEC games instead of an east/west SEC Network split? They showed a South Carolina game on Classic earlier this year.
