If I were scheduling the television for 2012 Week 1...

Tried to take into account the US Open tennis event, along with NASCAR Nationwide & Indycar events.  I did move a few games off Saturday, due to network conflicts.  I've marked those that I moved with an asterisk.  My assumptions for the US Open were based on the television schedule used for the 2011 event.

South Carolina at Vanderbilt, 8pm (ESPN)
Texas A&M vs. Louisiana Tech, 8pm (ESPNU)
*Tulsa at Iowa St., 8pm (FSN)
Northern Colorado at Utah, 8:30pm (Pac-12)
*Northern Arizona at Arizona St., 10pm (Pac-12)

Boise St. at Michigan St., 8pm (ESPN)

Notre Dame vs. Navy, 9am (CBS) - Several sources point to a 9am ET / 2pm Dublin kick time

Will the Georgia dome host two games(NCST-UT & AUB_CLEM) in one day? That will be a logistical nightmare.

I agree and initially thought that it wasn't the case, that one would be played on Saturday and the other on Thursday or Monday, but its sounds like everyone is preparing for a doubleheader.
