Notes on the 11/17 guesses
* There isn't much of a delineation to me between the ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU 12pm games so I could see them being set for times, but not a network
* Minnesota at Nebraska is virtually assured of BTN because the Cornhuskers haven't played a conference game on the network yet and their final regular season game vs. Iowa is on ABC.
* Big week for SEC PPV/local games.  Alabama used their PPV game earlier in the year, so they'll probably take the CSS slot.
* There's a lot to play around with when it comes to the Pac-12 & Big 12 and the ABC and FOX slots.  The general rule of thumb I've seemed to notice is that if ABC is airing a Big 12 game, FOX will only show theirs on FSN or F/X, if at all, with the exception of this past weekend where FOX and ABC had Big 12 games airing simultaneously (ABC was also carrying wall-to-wall Big 12 games this weekend) and 10/20.  The same seems to be holding true for the Pac-12.
* If Cincinnati-Rutgers was between two ranked teams, I might have tried to play around with moving it to a national stage, but it will remain the Big East Network 12pm game as it was selected before the season started.
* I do think Stanford-Oregon is the best game on the board and ABC will take that for primetime, leaving FOX to show the Crosstown Rivalry in the afternoon.  FOX will then get a chance to show Kansas St. in primetime.  Did not notice this, but Oregon had not yet appeared on FOX or ABC until the USC game, but I expect them to be there all of November.
