CFB TV Guesses for 10/20

The rest of the Week 8 schedule

* CBS has a non-exclusive 12pm SEC game in addition to their 3:30pm exclusive window.  The 12pm game is the 4th pick in the selection order, sandwiched around ESPN/ESPN2 selections.
* Iowa at Ohio St. is OSU's homecoming game and set for a 3:30pm kickoff.
* FOX has a 12pm window this week.  99.9% confident that it is going to be a Big 12 game.  I thought about putting Iowa St.-Baylor on there, but because Baylor has been blowing people out, I'd rather have a competitive game.
* If the reverse mirror ends up on ESPN, flip ESPN & ESPN2 network assignments at 3:30pm, 7pm, 7:45pm and 10:30pm
* Assume another ESPNEWS window
* Based on advance FOX RSN listings, the ACC RSN package will have a 3:30pm & 7pm doubleheader
* I think one of the late evening windows could be ditched on either ESPN2 or ESPNU
* If the Pac-12 Network is truly going to air men's water polo at 7:30pm ET, then ABC and the Pac-12 Network will air concurrent games.  Not sure that it happens if UCLA-Stanford is on ABC at 3:30pm.
* My goal was to preserve Florida St.-Clemson as the sole ABC primetime game.  I did want to get UCLA-Stanford a prime slot as well, but I did not want to cut into the 8pm audience, nor did I want to slot it in the late evening.  Figured that ABC regional against Iowa-Ohio St., which had to air at 3:30pm, with a reverse mirror was better than full national on ESPN.
