CFB TV Guesses for 11/23

11/23 Schedule

* FOX broadcast network is only listing one CFB game for 11/23 at this time.  I guess they pick a Pac-12 game but I have no idea anymore.  FOX's contract says they have to do eight games on their broadcast network.  Maybe they compromised for this season, maybe its an average of eight but I think the word "average" would have been stated.  I'd reach out to the Pac-12, but I don't think I'm going to get a good answer.  I really don't know.
* By selecting two Pac-12 games for 11/23, FOX would be out of 12 day selections for the Pac-12.  They would have ND-Stanford on 11/30, which they selected before the season started.  ESPN, by selecting two games, has one available for 11/30.
* The ACC has a doubleheader in their RSN package
* FSN does not have any scheduled Big 12 or C-USA windows.
* NASCAR duties for ESPN have ended for the year, so an extra window at 3:30pm ET has opened up.
* With LSU-Alabama not a close game, at least by the final score, I think CBS finally gives Missouri a look.  I am aware that some affiliate has the A&M-LSU game in the guide data. Missouri is leading the SEC East after all and I believe a win clinches it for them.  I don't think CBS has a six day hold left to wait and see.
* Baylor-Oklahoma St. looks like a good choice for the ABC primetime game, but there are a few good choices in the Pac-12 and we could see both this game and a few Pac-12 choices (Oregon-Arizona, Arizona St.-UCLA, Washington-Oregon St. and Cal-Stanford) get placed into six day holds.
* Pac-12 Network says they have game telecasts at 3pm ET and 10:30pm ET.  That might not hold up, but they'll have two games.
* To accommodate USC-Colorado as a night game, I moved the ESPN2 window to 10pm.
* I could see a six day pick being used on the Duke-Wake Forest and Virginia-Miami (FL) games.  Winner of Miami-Duke on 11/16 gets the better TV slot.
* Opened up the 12pm ESPNEWS slot for the American
* Decided to give Fresno St. the 7pm ET slot on ESPN2.  The Bulldogs are off on 11/16 so there's no danger of a loss between now and next Sunday.
