CFB TV Six Day Guesses for 11/16.

  • Oklahoma St. at Texas, to me, is still the top Big 12 game since Texas Tech has lost two conference games.  It goes to FOX in primetime, assuming neither OK St. nor Texas stumbles on Saturday.
  • As much as I think Baylor should be shown on broadcast TV, I think Baylor-Texas Tech will end up on FOX Sports 1 with the Utah-Oregon game on FOX to help them fulfill their Pac-12 contractual obligations.  The stumbles of the Red Raiders are the contributing factor.
    • I do not know if FOX will again have a doubleheader on the broadcast network on 11/23.  If they do, plans could change as they'll have another opportunity to fulfill Pac-12 obligations.  We might find out tomorrow as many TV services start to populate their listings for 11/23.
  • Assuming an Auburn win, I believe they'll fill the CBS slot.  After that, an Alabama win should put them in the primetime ESPN slot.  If they lose to LSU, it probably depends on the results of Mississippi St.-Texas A&M and Florida-Vanderbilt and whether that makes Florida-South Carolina any more attractive to TV.
  • I really don't see Florida St. losing.  Even if they do, it wouldn't move me to push that game to ESPNU and elevate Miami-Duke.  The winner of Miami-Duke will have a great deal of influence on the ACC Coastal race.
