CFB TV Guesses for 10/11

Current schedule for Week Seven

* CBS has two SEC games on 10/11.  One at 12pm and one at 3:30pm.  When this happens, CBS does not have the top two choices, but they choose first and fourth.  In between, ESPN gets to choose.  I am not sure if ESPN can/will/is allowed to use either of those two picks in between to place games on SEC Network.
* It is realistic for a SEC six day pick for the Auburn-Mississippi St. & Ole Miss-Texas A&M games in my opinion.  Said that last week too though.  I would think one for the Pac-12 would be possible, but one was used for 10/4.
* FOX only has a 3:30pm window.  Game 1 of the NLCS in the evening.  I am moderately curious as to whether FOX would attempt the same ratings grab that they did last year by pushing a better matchup to FS1, in last year's case it was Oregon-Washington.
* I think FOX has the top choice of the Pac-12, based on ESPN likely choosing Texas vs. OU for ABC at 12pm as the top Big 12 choice & Washington St.-Stanford being set aside by ESPN for a Friday night game.  Kinda curious too if FOX would put Baylor at TCU on FS1 instead at 12pm instead of West Virginia at Texas Tech.  There is no exclusivity in Big 12 telecast windows, so FOX could air whatever game they want opposite ABC or ESPN's game.
* FS1 also only has windows at 12pm & 3:30pm ET due to a simulcast of NLCS Game 1 from a metrics-based perspective.
* Per the MSG & YES websites, there will be a 12pm-3:30pm ACC RSN doubleheader, plus a SEC game at 7:30pm per Bob Rathbun and other FOX RSNs.
* ABC does not have a primetime window due to NASCAR.  Games at 12pm & 3:30pm
* Penn St. at Michigan is set for a 7pm start.  Same with Indiana at Iowa at 12pm.  Network decision is the only item being decided here.
* Pac-12 Networks only has one scheduled window at 4pm ET.
* Some TV listings do not have a 2nd TV window on BTN on 10/11. lists a four hour TBA window at 4:30pm.  We shall see.  To make things work here, I only used one game on BTN at 12pm.
