CFB TV Guesses for Week Nine (10/25/14)

Schedule for Week Nine

* Minnesota at Illinois & Maryland at Wisconsin are locked into 12pm ET starts as homecoming games.  Ohio St. at Penn St. was set for an 8pm start with the network televising the game being the only item in doubt
* Currently, BTN has a single 12pm ET window and there is an ACC RSN doubleheader at 12pm & 3:30pm.
* FOX has a 3:30pm ET game due to the World Series Game 4
* A reverse mirror for ABC/ESPN2 at 8pm is possible, depending on the game placed on ESPN2 at 8pm.  This also assumes that the ESPN2 (8pm) & ESPN (7pm & 10:30pm) evening windows are not flipped.
* I dropped the ESPNEWS 12pm window.  I was not expecting another ACC RSN doubleheader until I looked at TV listings for 10/25.
* With the SEC results of 10/11, I think you could make a case to air Mississippi St. at Kentucky on CBS.  The Wildcats are a quite 5-1.  LSU pulled out a victory at the end, and I'll give them a little more credit at the moment.

If you don't see a game listed here, please take a look at the link at the top.  Many games have their kickoff times set in advance.
