CFB TV Guesses for Week Thirteen (11/18 - 11/22)

Week 13 Schedule
Available TV Windows

* I am assuming Indiana at Ohio St. will air on BTN to fill a requirement that each Big Ten school has to appear on BTN at least twice and one appearance must be a intraconference game.
* BTN has both 12pm & 3:30pm ET telecast windows
* 11/22's SEC Network schedule has a multiple game window at 12pm ET with one game on the main channel and one game on their alternate channel, plus a game regionally on FSN at the same time.
* Arizona St. already has nine scheduled appearances as part of the ESPN or FOX packages, including the upcoming Territorial Cup, so the Washington St. game should be on Pac-12 Networks.  
* With tentative windows at 1pm & 4:30pm ET, it signals to me that the Pac-12 will have a primetime window.
* Gave FOX two Pac-12 selections in order to place one Big 12 game on ABC & ESPN to only take one Pac-12 game.  In my mind, that would allow ESPN to take two Pac-12 games next week with FOX selecting one Pac-12 game on Saturday 11/29.
* I think USC at UCLA airs in primetime on the east coast and there really isn't a game to replace it with.  UCLA needs a loss from Arizona St. to have a chance at the Pac-12 South as they hold tiebreakers over both Arizona schools.
* Possible six day decisions:
  • Miami (FL) at Virginia & Boston College at Florida St. - pending outcome of Florida St. at Miami (FL)
  • Oklahoma St. at Baylor.   Could see a decision being made between Boston College at Florida St. or Oklahoma St. at Baylor for either the 3:30pm or 8pm slots on ABC.
    • One item to look out for is both Oklahoma St.-Baylor & Boston College-Florida St. at 8pm without a reverse mirror.  In the event they wanted to get one of the Mountain West or American games currently on ESPN3 exclusively onto ESPNEWS at 4pm.  Tulane at East Carolina or USF at Memphis could be slid up to ESPN2 or ESPNU with Fresno St. at Nevada or SMU at UCF on ESPNEWS.
  • Minnesota at Nebraska, Wisconsin at Iowa & Michigan St. at Maryland - pending outcomes of Ohio St. at Minnesota, Nebraska at Wisconsin & Michigan St. at Maryland
