CFB TV Guesses for 11/28 & 11/29

Confirmed games
Available TV Windows

* SEC selections for 11/29 have already been taken care of & two MAC games are already set for ESPN3 on 11/28.
*Michigan at Ohio St. is a 12pm ET start. Network is the only decision being made.
* Because FOX took only one Pac-12 game for 11/22, they have two Saturday selections remaining & ESPN has one.
* If FOX were to carry Notre Dame at USC instead of ABC, it would be at 3:30pm.  I could envision ABC taking the Civil War instead in primetime and Baylor vs. Texas Tech as either part of the 3:30pm ABC/ESPN reverse mirror or on one of the two channels nationally.  BYU at California probably ends up on ESPNU at 10pm in a telecast window I didn't think would be needed as the Fremont Cannon game (Nevada-UNLV) I believe will be a day game.
* ABC regional with no reverse mirror, using Baylor-Texas Tech & Kentucky-Louisville, could be used if BTN carries only one game. Florida-Florida St. could air nationally on ESPN.
* In case you were wondering, the last time Notre Dame at USC did not air during east coast primetime was 2000.  Aired at 3:30pm nationally on ABC & was the only game their carried that day.  Courtesy of & ClassicTVSports.
* Notre Dame's visit to Stanford in '07 was also a 3:30pm ESPN game.
* Utah St. at Boise St. will decide the Mountain West's Mountain division.  Boise St. controls its own destiny and will host the West division winner.  If Utah St. wins, Colorado St. wins the Mountain division and hosts as CSU defeated Utah St. earlier this year.

Matt, if Air Force beats CSU, and USU beats BSU, then USU wins the division. Air Force beat Boise, so it is definitely a possibility.

Thanks. I admit that I wrote this post a few days back and only slightly tweaked it on Sundau, so I didn't go through everything and proofread it.
