Have you heard anything that indicates the Miss. State at Southern Miss game could move to Friday or is this simply your projection?

It is only a guess. No inside knowledge on that one. What I struggled with, a bit, was trying to balance

1) the lack of Saturday windows on FS1 except for 10pm ET
2) FOX does get the 1st ten choices from C-USA. No disrespect to USM, but Miss St. is a reason to get this game.
3) it is blazing hot at that time of year down south, though I did place UCF's game at 3:30pm on CBSSN.

I know USM hosted a 10pm ET start back in 2011 that ended close to 1:45am ET. Didn't think that was ideal for the potential opening FS1 could have at 10pm.
