CFB TV Guesses for 2015 Week Nine (10/29/15 - 10/31/15)

* CBS pre-selected Georgia vs. Florida and will not have a 12 day selection.  ESPN, for all intents and purposes, has the first 12 day selection for the SEC this week.  CBS might have taken Georgia-Florida anyways, so that's another debate for another time.
* Michigan at Minnesota is set as a night game on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.
* If you wanted to put Notre Dame at Temple at night on ABC, and it might be the best matchup record-wise, I think you would end up doing the following:

  • Reverse mirror on ESPN2 with Michigan at Minnesota (has to stay at 8pm)
  • Move USC at California to ESPN
  • Syracuse at Florida St. moves to 12pm on ABC, or Ole Miss at Auburn moves to 12pm on ESPN with another noon game moving to ABC, or they move Syracuse at Florida St. to 3:30pm and move a 3:30pm game to 12pm.

* I did not schedule a 3:30pm BTN game as listings for the channel only have a 12pm game.
* I moved up the 11pm FS1 window by 30 minutes.
* The need to get Utah and UCLA two Pac-12 Networks appearances in the next five games is the reason why both of their games, particularly Utah's game (though Oregon St. isn't very good), goes to the Pac-12 Networks.
* You might see a network flex decision made on the Ole Miss at Auburn & South Carolina at Texas A&M games.  Winner of Texas A&M at Ole Miss on ESPN, loser on SEC Network.
* At one point, the American Sports Network website had a MAC football telecast window listed for 10/31.  It currently does not.  I've listed a selection in the event they have a game.

Here is what is already set for television.  All times Eastern.
