CFB TV Selections for 10/17/15 (Week Seven)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times on 10/17 from the twelve day selection process that most TV networks adhere to.  Please understand that games can be held until next Sunday if a broadcaster wants to wait on the results of the 10/10 games. 

The list of available TV windows are based on media websites, TV listings and press releases.  They can change based on the needs of the broadcaster or the conference.

Here's what I guessed, which will prove to be incorrect, and the schedule for week seven.  Games that have already been set for TV are listed on the schedule page and not listed here.  I'll update the schedule page when all / nearly all decisions are made.

I have never been able to understand the Pac-12 picks. It seems like Fox consistently gets shorted. I would have thought that Arizona State at Utah and Oregon at Washington were the two best games, and ESPN gets them both while Fox gets Arizona at Colorado - and that's after ESPN already got the UCLA-Stanford game on Thursday night.

I've mostly stopped trying to understand them, but consider that FS1 will have MLB the next couple weeks so their space to carry CFB is limited. FOX has only used 11 of its 22 allocated selections, counting Black Friday. ESPN has used 13 of its 22, so FOX may have a few more selections in the bank for November.
