CFB TV Guesses for 2015 Week Eleven (11/10/15 - 11/14/15)

Here is what is already set for television.  

* CBS has a doubleheader including a 12pm game.  CBS will take their 3:30pm game first, ESPN will select two games, then CBS will come back for their 12pm game.
* If CBS were to select Alabama at Mississippi St., it would lock them out of taking the Iron Bowl as Alabama would have reached their maximum of five appearances on CBS, unless they were to play one of their exceptions to get Alabama on six times.  CBS may elect to wait until after the result of LSU at Alabama on 11/7 to make their choice.
* As we've seen for several weeks, the Pac-12 Networks windows are not set in stone.  They could move around.
* I dropped the ESPN2 10:30pm window.  Part of that is due to placing Memphis at Houston on ABC.  I thought a game between two ranked teams was worth being shown on network TV, plus the Big Ten games do not require 100% national coverage outside of the 3:30pm ABC window.
* If Baylor at Oklahoma airs on ABC, it would be the Sooners' fifth ABC/ESPN appearance.  It is my understanding that a Big 12 school cannot appear more that six times on either ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU as part of the Big 12 TV deals, so FOX should end up with either the TCU or Oklahoma St. game in coming weeks.
* I tossed in several weeknight games.
* EDIT: I guess Syracuse has some festivities planned that would affect parking areas for season ticket holders.  You could flip the places of NC State at Florida & Clemson at Syracuse if this is an issue.

Swap Kentucky/Vanderbilt and BYU/Missouri, and it looks a lot more realistic. Especially with the game at Arrowhead.
