CFB TV Selections for 2016 Week Twelve (11/15/16 - 11/19/16)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 11/15, 11/16 & 11/19 from the twelve day selection process that most TV networks adhere to (yes, the two midweek dates are closer than twelve days, I know).  Please understand that games can be held until next Sunday if a broadcaster wants to wait on the results of the Week Eleven games.  Most conferences have the possibility of having all or part of their games held for a six day hold of the start time.

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 based on the available openings (they'll prove to be incorrect) and here is the current schedule for the week as several FBS games do have their time & television/webcast assignments already accounted for.  

Six Day Holds
  • Texas at Kansas - ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU at either 12pm ET or 3:30pm ET
  • Kansas St. at Baylor, Oklahoma St. at TCU & Oklahoma at West Virginia - 12pm FS1 (one will air here), 12pm ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU, 3:30pm ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU, 7pm ESPN or 8pm ABC are the options for the two ABC/ESPN games.
  • Maryland at Nebraska, Northwestern at Minnesota & Wisconsin at Purdue - 12pm or 3:30pm on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU/ESPNEWS or BTN.
  • Iowa at Illinois - BTN at either 12pm ET or 3:30pm ET
  • Florida St. at Syracuse & Clemson at Wake Forest - 12pm ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU/ESPNEWS, 3:30pm ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU, 4pm ESPNEWS, 7pm ESPN or 8pm ABC/ESPNEWS
  • Navy at East Carolina, USF at SMU, Tulsa at UCF - CBSSN 7pm (one will air here), 12pm ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU/NEWS, 3:30pm ABC/ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU, 4pm ESPNEWS, 7pm ESPN and 8pm ABC/ESPNEWS for the other three, plus possibility of ESPN3 at time of home team's choosing.
  • Oregon at Utah, USC at UCLA, Washington St. at Colorado, Stanford at California, Oregon St. at Arizona - 3:30pm on FOX, 10:30pm ESPN, then 2pm, 5:30pm & 10:30pm Pac-12 Networks in that order.

There must have been some arrangement regarding CBS not selecting the LSU-Florida game when it was rescheduled. Even so, I still don't see why CBS would select Missouri with a 2-7 record over Arkansas-Mississippi State or Ole Miss-Vanderbilt. I would have Missouri-Tennessee would have been an SEC Network game.
