Guesses for CFB TV Six Day Picks for 11/25/16 & 11/26/16 Games, Plus 12/3/16

Week 13

Friday 11/25

In the end, I think Nebraska at Iowa stays in the ESPN family and on ABC as the Huskers have a shot of the Big Ten West if they win and Wisconsin loses to Minnesota.  North Carolina is also in need of help from Virginia on Saturday to win the ACC Coastal, so their game has a bit more relevance than Houston at Memphis since Navy has clinched the American's West Division.  Western Michigan won vs. Buffalo and if they win again vs. Toledo, ESPN2 has the MAC championship game to show them again.

12pm ABC: NC State at North Carolina
12pm ESPN: Houston at Memphis
3:30pm ABC: Nebraska at Iowa
4pm ESPNEWS: Louisiana Tech at Southern Miss
5pm ESPNU: Toledo at Western Michigan

Saturday 11/26

With it confirmed that Notre Dame at USC resides somewhere on a ESPN platform, I do wonder if it will get placed away from the Iron Bowl or if they would concede that time slot and place a lesser profile game there (no disrespect intended, Wisconsin).  I assumed ND at USC and South Carolina at Clemson would be the other two ABC games earlier, but I'm less certain now.

12pm ESPN: Virginia at Virginia Tech
12pm ESPN2: East Carolina at Temple
12pm CBSSN: UCF at USF
3:30pm ABC: Minnesota at Wisconsin
3:30pm ESPN: Florida at Florida St.
3:30pm ESPN2: Navy at SMU
3:30pm ESPNU: Duke at Miami (FL)
3:30pm BTN: Penn St. at Michigan St.
7pm ESPN: South Carolina at Clemson
7pm ESPN2: UCLA at California
7pm ESPNU: Kentucky at Louisville
8pm ABC: Notre Dame at USC
8pm ESPNEWS: Western Kentucky at Marshall
10:15pm ESPN2: Wyoming at New Mexico
10:15pm ESPNU: Utah St. at BYU

Week 14 (Saturday 12/3)

Since ESPN has set their start times and TV networks for their four championship games on Saturday and ABC is being used for both the American and ACC championships, ESPN2 is open to be used either for Sun Belt, FCS playoffs or college basketball that ESPN3, SEC Network PLUS or ACC Network Extra had on their schedules.  With the Big 12 championship game re-activating in 2017, ESPN will have either the Pac-12 or Big 12 championship for the next several years, along with the Sun Belt's championship game starting in 2018.

I'm not going to waste your time with a separate guesses post.  For the three Big 12 games:

12pm FOX: Oklahoma St. at Oklahoma
12pm FS1: Baylor at West Virginia
3:30pm FS1: Kansas St. at TCU

Would ABC consider airing Virginia-Virginia Tech as a RM? That game has a lot on the line.
