CFB TV Confirmations for 2017 Week 6 (10/7/17)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 10/7 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 Week Five 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.  

All times Eastern.

With ABC/ESPN taking three B1G games, plus the addition of Miami-FSU for this week, I'm guessing they add back the 3:30 ESPN slot, push the SEC ESPN game back to 7:00, and go with a 10:30 Pac-12 game.

Can't understand why FOX passed on a second B1G game this week if they had the option to take one (Nebraska-Wisconsin).

Wow, every Big 12 game is on a FOX network this week. Since the Big 12's ABC/FOX deal began, I wonder if this has ever happened before where all games were on a single network family?

@arc727 - Look at week 14 last year for all Big 12 games on FOX & FS1

Maybe I should have specified except Championship weekend. :P

Any thoughts on Northwestern's game times for 10/14 at Maryland and 10/21 v. Iowa.

I do guesses about 13 days out from the game date and not earlier since those decisions are based on game results in most cases.
