CFB TV Confirmations for 2018 Week 5 (9/29/18)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 9/29 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 Four 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 will 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. 

The number of six day holds available for each conference

ACC: 4

Now you have Ohio State-Penn State and Stanford-Notre Dame at the exact same time. I know everyone wants "prime time" games but maybe ABC should have thought about the fact that Stanford-Notre Dame was already scheduled at that time and scheduled OSU-PSU for 3:30pm?
