CFB TV Confirmations for 2018 Week 7 (10/13/18)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 10/13 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 Six 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: 3 (one used on 10/6)
American: 2
Big 12: 4
Big Ten: 3 (one potentially being used on 10/13)

Wild with the FS1/BTN hold.Guessing FS1 picks first and BTN would pick 2nd. As I thought on Sunday, Minnesota/Ohio State or Michigan State/Penn State would be on FS1.

Hi Bonnie. As I understand it, one game is on ABC at 12 pm & the other is on ESPN2. 3:30pm is to be determined.

They've done these regional splits on ABC & ESPN2 for over a decade.
