CFB TV Confirmations for 2018 Week 12 (11/14/18 - 11/17/18)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 11/14 & 11/17 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 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 MAC games on 11/14 could wait for the results of the 11/7 MAC games,

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: 0 (10/6, 10/27 & 11/10, 11/17)
American: ??? (10/27, 11/10 & 11/17)**
Big 12: 1 (11/3, 11/10, 11/17)
Big Ten: 1 (10/27 by FOX it appears, 11/10 & 11/17)
SEC: 1 (11/3 & 11/10)*
Pac-12: 0 (10/6 by FOX, 11/3 & 11/10 by ESPN, 11/17 by FOX)

* I forgot that three six day holds were used with the SEC last year, so one could be remaining.

** I remember reading the American had a max of two 6 day holds & they've used a 3rd.
