CFB TV Confirmations for 2018 Week 13 (11/23/18 - 11/24/18)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 11/23 & 11/24 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 Twelve games.  The Big 12 & Big Ten, and possibly the American, have the possibility of having all or part of their games held for a six day hold of the start time.  All other conferences have either had their games set for this week or have used their allotment of six day holds.

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.

Not too shocked at Notre Dame at USC being on ABC. Fox getting the Territorial Cup and the Holy War didn't surprise me either. I'd bet the the later has a 10:15 start.

10pm was the time it was given as the Pac-12 has a guideline around TV windows starting no later than 8pm local time. Similar to Washington at Utah earlier in the season & the Friday night game Utah hosted with another game on ESPN prior.
