Things to know in advance
* The literature provided for the FOX network schedule has their window at 12pm carrying a Big 12 game and the 3:30pm window showing a Pac-12 game.
* FS1 has MLB at 4pm ET & prelim matches for a PBC PPV at 8pm.
* Jon Wilner's Pac-12 Hotline had Pac-12 selection order in the following way: FOX, then FS1, ESPN and Pac-12 Networks
* Indiana is Michigan St.'s homecoming game and it will air at 3:30pm or 4pm.
* Middle Tennessee at Iowa will air on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.
* UNLV at Wyoming & Hawai'i at Nevada will air on ESPN's linear TV platforms or ESPN3.
* No night game window is scheduled for BTN as they will be carrying volleyball.
Decisions I made
* Knowing that FOX had the top Pac- 12 choice, I assumed the following:
- The listings I was sent that FOX's broadcast windows would be Big 12 & Pac-12 pushed me in the direction of the Big Ten's top choice airing on ABC. When you add in that BTN isn't scheduled to show a football game on primetime, it puts my focus on the best Big Ten game available in the ABC 7:30 pm slot.
- From there, I assumed that FOX also had the top Big 12 selection.
- I considered Ole Miss at Alabama for the CBS pick, but want as much flexibility to choose Alabama, & have the Iron Bowl in play, for the Thanksgiving weekend selections.
- The Pirates have a home game at night, which uses shared parking for Pitt football, and Syracuse scheduled a fan fest in late afternoon, so it stands to reason that both are early afternoon starts.
