CFB TV Confirmations for 2019 Week 8 (10/19/19)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 10/19 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 Seven 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 (10/12)
American: 3
Big 12: 4
Big Ten: 3 (10/12)
SEC: 2 (10/19)
Pac-12: 4

Note: The 10:30pm ET FS1 window was in listings for 10/19 but per Jon Wilner of Bay Area News Group, ESPN has two selections and Pac-12 Networks have three for the five Pac-12 games, so the FS1 window could disappear.

Florida at South Carolina

Do you know if there is a particular reason why uk/uga can't be held at 12pm just curious

I think ESPN already decided that if they are left with it, they want it in primetime. I'd be leaning heavily towards Florida-South Carolina as the CBS game right now with the huge upset in Athens. Surprised CBS didn't announce it already on TV this afternoon.
