CFB TV Confirmations for 2019 Week 9 (10/26/19)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 10/26 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 Eight 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)

That is 5 11am kickoffs in a row for Oklahoma. Has any other P5 program had to endure that?

Smackdown on FOX.
OSU/Northwestern on FS1.
ALCS postponed to Friday.

Does this mean OSU/Northwestern gets bumped to BTN? Friday night traffic was already going to be a disaster...and now it might all be for a BTN game, lol.
