2020 Week Two CFB TV Guesses

If a game:

* is in bold, the network, time & date is confirmed
* is in italics, the network & date is confirmed, but not the start time
* is in red, I made the date change to accomodate TV and that date change is not confirmed by anyone.
* isn't listed, its likely to be streamed through various streaming platforms (C-USA or MW for Facebook, MW Network, ESPN3, ESPN+, CBS All-Access etc.).

NOTE: Boise St. at Air Force is not yet a scheduled game.  I've added it here as a possibility since the two schools are not scheduled to play another opponent.

So, in Week 1 & 2 you are giving the top pick for the Pac-12 both to FOX, with Michigan at Washington & Ohio State at Oregon? If I'm FOX I'm doing cartwheels! Where to you place ESPN top picks for the Pac-12?

I added something to the post that you can in through, the one labeled Early Season Guesses. Week 1 went to ESPN and the game is noted there.

FSU/Boise is in Week 3

Is ESPN not carrying a 3:30 game this week?

If Auburn is designated the home team vs UNC, would that not relegate the game to ESPN, since ABC doesn’t carry SEC designated home games? If that happens, I could see Louisville @ Clemson 3:30 ABC...what you think?

Also what are the chances FOX makes OSU @ ORE the BIG NOON KICKOFF?

(Sorry for all the questions)

The US Open Women's Final is in mid-afternoon on ESPN this day.

As for OSU at Oregon in the Big Noon slot on FOX, I thought I had read that the Pac-12 still had no interest in 2020 Big Noon slots, something written within the last couple months, but I cannot find that. In my opinion, I think they want to try to push an intraconference game in the Big Noon slot over a marquee non-conference game which should draw viewers regardless of where it airs.
