CFB TV Guesses for 2020 Week 2 (9/10/20-9/12/20)

This is going to be a mess.

Here are the games already set for television and/or webcast.  Here are the known available telecast windows.

I have very little idea what TV windows are out there. Every listing service has a little different schedule for these networks. I can tell you that ESPN plans for the US Open women's final to be contested in mid-afternoon. FOX & FS1 also intend to have evening MLB.  

Also, it appears that the Big 12 non-conference games being played will NOT be held as member retained games, but used to beef up the national TV packages for ESPN & FOX.

I'm also aware that Week 3 could end up being announced on Monday too, but I'm going to hold off on trying to guess those.

7:30pm ACCN: UAB at Miami (FL)

12pm FOX: SMU at TCU
12pm ESPN: Louisiana at Iowa State
12pm ESPN2: Coastal Carolina at Kansas
12pm FS1: Louisiana Tech at Baylor
12pm ESPNU: Eastern Kentucky at West Virginia
12pm ACCN: Syracuse at North Carolina
12:30pm ACC RSNs: Austin Peay at Pitt
2:30pm NBC: Duke at Notre Dame
3:30pm ABC: UTEP at Texas
3:30pm ESPN2: Houston Baptist at Texas Tech
3:30pm FS1: Arkansas State at Kansas State
3:30pm ESPNU: Tulane at South Alabama
4pm ACCN: WKU at Louisville
7pm ESPN: Tulsa at Oklahoma State
7pm ESPN2: Missouri State at Oklahoma
7pm ESPNU: Charlotte at Appalachian State
7:30pm ABC: Clemson at Wake Forest
7:30pm ACCN: Georgia Tech at Florida State

Let's put it this way: I'll do this as long as they continue to have games on a schedule.

Rolling in the Big 12 member retained games into the existing contracts makes sense for everybody but OU as ESPN owns them. Though, how would that work for OU and Sinclair? That PPV game is used to write that big tier 3 check.

I assume it was agreed to by all parties if accurate and would assume there might be a rebate coming to the rightsholder since there would be no football game involved in 2020-21.
