CFB TV Guesses for 2020 Week 12 (11/21/20)

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

I have done my best to list what TV windows are out there. Every listing service has a little different schedule for these networks. It is also possible that a window could be eliminated or the time of a window could shift slightly to accommodate a network's needs.

Considerations (you might want to read these instead of skipping past them)
* ESPN2 has UFC at 7pm ET
* FS1 has boxing at 7pm ET
* Regional sports networks are listing two ACC games, one at 12pm & one at 3:30pm.
* I gave ESPN the top Big 12 choice. FOX Sports received the top Big Ten & Pac-12 Saturday choices.
* The reason I gave the Big 12 to choice to ESPN is because of what FOX didn't announce earlier in the year, which is that they would be showing Bedlam (Oklahoma State-Oklahoma). FOX Sports has a tendency to announce games in advance like that, such as what they do with Oklahoma-Texas and Michigan-Ohio State, and they have announced carrying Bedlam in advance of the season before. 

Number of six day holds used
ACC: 1 (11/14)
Big 12: 3 (10/3, 11/7, 11/14)

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma was probably the #2 overall Big 12 game heading in to the season. Fox has had multiple other Big games already.

I'd guess this week was the Big 12's #2 overall pick in the draft behind the week of the Red River Rivalry. After that, I wouldn't even know what game/week before the season would be #3. I think of the Big 12 as Oklahoma, Texas, and the "Little Eight".
