CFB TV Guesses for 2020 Week 13 (11/28/20)

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)
* Black Friday has been set in advance, which is not the norm.
* MAC games join the 12 day party after their usual weeknight foray.  There will be a 12pm game on CBS Sports Network.
* Joel Klatt let it slip that Penn State at Michigan would be FOX's choice this weekend for Big Noon before the Big Ten restarted. I'll take him at his word even if it's prestige is pretty low right now in the season.
*I don't know if BTN is required to get another Ohio State game due to the canceled game vs. Maryland. I'm going to assume they will.
* I have no idea of the BTN windows but I am assuming three at the usual times. They have not been provided by listing services at the time this post was published

Big Ten Notes:

Ohio State can always play Michigan State on BTN.

I think FOX reserved the first choice for Nov. 28 but not the game. I don't doubt they picked the week because of Penn State/Michigan but if they had actually chosen the game, they would have announced the game already like they did for Ohio State/Michigan.

There are two other teams that I think are bigger concerns to BTN than Ohio State:

Indiana: Still needs TWO BTN games and they play a big game vs. Wisconsin. If they're not on BTN vs. Maryland they HAVE to be on vs. Wisconsin which is clearly a network game. They also still have Purdue which probably has to go to BTN to make sure Wisconsin is a network game.

Wisconsin: Still needs a BTN game. Minnesota is a rivalry game but they're lousy and the Badgers' remaining games are Indiana and Iowa, a much better team. I might see Wisconsin-Iowa going to BTN but Minnesota-Wisconsin makes more sense.

A few notes:

When will night games end for the Big Ten?
Minnesota stinks this year. I don’t think they’ll get that 7:30 slot.
Has Florida been on SECN this year yet?

I think they'll have night games in the Big Ten all season due to the severely reduced attendance.

As for if Florida had been on SEC Network, check my site for that info under the 2020 revised section. I don't think every school is required to appear there.
