CFB TV Guesses for 2020 Week 14 (12/5/20)

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)
* Two MAC games at 12pm & 3:30pm on CBSSN, but I think they may need to move one of those windows to Friday now that Tulsa at Navy has been moved to this day and would normally be televised by CBSSN.  Then again, its 2020. Maybe we'll the MAC for breakfast. 
* UFC is scheduled for a Fight Night card on ESPN2 starting at 7pm.  They are carrying both the prelim matches and the main card.
* FS1 is scheduled to carry prelim bouts for the Spence Jr vs. Garcia PBC pay-per-view, but they are also showing a 7pm football game, so I'm unclear if the football game is incorrect or if FS2 is carrying the prelim bouts. There seems to be an opening at 5:30pm ET on FS2 that is 3.5 hours in length for football if needed. 
* I added the SEC Alt window at 7:30pm
* I'm really unsure how the lost BTN appearances, either due to games being elevated or canceled, affect the selections.  I'm assuming that those schools still need to appear here two times even if a game was scheduled for the network and canceled.

I am confused about the Rice at Marshall game so double check what you did

Matt Sarzyniak said...

I picked it because ESPN was televising several CUSA games earlier in the season. Thought it was worth it with Marshall being in the top 25.

No in that regard I get but I am talking about you list 530 as the time but it's listed in the 330 group

Matt Sarzyniak said...

Not a misprint. Omission on my part. ESPNU has 12pm men's basketball, so the game times they've provided are 2pm, 5:30pm & 9pm.

Oh alright well then shouldn't it be listed after the 4 o'clock games & before the 7 o'clock games

Matt Sarzyniak said...

Fixed. Thank you.

5 games on BTN seems unlikely, then again 1 will be cancelled like the last 4 weeks.

Yeah it probably is but as he said they have lost a few games so something will have to give given their rules
