Final Revision of CFB TV Week 3 Guesses for 2021

I don't have anything major to revise from Week 2 except for a couple items.
  • North Carolina A&T at Duke moved from Saturday to Friday.  I'm expecting it to air on ACCN at 7pm ET.  I expected the game to be streamed and did not have it listed
  • Toledo at Notre Dame has had its start time confirmed at 2:30pm ET on NBC.
As for Week 3, the reason I have to make revisions is due to FOX's MLB schedule, which will televise games at night on Saturday.

Revisions from the original Week 3 guesses are in red

No games yet have been moved to Thursday.  My choice to move to Thursday would be the Baylor-Kansas game.  FS1 has a NASCAR Truck Series race scheduled for 9pm ET.  I think that limits their ability to move any game to this night.

7:30pm ESPN: Baylor at Kansas

8pm ESPN: UCF at Louisville

  • CBS starts its schedule of SEC games this particular week.
  • Typically, BTN will not have a night game when ABC is carrying the Big Ten in primetime, which is why I don't have one as I've placed Auburn at Penn State in primetime on their network.
  • Since FOX doesn't have an open window in the evening, I've had to place a 2nd game on FS2, moving a Big 12 game there and taking the game that was scheduled for FOX and placing it on FS1. Also had to alter the start time for the afternoon FOX game.  I think a good argument could be made to swap the 3:30pm FS1 and FS1 games too.
