CFB TV Guesses for 2021 Week 4 (9/25/21)

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.

A few notes and considerations:

* Bowling Green at Minnesota & Rutgers at Michigan are homecoming games and are locked to their start times. 
* Advance listings only have FS1 games at 12pm & 7pm ET.  There's a game listed on FS2 at 3:30pm ET, which I'm assuming is for the Mountain West.  If there's is a 3:30pm ET game, move a Pac-12 game from Pac-12 Networks to FS1.  My move would be Oregon State at USC, or move SMU at TCU from ESPN+ to FS1.
* I'm not certain on the number of Pac-12 Networks games.  I went with four game windows.  Could be less.
* BTN listings have two games at 12pm and 3:30pm, and a single game at 7:30pm ET.
* FOX has no primetime game, choosing to air MLB instead.  Their 12pm window has already been selected and check the link in the 1st sentence for that game.
* I assume FOX took the top Big Ten selection with their 12pm game, leaving ESPN to take the next best game.
* For the Pac-12, I gave ESPN the top choice and the top choice from the Big 12 as well.

Alabama in the ESPN prime time game vs. Southern Miss? I know Alabama is popular but are they that popular?
