CFB TV Confirmations for 2021 Week 7 (10/16/21)

This post will be updated as announcements come out for start times for 10/16/21 from the twelve day selection process that most TV networks adhere to. Most conferences have the possibility of having all or part of their games held for a six day hold of the start time. 

The list of available TV windows are based on media websites, TV listings and press releases. They can change based on the needs of the broadcaster or the conference.

First Kentucky football game on CBS since 2018. I believe the only SEC team with a longer drought is Vanderbilt. Even the Mississippi schools get on CBS more often than Kentucky (Mississippi was on last Saturday).

Matt, do you know which network has first pick if the Big 12 games? I was just wondering on who to root for! 😆

No I do not.

With ESPN making 4 selections for Week 7, that puts them up to 18 on the season. Do they really just have 5 more Big 12 games to select to hit 23? That doesn't seem like that many.
