CFB TV Guesses for 2021 Week 13 Selections (11/26/21 & 11/27/21)

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.

* The following games have been preselected by network groups but without a start time or TV network finalized:
  • Oklahoma at Oklahoma State (ABC, ESPN or ESPN2)
Number of six day holds used
ACC: 3 (11/6, 11/13, 11/20)
American: 1 (11/20)
Big 12: 4 (10/16, 10/23, 11/6, 11/13)
Big Ten: 2 (11/6, 11/13)
Mountain West: 1 (10/16)
Pac-12: 2 (10/30 by FOX, 11/6 by ESPN, 11/20 by ESPN)
SEC: 3 (10/9 and 11/6 by CBS, 10/16 by ESPN)

12pm CBSSN: Ohio at Bowling Green
3:30pm ABC: Cincinnati at ECU
3:30pm ESPN: USF at UCF
7pm ESPN: North Carolina at NC State

Coastal Carolina at South Alabama - This one could be televised if some of the ESPN Events Invitational were to be shifted from ESPNU to ESPNEWS, allowing this one to be slotted in at 3:30pm ET on ESPNU

Georgia Southern at Appalachian State
Texas State at Arkansas State
Troy at Georgia State

* I gave ESPN the top Big Ten choice after Ohio State at Michigan State, FOX Sports the top Pac-12 choice and ESPN the top Big 12 choice after Oklahoma at Oklahoma State.
* I didn't have a need for any late evening windows on ESPN2 or ESPNU.
* I'm assuming FOX Sports will not get an extra game this season due to the lost Cal-USC game on 11/13. If anything, maybe they'll figure out a way to carve out a window on FS1. There's a three hour opening from 6-9pm that night, but I don't know what other programming they have planned and would need to adjust the last MBK window at 9pm (Iowa State at Creighton) to get a 3 hour 30 minute TV window.
* I moved the BTN games to a concurrent 3:30pm window.  With FOX owning the network, its one less game to conflict with Ohio State-Michigan.
