CFB TV Guesses: 2022 Week 3 (Final Revision)

One last guess at Week 3 as we head in to May. Games in bold are confirmed for time and TV. Games in italics are confirmed for the TV outlet but not the time. Games in purple are confirmed for a particular network family (ie. an ESPN game = could be ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc.).

Under the list of games there's some notes about any changes I made. Also, if your game isn't listed, assume it is being delivered digitally via ESPN+, MW Network or some other means.

7:30pm ESPN: Rutgers at Temple

Now that we know that Chargers at Chiefs is the opening Thursday night game on Amazon's schedule, I think that ESPN can be comfortable in finalizing this game with the Thursday date, if that's their plan.

I heard a lot of you on my original choice of Toledo at Ohio State as the night game, and I think you're correct - its not the night game, regardless of how well Ohio State can carry a TV rating. As several of you pointed out, Texas Tech at NC State might end up being a sneaky good game early in the season with NC State returning a lot, so I did move that one up to ESPN. My thought was to be simple about this: Toledo at Ohio State is the type of game FOX doesn't mind taking for a noon start, even if its a blowout, and Oklahoma at Nebraska makes sense for a primetime game on ABC. So I swapped those two.

The CBSSN games are at slightly odd times for the network because of the choice of Mountain West game to end the evening. CBSSN and the MW have an agreement to not start the conference's games later than 8pm local time, so I had to work backwards from there.
