Several games have been held under a six-day option, which means the kickoff time and TV will not be announced until Sunday, Nov. 16.

The remainder of times and TV for the weekend of Nov. 22 are listed on each team’s 2014 football schedule.

There’s too many TBAs to try to figure out which network games will be on and which time they’ll start at. If I had to guess, I would say that ESPN News will take 2 AAC games, FS1 will take Stanford/Cal or AZ/Utah, BTN will take Ind @ Oh St, Maryland @ Michigan, and PSU @ ILL.

According to their TV schedule, ESPN has 15 slots for the 22nd. They have the 3 ESPNU games as noted in the post (NW @ Purd, Syr @ PITT, Samford @ Aub), as well as Boise St @ Wyo and Fresno St @ Nev at 10:30 ET on ESPN2 and U respectively, and a 7:30 SEC game. That leaves 9 games remaining. I think they will take the 2 TBAs from the ACC (BC @ FSU, Mia @ Virg), 2 AAC games, 3 Big 10 games, 2 Pac 12 games (USC @ UCLA, AZ @ Utah or Stan/Cal). 2+2+3+2=9.

This is my prediction for how it will play out: (Times ET)
–ESPN Networks:
12 PM:
ESPN2-Mia @ Virg
ESPNU-NW @ Purd (Fixed)

3:30 PM
ABC/ESPN2-Minn @ Neb
ESPN-Wisc @ Iowa
ESPNU-Syr @ Pitt (Fixed)

4 PM:

7 PM:
ESPNU-Samford @ Auburn (Fixed)

7:30 PM:
ESPN-Mizzou @ Tenn or Vandy @ MS St

8 PM:

10:15 PM:

10:30 PM:
ESPNU-Fres St @ Nev

–FOX Sports 1:
12 PM-KU @ Okla (fixed)
4 PM-Stanford @ Cal

–Big Ten Network:
12 PM-Indiana @ Ohio
3:30 PM-Maryland @ Mich and PSU @ ILL
BTN is airing a basketball game at 8 and 10 PM, which is why they will air regional games at 3:30, instead of taking up the 7 PM slot for a game.


You have the wrong score (actually 49 to 37) on the OSU/Mich St. game, which wasn’t a squeaker by any means.
