Good, if not unexpected news, TCU-Ohio State gets the 7 pm CT slot on ABC, and presumably Herbstreit and Fowler on the call. There’s a pretty good chance that time slot will be up against USC at Texas on FOX Primetime. Other big games that day are LSU at Auburn, WVU at NC State, Bama at Ole Miss, Houston at Tech, and Boise at OSU. Will also be interesting to watch SMU at Michigan and faux national champion UCF at UNC. BYU at Wisconsin and Baylor hosting a non-conference P5 program (Duke) for the first time in generations could be remotely interesting. So, if you don’t plan to schlep to AT&T there’s tons of good football to watch. Alabama-Louisville (Orlando) gets ABC Primetime in week 1 (against Michigan at Notre Dame on NBC), with LSU-Miami (AT&T Stadium) gets ABC Primetime on Sunday of week 1. Virginia Tech at a Florida State is set for Labor Day Primetime on ESPN. Penn State at Pitt is ABC primetime for week 2. CDC also announced he’s pushed UT’s home and home series with Ohio State to 2025-2026 to make room for Texas-Alabama in 2022 and 2023. Big move to get Saban to go somewhere other than a neutral site. But CDC sand Bama AD Greg Byrne are pretty close so the fact a matchup between the two was scheduled is unsurprising. On another note, the TCU-SMU deal is set to expire in 2019. I’d expect some sort of announcement on the future of the series this fall.
