    Alabama – Louisville has been announced as the Sat night game on ABC on Sep 1.

    That removes the chance of WVU – Tennessee in that slot.

    Kevin – I believe you mean Alabama-Louisville. Notre Dame-Michigan is at 7:30 on NBC.

    There are several other quality/intriguing match ups that day, including:

    Auburn v. Washington (Atlanta)
    Ole Miss v. Texas Tech (Houston)
    Texas v. Maryland (Landover)
    FAU v. Oklahoma (Norman)
    Oregon State v. Ohio State (Columbus)
    Cincinnati v. UCLA (Los Angeles)
    UNC v. Cal (Berkeley)

    As long as we get something in the 3pm time slot or later, I’ll be OK with it. Noon would not be preferable.
    I’m not sure what other slots are available, probably some on ESPN and ESPN2. Who holds the rights to this game? Would FOX want to put us up against Bama-UL or ND-Michigan?

    I did. Was looking at something else when I posted.

    Right now, it is not locked in to a network, so it could be ESPN or someone else.

    We won’t know for sure for 2-3 weeks, but have gotten some indication that a later afternoon (3:30ish) is a strong possibility.
