Ohio Game Time
« on: November 13, 2017, 01:03:05 PM »
Are these (the Black Friday games) on a "hold" from the networks?  Anyone have an idea when they will be announced?

Most games after the first few weeks are on a 12 day window for start times for television purposes.  Twelve days before the Ohio game was yesterday, so it should be any day now.  My guess is that they will hold off the game times until after Wednesday night when the only remaining game will be our game against Ball State.  That will allow the networks to select the best match up for a meaningful game.

All the West teams playing that day are bowl eligible.  Ohio can wrap up the East with a win tomorrow over Akron.  It looks like too many combinations for a West title on the table today to figure out if one of the games in the West will not be a significant game.  Unfortunately, I think will will be on the Trey and not television unless ESPN wants a MAC doubleheader on ESPNU that day.

Regardless of where the game is I expect a noon start, 1:00 PM at the latest.

Thanks Brook......I like your logic here.  I'm hoping for a 1:00pm start.............Dar and I will be off to Ottawa thereafter for Grey Cup on Sunday.  Gotta love football.. Go Bulls!
This trying to figure out tv schedules stuff is a bit of a pain (or more)!

Upon further review..................you got to be shaqting me.   UB hosting OU (as in Ohio....      :-(     )  This might qualify for the "Who Cares Bowl".  There won't be 1000 of us prepared to put our backsides in colds seats at UB on the 24th.  Most folks will be at home (smart) or shopping (not so smart) :-)    or eating leftovers!
What time is the darn game????

The season ends this way to get more games on TV than if it ended on Saturday.  It also avoids having to fight for TV slots with the big annual games  played on the last weekend.

I will not be in my seats that day as they were a prize at the wome's game last night.  I will be resting after seeing the men's team for three games in the Cayman Islands.  Was going to be in Puerto Rico originally to see the women play, but they got moved to Daytona Beach, so a few extra days in the Caymans.

Based upon discussions with sources the game time will be announced today.    It supposed to be in place in time for a contest that will take place during the men's game tonight so that the time can be stated at the time of the contest.
