Week 15 College Football TV Schedule – This is the End

Yes.  The end.  The end of:

  • The regular season
  • The hopes for some teams of going to the inaugural College Football Playoff
  • The hopes for some teams to get to the other big-time fun New Year’s Six bowls
  • The hopes for some other teams who just want to go bowling over the holidays
  • The UAB football program

Poor UAB and their football program.  I don’t know all the ins and outs of what has happened there.  I do think this is a wakeup call for some other FBS programs though.  Some run massive annual deficits with no real end in sight.  If a drop to the FCS level is feasible, then it may happen.  Then there’s that whole Division 4 idea.  This may come to fruition faster than we think if program sustainability becomes a huge issue.  All we can do is wait and see…and hope UAB is invited to a bowl this season.  It’s only fair.

Anyway, here is the entire schedule since it’s pretty small:

UCF at East Carolina (Thu) 7:30 PM SP
MAC Championship (Bowling Green vs. Northern Illinois) (Fri) 7:00 PM SP
Pac-12 Championship (Arizona vs. Oregon) (Fri) 9:00 PM FOX
Iowa State at TCU 12:00 PM ABC
SMU at Connecticut 12:00 PM CBSSN
Conference USA Championship (Louisiana Tech at Marshall) 12:00 PM SP
Houston at Cincinnati 12:00 PM SP
SEC Championship (Missouri vs. Alabama) 4:00 PM CBS
SWAC Championship (Alcorn State vs. Southern) 4:00 PM SP
Temple at Tulane 7:30 PM SP
Kansas State at Baylor 7:45 PM SP
ACC Championship (Georgia Tech vs. Florida State) 8:00 PM ABC
Big Ten Championship (Wisconsin vs. Ohio State) 8:00 PM FOX
Mountain West Championship (Fresno State at Boise State) 10:00 PM CBS

Amazingly enough, we are in week 15 and it’s a Wednesday and Rogers and Bell still don’t have their act together.  The asterisks denote the games that still aren’t set but probably will be in the next 24 hours or so.  TSN has decided to pretty much stop showing college football and with bowl season coming up it makes for interesting conversation as to what we will be able to see on cable and what will be moved to the specialty pack.  Again, a wait and see approach is required here.  Update: The C-USA Championship and the KSU-Baylor game have now appeared on the specialty pack schedule (well, the Bell one at least).  Only waiting on Houston-Cincinnati now.

Update #2: Houston-Cincinnati finally added to the specialty pack schedule.  Not that I care really since I won’t be watching it but good to know Bell (and probably Rogers) have finally added it.  Took them enough time.

It sounds like pretty much the entire bowl schedule will be finalized Sunday so I should be pretty busy updating that throughout the day.  Tomorrow I will take a look at the games this week and the NFL schedule will be delayed to Friday.  No worries.  If you don’t realize the Thursday nighter is on the NFL Network and on Sportsnet then you probably don’t watch the NFL to begin with.
