For those wondering about NU/CU, assume Fox is taking Texas @ Michigan for Big Noon.  So whoever has the 2nd pick (CBS at 2:30 or NBC at 6:30) will take our game.

 

Then one of these games will be the 3rd pick

Kansas @ Illinois

Iowa St @ Iowa

Mich St @ Maryland

Duke @ Northwestern

Boise St @ Oregon

Do they pick week-by-week?  I thought it was season-by-season.  As in, Fox gets the first pick and it'll definitely be Ohio State/Michigan.

The actually draft weeks, not games (and Fox doesn't get the 1st pick of every weekend).  That's why we get the 2 week out announcements later in the season, because they wait until they see how the season will be going before deciding what game they might want in say week 10.

 

And looking at the schedule, all weeks aren't created equal.  Week 10 might be loaded while Week 5 sucks (byes, crappy non-con games).  So say CBS might take "2nd pick Week 10" instead of "1st pick week 5".

 

For example, the first 10 picks of the "draft" might go:

 

Fox - 1st pick Week 14 (OSU/MIch)

Fox - 1st pick Week 2 (Tex/Mich)

Fox - 1st pick Week 3

Fox - 1st pick Week 10

NBC - 1st pick Week 7

CBS - 1st pick Week 13

Fox - 1st pick Week 12

Fox - 1st pick Week 9

CBS - 2nd pick Week 10

NBC - 2nd pick Week 2 (CU/NU)

Or we’re hosting Illinois on a Friday night

 

 

 

Callahan saying Illinois is likely.

 

Apparently all four of our road games (other than Iowa on Black Frida) are Homecoming for the team we're playing....

Sounds like all the B1G Friday games are getting announced this afternoon.

 

And to add to the kick in the nuts of hosting a Friday game, the Illinois game will be the 400th "sellout" in a row.
