Baylor losing I think puts ISU into the 7pm spot, TCU lost to us and Texas looked bad today, so I do not see them getting prime time, although it is Texas and they will want eyeballs in Texas which our game won't offer much of.
I agree with this. I actually have a hard time seeing that game get that slot if Baylor loses.
Keep in mind that not every game can get every slot.
Texas Tech-TCU can only be 11:00 or 2:30.
Baylor-Texas can only be 2:30 or 7:00.
ISU-OSU can be any of the three (11:00, 2:30, 7:00).
So for the primetime slot, ABC has to choose Baylor-Texas or ISU-OSU, even though Tech-TCU might be the best pick. I think that ABC will want to get that game on their network, picking it up for 2:30. That means that we have to play at 11:00, since Baylor-Texas cannot. They get the 7:00 slot almost by default.
