This list actually includes all games involving FBS or FCS schools, whether televised or not. For the TV games, I also list the broadcast announcers and sideline reporters. There are usually one or two games (often local telecasts involving FCS teams) where gathering information on announcers and sideline reporters can be difficult. I usually get all the information on the announcing teams before the weekend begins, however.
As I’ve done throughout the season, I’m using Google Documents in an effort to make the listings more accessible.

Of the 108 games this weekend involving FBS and FCS schools, 59 of them will be televised live on a local, regional, or national basis. Of the 53 games featuring FBS squads (including Alabama’s game against UT-Chattanooga of the FCS), 42 will be televised. Only four games involving teams from BCS leagues will not be on TV — Baylor-Texas A&M, Iowa State-Missouri, Oregon State-Washington State, and Rutgers-Syracuse (although the Big East contest will be on the ESPN360 platform).
A lot of the information I used in putting this together came courtesy of Matt Sarzyniak’s great website (College Sports on TV) and the folks over at the 506.com; there are links to both sites to the right of this page, in the “TSA Checkpoints” section.
