College Football TV Listings, Week 5

This is a list of every game played during week 5 of the college football season involving at least one FBS or FCS school.  All games are listed, televised or not.  For the televised games (only live broadcasts are listed), I include the announcers and sideline analysts/reporters (where applicable).  I put all of it on a Google Documents spreadsheet that can be accessed at the following link:

This week, Michigan State-Ohio State will be available nationally on either ABC or ESPN as the primary “reverse mirror” game.  Depending on where you live, Georgia Tech-North Carolina State and Baylor-Kansas State will only be available for television viewing via GamePlan (all three games will be on ESPN3.com).

A lot of the information I used in putting this together came courtesy of Matt Sarzyniak’s alarmingly comprehensive and completely indispensable website College Sports on TV, a must-bookmark for any fan of college sports.  Also to be credited, as always, are the indefatigable information gatherers (and in some cases sports-TV savants) at the 506.com.  I am also assisted on occasion by helpful athletic media relations officials at various schools and conferences.
