- Week 1: Hawaii at Florida
Week 2: Southern Miss at Auburn
Week 3: UAB at Tennessee
The appeal of the Big 12 North Champs vs. the Rose Bowl Runner-Up outweighed the Heisman Show in Gainesville. Either that or the Disney Family of Networks was uncomfortable televising a match-up of Tebow vs. Pacific Islanders. The last one ended up with blood everywhere.

***Jim Cornett lost interest in televising the Memphis/Ole Miss game after Orgeron got fired. Cornett's Mid-South Network was looking to hire Tony Schiavone to do play by play for it, but that all fell apart after Jerry Lawler made a big stink about who owned the Memphis circuit. Or not.
