College football ’13 TV lineup for L.A. in Week 13: It’s a weekend of stuff that sets up the grand finale of the regular season … who’ll hold form?

security-consequences250x200Maybe they aren’t looking ahead, but we are.
And all we’ve been told so far is UCLA vs. USC at the Coliseum on the Saturday after Thanksgiving will either be at 12:30 p.m. (on Channel 7, ESPN or ESPN2) or at 5 p.m. (on Channel 7). It depends on things fall this weekend.
However, Michigan-Ohio State is already going to be a 9 a.m. kickoff for ABC on that day. Florida vs. Florida State is also in that 12:30 p.m. range on one of the three networks. Texas A&M-Missouri has already been given an ESPN window at 4:45 p.m., and Clemson-South Carolina is on ESPN2 at 4 p.m.
You really thought the Pac-12 Network would figure out a way to hijack UCLA-USC? It has Arizona State vs. Arizona at 6:30 p.m. which could have P12 South implications.
Again, all that is for next Saturday. We won’t find out about USC-UCLA until this Sunday, the day after these staged events take place:
