When will SDSU start be posted?

When are start times for future games determined? I'm assuming that TV schedules (and the popularity of upcoming games) goes into whether a game will start at noon, 3:30pm, or some other time. However, I'm considering going to several of the games where the start time is undetermined, and the start time plays a role in whether or not I'll go.

Also, with everything going into the Michigan - ND game, I feel safe in assuming there will be no "night games" set up a couple weeks in advance, but that such games have to be scheduled long ahead of time. (Hence, the Michigan - Northwestern start time was announced this summer, being it was a night game.) If this is true, the only possible time slots for game starts would be 12 & 3:30pm.

Last wrinkle:  are games at Iowa & Illinois either 12 & 3:30pm local time, or EST?

ABC can choose us or OSU/Colorado.  In addition, they choose a Pac-12 game for the same timeslot on the opposite side of the mirror.  They will get more viewers by choosing a game showing two BCS teams vs one with a mid-major.

November games at The Big House are always noon starts no matter the opponent. Here are my timeslot predictions for the games that don't have a set time or network yet.

SDSU              3:30/ESPN

Minnesota        Noon/ESPN2

State                3:30/ABC

Purdue           Noon/BTN

Iowa                3:30/ESPN

Illinois            Noon/ESPN

Nebraska        Noon/ABC

ohio                Noon/ABC
