      What does the six day selection mean?

        Networks have to make the timeslot selection 11 days out. X amount of times per season, the networks can opt for a 6 day selection window in case they want “better” matchups

          They should have used one of them last weekend with the Utah-Ariz St game.

        Here’s a clear-as-mud explanation I found:

        Most games are selected with either 12-day or six-day notice to the Conference. The networks each have two opportunities (four total) to select games on six days notices annually. On or before June 1, ABC/ESPN and FOX will pre-select games for the first three Saturdays; special-date games (like Thursdays), games on Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving Friday. For the remaining weeks, ABC/ESPN and FOX shall select games no later than Noon CT on the 12th day preceding a Saturday telecast. ABC/ESPN and FOX have the right on four dates to make the final selection no later than Noon CT on the sixth day preceding a Saturday telecast. Generally, homecoming games will be selected at least 12 days in advance, but the Conference must consider an occasional request to use a six-day pick to select a homecoming game of significance

      Six day selection is when the networks don’t make a decision on what time they want the game to kick off until the Sunday before the games. Usually they do this when they want to ensure they have the best matchup possible.
