Turner would be the frontrunner IMO

NBC is pretty full up on Saturdays in the fall with golf, Notre Dame football, horse racing and NASCAR. Plus, Saturday Night Live supposedly has the power to pull the switch on games if they run over the time period. Plus, east coast affiliates might not like having to preempt local news for a game featuring west coast teams.

Turner doesn't have any affiliates, and has shown a recent willingness to go after sports properties like the NBA, NCAA Tournament, MLB playoffs, and (yes it's not real) All Elite Wrestling. Plus, Turner has BR/Live their new streaming service that is like ESPN+. They could put the PAC12 Network on it as a subscription service and get subscribers in areas where they don't have distribution deals.
