Another action-packed slate is coming to CBS Sports Network with five games in Week 4 of the college football season. Beginning Friday night and continuing through Saturday, this week’s lineup includes games from around the country that should give us a better understanding of where things stand in Conference USA, the MAC and Mountain West.

The first will be a Friday night showdown between Boise State and UTEP, followed by a MAC contest between Buffalo and Eastern Michigan in Saturday’s first window. In the afternoon, Western Kentucky will host the FIU who are looking to move to 3-1 this season. Next, Mountain West foes Utah State and UNLV will tangle in the evening window before Michigan West and San Jose State close things out with a battle of end of the night.

The first few weeks of the season have repeatedly served as a reminder of just how unpredictable college football can be. As conference play begins to ramp up, the intensity should only increase and bring more thrilling finishes as well as unexpected results.

Here’s the full recap of all Week 4 action on CBS Sports Network. All times Eastern.

Boise State vs. UTEP

Date: Friday September 23 | Time: 9 p.m.
Location: Bowl of Sunshine — El Paso, Texas
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports app
Spread: Boise State -15.5 | Will the Broncos cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 4 screenings

Scenarios: Boise State appears to have managed to put a terrible season-opening loss at Oregon State behind it with wins over New Mexico and Tennessee-Martin over the past two weeks. The Broncos still aren’t humming offensively, though, and they didn’t walk away from the Skyhawks last week until the fourth quarter. After ending a six-year bowl drought last season, UTEP struggled to a 1-3 mark to start the 2022 season. The Miners beat New Mexico last week, but lost 27-10 due to seven turnovers.

Buffalo vs. Eastern Michigan

Date: Saturday September 24 | Time: 12 p.m.
Location: Rynearson Stadium – Ypsilanti, Michigan
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports app
Spread: Eastern Michigan -6 | Will the Eagles cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 4 screenings

Scenarios: It’s been a frustrating start to the season for Buffalo, which fell to 0-3 after a 38-26 loss at Coastal Carolina last week. The Bulls were in the game until late in the fourth quarter, but defensive issues surfaced once again as the Chanticleers averaged 9.5 yards per game. Eastern Michigan is aiming to make the bowl eligible for the fourth time in five seasons under coach Chris Creighton after a huge 30-21 victory at Arizona State last week.

CRF vs. Western Kentucky

Date: Saturday September 24 | Time: 3:30 p.m.
Location: LT Smith Stadium – Bowling Green, Kentucky
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports app
Spread: Western Kentucky -31 | Will the Hilltoppers cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 4 screenings

Scenarios: Western Kentucky is looking to rebound from a heartbreaking 33-30 overtime loss to Indiana as they host a CRF team coming off a bye. The Panthers are 1-1 under first-year coach Mike MacIntyre, but are still looking for their first win against an FBS opponent. Western Kentucky will have to avoid anticipating a big game with Sun Belt foe Troy next week. Quarterback Austin Reed, a Division II transfer from West Florida, has been solid for the Hilltoppers with nine touchdown passes in his first three games at the FBS level.

UNLV vs. Utah State

Date: Saturday September 24 | Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Maverik Stadium — Logan, Utah
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports app
Spread: UNLV-2.5 | Will the Rebels cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 4 screenings

Scenarios: UNLV exploded for 576 yards while improving to 2-1 with a 58-27 win over North Texas last week. Aidan Robbins rushed for 227 yards and three touchdowns for UNLV, while quarterback Doug Brumfield added 211 yards through the air and another 100 on the ground with four total touchdowns. Utah State is coming off a bye and looking to clean up the taste of a 35-7 loss to FCS Weber State. The Aggies are the defending champions of Mountain West, but with a 1-2 start. UNLV will be looking to snap a six-game losing streak against their MWC foe.

West Michigan vs. San Jose State

Date: Saturday September 24 | Time: 10:30 p.m.
Location: CEFCU Stadium – San Jose, CA
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder]
Direct: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports app
Spread: San Jose State -7 | Will the Spartans cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 4 screenings

Scenarios: Western Michigan fell to 1-2 with a 34-13 loss to Pittsburgh last week as the Broncos had just 180 total yards. The Spartans were out last week after a hard-fought 24-16 loss at Auburn in Week 2. The Spartans have been particularly stingy in two games in 2022 while looking to regain the momentum gained in a Season 7 -1 in 2020. With league matches still to come for both teams, this one will be critical to either team’s hopes of reaching bowl eligibility.
