Week 4 of the 2021 college football season has arrived, and it brings another loaded schedule on CBS Sports Network spanning Friday and Saturday. Charlotte kicked off the slate Friday with a 42-39 win vs. Middle Tennessee to pick up its first Conference USA victory this season and n the nightcap, No. 22 Fresno State rallied to beat UNLV 38-30.
Saturday’s tripleheader kicks off at noon with Army looking to improve to 4-0 against Miami (Ohio). The busy day continues at 3:30 p.m. with a high-powered Wyoming squad traveling to UConn. Finally, Western Kentucky will host Indiana at 8 p.m. with the Hilltoppers gearing up for a home game against a Power Five opponent. For the Hoosiers, the game represents a chance for the preseason No. 17 team to get back on track after a disappointing 1-2 start. With a game at No. 6 Penn State coming up in Week 4, Indiana needs to generate momentum, but WKU’s pass-happy offense will pose a challenge.
Here is the full rundown of all the Week 4 action on CBS Sports Network with all times ET.
Miami (Ohio) at Army
Storylines: Army is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2016 behind its usual efficient option attack and a stifling run defense. Miami (Ohio) is 1-2, but opened with road games at Cincinnati and Minnesota. Considering the level of competition, the Redhawks have done a decent job of generating explosive plays. They haven’t been great at defending the run, though, which means this could be a high-scoring game. Army won the last meeting 31-30 in 2018.
Wyoming at UConn
Storylines: UConn scored its first touchdowns against FBS opposition last week in a 52-21 loss to Army. Those scores came in garbage time, however, after the Huskies fell behind 42-0 at halftime and Army pulled its starters. But perhaps the momentum generated in the second half can propel the Huskies this week. They’ll need all the mojo they can find against a 3-0 Wyoming that scored a combined 95 points in the last two weeks.
Western Kentucky vs. Indiana
Storylines: Indiana began the season with lofty expectations, but it needs a get-right game after losses to Iowa and Cincinnati. The Hoosiers can’t get caught looking ahead to next week’s game at No. 6 Penn State, though, because Western Kentucky poses a tough test. The Hilltoppers and their pass-obsessed attack generated 435 yards through the air in a close loss to Army during Week 2. Indiana is 3-0 all-time against WKU, including a 38-21 road win in 2010.
