Buffalo vs. Eastern Michigan live stream online, channel, odds, prediction, how to watch on CBS Sports Network

Another loaded slate of college football action will be coming to CBS Sports Network featuring five games during Week 4 of the season. Beginning on Friday night and continuing on through Saturday, this week’s lineup features games from across the country that should provide us with a better understanding of where things stand in Conference USA, the MAC and the Mountain West. 

Up 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 early window. In the afternoon, Western Kentucky will host FIU looking to improve to 3-1 on the season. Then, Mountain West foes Utah State and UNLV will tangle in the evening window before Western Michigan and San Jose State close things out with a late-night battle.

The first few weeks of the season have brought several reminders of just how unpredictable college football can be. With conference play starting to ratchet up, the intensity should only increase and bring more thrilling finishes along with some unexpected results.

Here is the full rundown of all the Week 4 action on CBS Sports Network. All times Eastern.

The Bulls were in the game until late in the fourth quarter, but defensive woes appeared once again as the Chanticleers averaged 9.5 yards per play. Eastern Michigan is aiming to get bowl eligible for the fourth time in the past five seasons under coach Chris Creighton after a huge 30-21 win at Arizona State last week.

Western Kentucky will have to avoid looking ahead to a big game with Sun Belt foe Troy next week. Quarterback Austin Reed, a transfer from Division II West Florida, has been solid for the Hilltoppers with nine touchdown passes in his first three games at the FBS level.

Aidan Robbins ran 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 of a bye and looking the cleanse the taste of a 35-7 loss to FCS Weber State. The Aggies are the reigning Mountain West champions, but off to a 1-2 start. UNLV will be looking to snap a six-game losing streak against its MWC foe.

Spread: San Jose State -7 | Will the Spartans cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 4 projections

Storylines: Western Michigan dropped to 1-2 with a 34-13 loss to Pittsburgh last week as the Broncos mustered just 180 total yards. The Spartans were off last week after a hard-fought 24-16 loss at Auburn in Week 2. The Spartans have been particularly stingy through two games in 2022 while seeking to reclaim the momentum gained during a 7-1 season in 2020. With league games ahead for both squads, this one will be critical for each team’s hopes of reaching bowl eligibility.
