The Panthers and Aggies both enter this one seeking their first Conference USA victory of the season. Florida Atlantic  had rattled off three consecutive non-conference victories before falling in Week 5 at home against Liberty. As for conference newcomer New Mexico State, it’s off to a 2-3 start overall following an improbable bowl berth in coach Jerry Kill’s first season as year ago. The Aggies’ rushing attack ranks 22nd among all FBS at an average of 201.4 yards per game, and it faces an FIU defense that ranks 123rd against the run.

Sam Houston at Liberty

Life in the FBS has been a wakeup call for Sam Houston, as the Bearkats find themselves 0-4 on the season heading to Lynchburg, Virginia. Sam Houston scored a combined 10 points in its first three games of the season before dropping a 35-28 thriller in overtime to Jacksonville State in Week 5, so it’s no surprise to see the line lopsided in Liberty’s favor. Under first-year coach Jamey Chadwell, the Flames have rolled to a 4-0 start, including a 2-0 mark in Conference USA play. Liberty’s offense is averaging 501 yards per contest, which could signal another long evening for a Sam Houston defense that is allowing 361.5 yards on average. 

Boston College at Army 

Date: Saturday, Oct. 7 | Time: Noon ET 
Location: Michie Stadium — West Point, New York
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder
Live stream: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports App (Free)
Spread: Army -3 | Will the Black Knights cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 6 projections here

Coming off a Week 5 bye, Army faces an ACC opponent for a second consecutive game after losing an in-state battle at Syracuse in Week 4. Boston College has been anything but consistent amid its 2-3 start. Four of the Eagles’ first five games have been decided by three points or less, including losses to Northern Illinois and Florida State and victories against Holy Cross and Virginia. A Boston College defense that ranks 97th against the run will need to rally for its best effort yet Saturday as it faces Army’s always-tricky triple option attack. 

North Texas at Navy

Date: Saturday, Oct. 7 | Time: 3:30 ET 
Location: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium — Annapolis, Maryland
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder
Live stream: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports App (Free)
Spread: Navy -6 | Will the Midshipmen cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 6 projections here

Navy looks to snap against a two-game skid while North Texas heads to Annapolis, Maryland riding high after back-to-back wins. The Midshipmen’s rushing attack that ranks fifth nationally will look to take full advantage of a Mean Green defense that is dead last in the FBS against the run, allowing 241.3 yards on average. Overall, opponents are averaging 503.5 yards per game against the Mean Green, which is 129th among 130 FBS teams. If Navy quickly finds a rhythm moving the ball on the ground, North Texas could be in for a long afternoon. 

San Jose State at Boise State

Date: Saturday, Oct. 7 | Time: 8 p.m. ET 
Location: Albertsons Stadium — Boise, Idaho
TV: CBS Sports Network [Channel finder
Live stream: CBSSports.com | Mobile: CBS Sports App (Free)
Spread: Boise State -9.5 | Will the Broncos cover? Check out SportsLine’s Week 6 projections here

There’s some urgency for both teams in this one, as the Spartans and Broncos both find themselves sitting under .500 five games into the season. Boise State has the offensive edge on home turf — the Broncos are averaging 420.4 yards per outing compared to the Spartans’ clip of 355.6 — but its defense has been a liability. Boise State is allowing 433.6 yards per contest and ranks 122nd among 130 FBS teams against the pass, allowing opponents to throw for 289.2 yards on average. Look for San Jose State to take some shots through the air as the Spartans look to pull the upset and avoid a 1-5 start.
